How to get CA Calendar Routines 6.0 and prepare installation

Environment

Release:
Component: TCCR

Resolution


1. Download  

You can download it via
https://support.ca.com/us/download-center.html
Type "calendar" in the input field.
You will get two files - "TRC600.ESD" and "TCRX600AM0000.pdf".
TCRX600AM0000.pdf is the "Applications Manual".
 
2. Upload to z/OS
 
The TRC600.ESD file should be uploaded into such a z/OS data set:
...
Organization  . . . : PS  
Record format . . . : U   
Record length . . . : 0   
Block size  . . . . : 4096
...
using binary transfer mode. 6 CYLs are sufficient.
 
 
3. Restore the ESD file to (virtual) tape
 
Customize and run a job step like this - check all please:
...
//ESDR   EXEC PGM=CAESDR,PARM='NOVOL'                      
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*                                     
//DISK     DD DISP=SHR,DSN=your.TCCR60.ESD.dsn               
//TAPE   DD DSN=any.dsn,LABEL=(1,SL,RETPD=20),  
//          DISP=(NEW,KEEP,DELETE),UNIT=VTAPE              
//                                                          
//                                                         
...

4. Unload files from (virtual) tape
 
Now you can unload the three files as follows:
...
//LOAD01  EXEC PGM=IEBCOPY                                            
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*                                               
//SYSUT1   DD DISP=(OLD,KEEP),                                       
//            DSN=TRC.TAPE6000.CNTL,                                 
//            UNIT=VTAPE,                                            
//            VOL=SER=123456,                                        
//            LABEL=(1,SL),                                          
//            DCB=DEN=4                                               
//SYSUT2   DD DISP=(NEW,CATLG,DELETE),                               
//            DSN=your.TCCR60.CNTL,                                
//            STORCLAS=cls,                                          
//            SPACE=(3120,(40,20,10)),                               
//            DCB=(LRECL=80,BLKSIZE=3120,RECFM=FB)                   
//SYSIN    DD DUMMY                                                  
//*------------------------------------------------------------------*
//LOAD02  EXEC PGM=IEBCOPY                                           
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*                                               
//SYSUT1   DD DISP=(OLD,KEEP),                                       
//            DSN='.TAPE6000.COPYLIB',                                
//            UNIT=VTAPE,                                            
//            VOL=SER=123456,                                        
//            LABEL=(2,SL),                                          
//            DCB=DEN=4                                               
//SYSUT2   DD DISP=(NEW,CATLG,DELETE),                               
//            DSN=your.TCCR60.COPYLIB,                             
//            STORCLAS=cls,                                           
//            SPACE=(3120,(400,200,100)),                            
//            DCB=(LRECL=80,BLKSIZE=3120,RECFM=FB)                   
//SYSIN    DD DUMMY                                                  
//*------------------------------------------------------------------*
//LOAD03  EXEC PGM=IEBCOPY                                           
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*                                               
//SYSUT1   DD DISP=(OLD,KEEP),                                       
//            DSN=C.TAPE6000.SOURCE,                                 
//            UNIT=VTAPE,                                            
//            VOL=SER=123456,                                        
//            LABEL=(3,SL),                                           
//            DCB=DEN=4                                              
//SYSUT2   DD DISP=(NEW,CATLG,DELETE),                               
//            DSN=your.TCCR60.SOURCE,
//            STORCLAS=cls,                       
//            SPACE=(3120,(400,200,100)),         
//            DCB=(LRECL=80,BLKSIZE=3120,RECFM=FB)
//SYSIN    DD DUMMY

Additional Information

CA Calendar Routines is written in COBOL and we provide the source code.
 
It could be necessary to recompile the Calendar Routines when using COBOL 5 and above.
 
The CA Calendar Routines have been successfully tested with COBOL 5.1. 
But COBOL programs that have been compiled with older versions of COBOL may have problems when they are called by programs compiled with COBOL 5.1. Thus we recommend to re-compile the Calendar Routines with COBOL 5.1, for example, if they will be called from COBOL 5.1, for example.
