Issue/Introduction



We are supporting a customer that uses EASYTRIEVE. In some of their EASYTRIEVE code, they use the statement "-INC xxxxxx " , where xxxxx is some type of copy or include member. The double quotes were added by me and are not part of the customer code. I can't find this type of keyword or syntax in the EASYTRIEVE documentation. Is it perhaps from an older version, or maybe customization by the customer?  

Environment

Release:
Component: EZTPLS

Resolution

The -INC in Easytrieve code means that a Copy member is being resolved from Librarian. 
The same as a ++ type piece of code means a Copy member is being resolved from Panvalet. 
A %member in Easytrieve code means a macro, is being resolved from a PDS.
 

Additional Information

An example of a -INC for easytrieve is;Using an Options Table dataset with the following settings: 

MAC#LIB 1 
MACDDN PANDD 
MACTYPE D 

and in the JCL add these assignments: 
... 
//PANDD DD DISP=SHR,DSN=<eztplus.macros>.MASTER,SUBSYS=LAM <== Librarian Access Method 
// DD DISP=SHR,DSN=<eztplus.source>.MASTER,SUBSYS=LAM 
... 
//SYSIN DD DISP=SHR,DSN=<eztplus.source>.MASTER(<member>),SUBSYS=<lam>
