SuperC utility (option 3.12)

Note: For an introduction to the SuperC and SuperCE utilities (options 3.12 and 3.13), see SuperC reference.
The SuperC utility (option 3.12) is a dialog that uses the SuperC program to compare data sets of unlimited size and record length at the file, line, word, or byte level. The panel shown in Figure 1 is used to specify the name of a new data set.
Note: In this context, a new data set is an updated version of a previously created data set, such as a data set in your private library that has been modified but has not yet been promoted.

This panel requires only the names of the input data sets and a foreground or batch mode setting.

  1. For DBCS searches and compares to function properly, ISPF must be invoked with the JAPANESE keyword, on a terminal that supports DBCS, and the MIXED process option must be supplied to SuperC.
  2. When a member of a PDSE version 2 data set that is configured for member generations is specified as the old or new data set, the current generation of the member is used for the comparison.
