"DITTO" is an abbreviation for "Data Interfile Transfer, Testing and Operations Utility". It is a general-purpose utility program and can scan, display, list, alter, and create files or parts of files on card, tape, disk, ... devices.
You can run DITTO on z/OS, z/VM and z/VSE. In z/VSE DITTO is available as batch program and CICS transaction.
DITTO as a CICS transactions provides a 3270 full screen utility, that you can use from the z/VSE IUI user. Just press PF6 on the IUI "z/VSE Function Selection" panel. Now you have a CICS terminal and can enter the CICS transaction name "DITT" (or DITTO).
DITT (Online Ditto) starts a dynamic partition to provide the interfaces required by the functions you are using on your CICS screen. The DITT performance therefore depends on the priority of that partition and the workload of higher priority partitions.
At first the DITTO Task Selection Menu is displayed and you can use many DITTO function in full screen mode. Some function are also available in the IUI selection panels. Be careful when you change data.
