Dataset List


The COMPARE command of EDIT has already been mentioned in a "Stupid JCL Trick". However, it can also be used to compare and synchronize datasets. Lines which appear in the other dataset and do not appear in the current dataset appear as information lines (in white). The MD line command can be used to insert these lines into the current dataset. Lines which only appear in the current dataset appear with a label in the line number field (.aaaaa).
