General questions about the z/OS system

Postby prino » Sat 06 Jun 2009, 21:49

In particular:

  • Is there a PL/I compiler, and if yes, which version?
  • How secure is the system, i.e. who can look at my libs, should I decide to create any?
  • Are there any limitations on the dataset sizes?
  • Are there any restrictions on job running times?

  • PL/I Version 3.3.0, use following cataloged procedures:
    IBMZC *
    IBMZCB
    IBMZCBG
    IBMZCPG
    IBMZCPL
    IBMZCPLG
    It will be upgraded to V3.6.0 in the near future.
  • The owners can alter (define, update, and delete) their datasets, with global read.
  • There is no limit on dataset size, but please do not abuse it.
  • There is no job running time limit, however you better use your own limit in JCL statement, such as TIME=NOLIMIT

Any chance we might see the old V2.3.0 PL/I compiler, which used to have the wonderful "count" option?

Also, can you update IPLINFO, latest copy from Mark Zelden's site is in my (prino.rahp.exec) lib

Thanks for the new IPLINFO. It is installed and reports are here:
cgi-bin/mainframe/mainuser?F=IPLINFO

For PL/I V2.3, I need to look into the old systems to see if we are lucky, but this takes time. Please be patient if you really need this version.

You do not know how happy I am that the old PL/I V2.3.0 compiler is available.

Very, very happy bunny! :D :D :D :D
