SMP/E API Revisited
A while back, an example was provided here of a C program demonstrating
the SMP/E API. See SMP/E API.
Here is a link to the same program (more or less) in assembler language
You can use it in much the same way. Here is sample JCL:
//SCAN EXEC PGM=SMPAPI,REGION=6M
//STEPLIB DD DISP=SHR,DSN=steplib
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSIN DD *
FILTER=SMODTYPE='PTF' & APPLY = 'NO' & SUPING = 'AR37611';
Note that the terminating character for CSI, ZONE, ENTRY and SUBENTRY
(note the change from SUBENT in the C version) is a blank. A semi-colon
is still used to indicate the end of a filter value. You can split the
filter value over multiple lines in the same way as for the C version.
Note that the assembler code uses the SRST instruction (Logical
Refer to the back issue for more
information about using the SMP/E API.
Note: The source was updated in March 2006 to address a problem with continued FILTER statements.
