Once the skeletons are generated, they can be tailored and the tailored output can be stored in a dataset.
The following allocations are needed before invoking skeletons from REXX for file-tailoring.
Skeleton should be placed in a partitioned dataset as a member and the PDS should be allocated to DDname ISPLIB as follows:
“ISPEXEC LIBDEF ISPSLIB DATASET ID('skel-dataset')”
Skel-Dataset denotes the PDS in which skeleton is stored as a member.
The tailored output can be stored in a sequential dataset or as a member in partitioned dataset. This output dataset should be allocated to DDname ISPFILE as follows:
“ISPEXEC LIBDEF ISPSLIB DATASET ID('Result-dataset')”
Result-Dataset denotes the PDS in which skeleton is stored as a member.
