Pinned topic Equivalent of ISPF copy member

‏2012-04-13T18:37:22Z |
In the ISPF editor I can copy a member by typing in either COPY <membername> on the command line and specifying where to copy with an A or B at the suitable line, OR by just typing in COPY in the command line and then I get the Edit/View Copy panel where I can specify the member.

In LPEX I'd expect an INSERT file feature that mimics this but don't see one. I can of course open the other member, Ctrl-A, Copy, and then come over and paste it but that clutters up my clipboard unnecessarily.

Am I missing something?

    In remote systems view, you can drag the member and drop it into whatever pds you want. If you want to simply replicate it in the same pds, you can drag and drop on the pds and rename the new copy (it will prompt you)

    Another alternative in the remote systems view would be to copy/paste the member. CTRL+C the member, then navigate to the desired PDS and CTRL+V. You can navigate very quickly through the remote systems view using the arrows on the keypad, no click/mouse required! TIP: if you are in remote systems view, you can start type the name of the filter/pds and it will jump you to that point.

    I'm talking about inserting one file in another. see below...
    I already have some data in the 1st file, need to append to it. So the member will be inserted after the line where the "a" is.

    As I said in text editors or wordprocessors this is usually an Insert File command. See URL=http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/29/20120413171038.jpg/IMGhttp://img29.imageshack.us/img29/7013/20120413171038.jpg[/IMG][/URL]

    Hi Sumithar. You can use RDz's Snippets to do the ISPF command line Copy function. You might consider signing up for RDz Distance Learning - https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/mydeveloperworks/wikis/home?lang=en#/wiki/Learn%20RDz-Learn%20COBOL

    ....or at least check out the free RDz user guides here: https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/mydeveloperworks/wikis/home?lang=en#/wiki/W2e35a50023ef_4b39_a867_04fb9e1d3329/page/Distance%20Learning%20Resources/attachments

    Thanks Jon, will look further into making use of snippets.
