can be downloaded from two sources:
- Binary file
which holds DDF in a TSO XMIT file in uncompressed format.
Download this to your PC,
calling it ddflib.bin
- Zip file
- which holds the XMIT format file plus
the documentation pages from the web site in compressed form.
Download this to your PC and unzip it.
You can view this documentation from your PC now,
by opening file 'dfr01.htm' in your browser. This will speed up
viewing it because all the files are now local.
Upload the DDF components to your mainframe
All the DDF components are held in
which should be uploaded to the mainframe.
The transfer must be binary (no CRLF or ASCII translation) and
the target dataset should be LRECL=80 and record format
of fixed. This is very important!
The RECEIVE command
requires that the XMIT files be Lrecl=80 and fixed. It's often best to
pre-allocate this dataset before doing the upload.
On TSO, RECEIVE INDATASET(name)
When prompted by message "INMR906A Enter
restore parameters or 'DELETE' or 'END' +": respond
The hlq1 will typically be your userid, hlq2 is
Install the command
Copy UTCDSM5 (the DDF controlling exec) to your command or exec library,
and edit it as follows:
000029 genHLQ = "hlq1"
000030 genLev2Q = "hlq2"
Change the strings to the first and second level qualifiers you have chosen.
Start by typing
on any ISPF command line; if the DDF main panel displays, installation is complete.
