Thanks for all the help by the way! You guys are awesome! And again, I’m sorry to the commenters, I have about 40 comments, 8 e-mails and some PMs on Slack still waiting for help with their challenges.
I don’t have enough time to solve the challenges, write blogs and answer everything. I sincerely wish I could help everyone! I’ll do my best to answer the ones I can! I have noticed Akos and other users answering other readers, awesome!
As a non-student I have until the 9th of september 2020 to beat this challenge, but I’ll do my best to finish up to challenge 14 in time 🙂
PS: I have double checked for spelling errors this time (embarrassing)
IBM Z Assembler
IBM Master the Mainframe Part Three – Challenge #10
Copy assembler program source code
Let’s start by creating a new member asmhello in our SOURCE data set. Inthere I’ll copy ‘zos.mtm2019.public.p3.source(asmhello)’.
Let’s sub ; =sd ; st the code and check the output for ASMHELLO in the JES spool.
Let me investigate the issue.
Correct assember program source code error and re-compile
Let’s go back to our source code and locate the undefined symbol. Ok, I’ll try to help. A variable has been defined in the program body. The logic, in the program references, uses these variables. Something seems to be wrong with them.
I will submit the job, again using sub ; =sd ; st and check the output.
Execute successfully compiled assember program interactively
From the ISPF Primary Option Menu I’ll issue the primary command =6 to get to the command console. I’ll execute allocate dataset(*) file(recdd) shr and then call ‘z50087.load(asmhello)’. Substitute your ID 😉
Submit JCL job to execute successfully compiled assember program
Now let’s do the last step for this challenge. Issue the primary command tso submit ‘zos.public.jcl(p3ch10)’ to direct the output to P3.OUTPUT(#10). Pick any jobname as always.
