1 RDz – Mainframe Comparison Chart ("Cheat Sheet")
TSO/ISPF RDz – Integrated Development Environment Mainframe – z/OS PC – Windows – where the code is being developed JCL JCL. If doing offloading from z/OS, shell scripts – on AIX machines Manually analyze code RAA i Edit Code - ISPF LPEX or ISPF mode editor Compile/Compiler Options Syntax Check – and/or Build Application – Compiler options under RDz Submit Job Edit JCL and submit job, or just use the Context menu and Submit Unit Test – DISPLAY/READY Trace, Xpeditor Debug Perspective – Local Project Integration Test – Xpeditor Remote Systems – z/OS Debug Tool Integration QA – Regression Test - WinRunner Remote Systems Testing – and utilizing Rational Function Tester ABEND-AID/IBM Fault Analyzer RDz – Integrated Fault Analyzer File-Aid/IBM File Manager RDz – Integrated File Manager PDS (library) Project – or Folder Set JES Remote System / JES Endevor/ChangeMan – or Your SCLM 3rd Party SCM utilizing RDz's CARMA feature; ClearCase utilizing native integration; SCLM utilizing the SCLM DT Perspective and/or Local History ISPF Option 0 Preferences ISPF Option 1 and Option 2 LPEX Editor ISPF Option 3.1 (Library Utilities) Project Explorer and Context Menu in Remote Systems Explore ISPF Option 3.2 (Dataset Utilities) Project Explorer and Context Menu in Remote Systems Explorer ISPF Option 3.3 (Move and Copy) ISPF Option 3.4 (DSList) Project Explorer and Filters and Context Menu in Remote Systems Explorer and LPEX Editor ISPF Option 3.8 (Outlist) Remote Explorer – JES – My Jobs ISPF Option 3.11  3.15 (Extended Search) Search menu ISPF Option 4 (Foreground) Run ISPF Option 6 TSO Command Shell – with some functional limitations (e.g. cannot issue Host Execs) ISHELL Remote Systems Explorer - USS files/filters + Context menu OMVS USS Command Shell SPUFI/QMF Data Perspective

2 RDz – ISPF Comparison Chart – PF-Keys
ISPF Editor LPEX Editor PF 1 = Help F1, Help Menu*** See slide notes PF 2 = Split: Split the session (lets you use two functions of TSO at the same time.) Ctrl/2 or Context Menu – Open New View – can open unlimited # of views PF 3 = End Ctrl+F4 / Ctrl + 0, or close the Content Area PF 4 = Return Close the Content Area PF 5 = RFind (repeat last find ) Ctrl/F – and /<text> from LPEX command PF = 6 RChange (repeat lst change) Ctrl/N PF = 7 Move Backward PgUp key – or slider in window PF = 8 Move forward PgDn key – or slider in window PF = 9 Switch between screens during a split session; goes with PF 2 Mouse – or Alt + Shift + Right/Left PF = 10 Move left Home key, or slider in window PF = 11 Move right End key, or slider in Window PF 12 Retrieve For LPEX commands, the Up Arrow Use ISPF Option 0 to customize PF-Keys Use Preferences to customize and extend Function key behavior The LPEX Context Menu can be accessed from the Right-mouse button – and from the Windows Menu key (on the keyboard between the right Alt & Ctrl keys) It should be noted that with the LPEX editor, it is not necessary for most of the above functions to actually press Ctrl/Key combinations, as the functionality is available from a context menu (right-mouse) In LPEX F1 gives you language-sensitive help (pressing F1 while the cursor is on a COBOL keyword will display help for that keyword). To get LPEX help, enter the help command from the LPEX command line.

