VSE/POWER: Enhanced wild card support
Ingolf24 120000DRN3 Visits (7524)
Some weeks ago there was a discussion on VSE-L about the position of the wild card in VSE/POWER commands. We took that as a requirement and will enhance the VSE/POWER wild card support in an APAR.
Today: When you specify e.g. the PALTER LST,*SYSA,CLASS=0 command, it addresses the same LST outputs as PALTER LST,SYSA*,CLASS=0 which lists all LST outputs starting with SYSA. The position of wild card is not considered due to historical reasons.
With the z/VSE 5.2 APAR DY47700 you can search job names ended with the specified characters. The corresponding PTF will be available within the next days. A z/VSE 6.1 APAR will follow.
z/VSE 5.2 APAR DY47700: VSE/POWER COMMANDS WITH POSITIONAL OPERAND *JOBN DON'T ADDRESS JOBS WITH MATCHING END OF JOBNAME "JOBN"
The 'SET SEARCH=*JNAME' autostart statement is introduced to activate this functionality.
See the APAR description for more information.
