ISPF Line Commands and TSO commands that reference data set names may be "blocked" on a data set list screen generated by the DSLIST command or option 3.4. This simplifies issuing commands against multiple, consecutive data sets.
To select a block mark the first data set with // and then use // to complete the block. The command must follow either the beginning // or ending //, but not both.
Supported commands include:
Line commands (D - Delete, E - Edit, etc),
- REXX or CLIST program execution.
- IDCAMS - LISTCAT, DELETE, etc.
- DFSMSHSM - HDELETE, HRECALL, etc.
