  • Code basic Job Control Language statements
  • Code in a programming language
  • Create, alter, and delete data sets using TSO

These skills can be developed by taking:

  • Fundamental System Skills of z/OS (ES10)
  • A programming language course

Objective

  • Write programs using the Rexx language
  • Use various data parsing techniques
  • Use built-in Rexx functions
  • Create user-defined internal and external functions and subroutines
  • Issue host commands from within Rexx execs
  • Code programs that read and write data sets
  • Use instructions and commands that manipulate the data stack
  • Use Rexx debugging tools
