Member list

You can get a member list by typing B or ML under the CMD heading; B will use the member name as a pattern (if the name is not found; if it is found, it will be browsed directly), ML will produce a full member list, which might look like this:

MEMBER LIST -- USER01.USER.CLIST --DDF List B ------- ROW 00001 OF 00004
 COMMAND ===>                                d      SCROLL ===>PAGE
       NAME                 VV.MM     CHANGED     SIZE  INIT   MOD   ID
       #PDF                  01.08 95/09/29 16:31    48    32     0 USER01
       #PDFB                 01.00 95/06/28 09:17    43    43     0 USER01
       #PDFRX                01.08 90/06/13 10:24    36    25     0 USER01
       #PDFX                 01.00 95/09/29 16:29    47    47     0 USER01

prefix area commands

When you get a member list (and you may often type in a member name you know does not exist in order to get one) then you can use these commands in the prefix area to the left of the member name:
browse the member
delete the member. For obvious reasons there is no abbreviation for this command.
edit the member
execute this member, if it is a Clist or Rexx exec. If you issue exec against something not a Clist or Rexx exec, you will get an error message
rename the member to a new name, which you type in next to the old one in the column provided. The old member name stays in the list, with the new member name next to it, as an audit trail, until you quit the member list.
submit the member to batch for execution. If it is not a valid JCL job, you will get an error message.
Note that at present there is no = command like the one in 3.4.

Command-line commands

b membername
Browse the membername. The member must exist, but need not be on the current member list displayed
e membername
Edit the membername. The member need not exist, nor need it be on the current member list displayed. If it does not exist, a new member is created.
