Browse and Edit
Looking at PDSs is done with these commands
under the CMD heading.
- If a member name is given under
Member heading, edit it. If not,
create and edit it.
- If a member is given, browse it. If it's not found, create a
member list using the member
given as a pattern. If no member is specified, produce a list of all members.
- Produce a full member list whether or not a member is specified.
- As for B, but instead of Browsing a member, view it.
When you edit, broswse or view a member, DDF will produce a message giving the
user, date and time of the last edit.
If you are editing and the user was not you, the beep sounds.
This helps to alert you if someone else has updated something you are going to
These commands can also be used on sequential
files, but not VSAM or other data that ISPF cannot process. The member field is
ignored - it's not an error to have a member name, it's just not checked or
