This is an MVS software tool package named "The MVS Project Workbench and Files Organizer".
It is also named "The MVS Software Programming Project Work Manager". This tool package can be used by the
MVS programmers to organize their MVS program files
in a data file library into different groups categorized by projects
or by work items, and it can set bookmarks automatically at the
places in a program file where the work was left off during the last TSO edit
This package is suitable for use by entire
groups of programmers involved in only one installation
process efforts. Entire development teams can easily view
each other's work and each other's Project Workbench
setups, provided that they have read access of each
other's data sets.
This package requires that you be able to
allocate a PDSE data set on your system, and it requires
the presence of the IBM REXX Compiler Run-time library.
The REXX Compiler Run-time library is shipped by IBM with
data set names like:
(Note: My thank goes to Mr. Sam Golob, who
wrote the above remarks for this tool package while he
was preparing to include it into his great CBTTAPE tool package for
distribution. However, due to the size of this tool is
too large, it is currently not included in the CBTTAPE
Very Important Remarks:
Some of the users complained that
the IBM REXX Compiler Run-time library is not shipped to
their MVS systems free of charge and their Companies do
not want to purchased it. In this case you may use the source
code EXEC library instead of using the CEXEC library, which is the
compiled version executable library, of this tool. You may download the
source code EXEC library of this tool from the Download section of this
Web site. To use the EXEC library instead of the CEXEC library to
bring up this tool functions, you need to know how to change the
contents of the basic settings in the setup CLIST file which is attached
to this tool package in the zip file.
My tool is basically to be used to improve
the user-friendliness of ISPF system, which can help the
users to write programs and manage files on MVS system
much faster and easier. It is quite absurd that IBM does
not ship this utility library to customers without