3 RDz – ISPF Comparison Chart – Primary Edit Commands
ISPF Editor LPEX Editor Home key – Jump to the Command Line Escape key – jumps to the LPEX command line AUTOSAVE/REC Prompt for Save on exit, and Autosave (Preferences), and the asterisk – next to unsaved file names BOTtom LPEX command: bottom / Ctrl+End CANcel If have not saved, Close Content Area w/Save no CHANGE – All – NEXT, CHARS, X, ALL PREFIX, FIRST, SUFFIX, LAST, WORD, PREV, [col-1] [col-2] Supported using replaceText, Ctrl+F or the Search window: Change All, Next, PREV, Prefix and Suffix (with wildcards), Prev, Word, [col-1][col-2], P Copy Member Name LPEX command: Get filename CREATE Save file as…, or use Snippets View FIND – NEXT, CHARS, X, ALL PREFIX, FIRST, SUFFIX, LAST, WORD, PREV, [col-1] [col-2] Supported using findText, Ctrl+F, or the Search window: Find All, Next, PREV, Prefix and Suffix (with wildcards), Prev, Word, [col-1][col-2], P Not supported: First, Last HEX – Displays all lines in Hexadecimal Display one individual lines in Hex ISPF Macros Not available – but can be re-written using Java for LPEX. Also, note that with the LPEX functionality some of the Macro functionality may not be necessary LOCATE Ctrl+L, or use the Outline View MODEL Snippets and Templates (both options) MOVE Member Name LPEX Get command, in a different way, the Snippets View NUMBER LPEX command: number std (columns 7380), or number cob PRINT – from ISPF 3.4 LPEX command: print, or Ctrl+P PROFILE – are the changes made to your profile Preferences Replace Member Name Snippets functionality RESet LPEX command: expandAll, or: action showAll, or Ctrl+W Save Ctrl/S or LPEX Save command Sort LPEX command: sort STATS – updates statistics Windows updates file statisticsautomatically SUBmit LPEX command: Submit, or edit JCL/Context Menu/Submit, or use Context Menu/Submit option TABS Can set margins in Preferences TOP LPEX command: top / Ctrl+Home TSO SUB LPEX command: submit, and edit JCL/Context Menu/Submit, or use Context Menu/Submit option UNNUM LPEX command: unnum ***Changes to Preferences are persistent, even if they are changed via LPEX commands. Also you can write/modify User Profiles which customize LPEX settings (but this requires writing a Java class and a plug-in).

4 RDz – ISPF Comparison Chart – Primary Edit Commands – Picture Strings
ISPF Editor LPEX Editor Simple String Y Previous String N/A Delimited String Text string Picture String Partial Picture Strings – special characters Y – with regular expressions P'=' – any character P'-' – any non-blank character P'.' – any non-displayable character P'#' – any numeric character P'-' – any non-numeric character – any alphabetic character P'<' – any lower-case character P'>' any upper-case alphabetic character P'$' – any special character (not alphanumeric)

5 RDz – ISPF Comparison Chart – Edit Line Commands
ISPF Editor LPEX Editor – ISPF Mode LPEX Editor – lpex Mode A, An – After A, An Context menu B, Bn – Before B, Bn COLS – show columns Columns always shown C, Cn, CC – Copy C, Cn, CC D, Dn, DD Context menu or Ctrl+Backspace F, Fn – First (used with eXclude) F, N - Find excludes lines of code I, In – Insert lines I, In Press <Enter>, or LPEX command: insert LPEX command: add L, Ln – Last (used with eXclude) M, Mn, MM – Move R, Rn, RR, RRn – Repeat lines Context menu – or Ctrl+D S, Sn – Show (used with eXclude) Filter TABS – used with TAB On Set with Preferences X, Xn, XX eXclude X, Xn, XX O, On, OO – Overlay O, On, OO Use Rectangle Copy/Paste TS, TSn – Text Split Ctrl+<Enter> <Enter> <, <n, <<N Shift Data Left <, <n, <<n Use Rectangle Select – shift >, >n, >>n Shift Data right >, >n, >>n (, (n, ((, ((N – columns left – Used with COBOL (, (n, ((n ), )n, )), ))n – Columns Right ), )n, ))n I don't know what all the supported line commands are off the top of my head, but see the following help page: Developing > Developing COBOL, PL/I, Assembler, and C++ applications > Language Editors > System z LPEX Editor > z/OS extensions to the base LPEX editor > System z LPEX commands > ISPF LPEX commands. The ISPF commands come from a number of different products/development teams, so the documentation is a bit convoluted, but the above page contains links to all the relevant documentation.

6 RDz – ISPF Comparison Chart – LPEX Editing Operations – 1 of 2
LPEX Editor ISPF Editor Refactor – Remove Noise Words: - IS, THEN, PROCEED TO N/A Multiple Line Comment/Uncomment Virtual margins – in the editor Code completion (Content Assist) Open Copybook Open Declaration – of variable or PERFORM'd paragraph from anywhere in the Procedure Division Perform Hierarchy Refactor – wizard for intelligent variable name changes Outline View Filter View – Show only Divisions, SQL,CICS,DL/I, Code (no comments), etc. COBOL, PL/I and HLASM keyword / language help Show lines that have been changed during edit (before save) Find and Change against multiple file types Block Marking (Ctrl+Down, Ctrl+Up, Ctrl+Home, Ctrl+End) Virtual 'A' and 'B' Column lines in the source code Allocate Like Remote System Filters Side-by-side Compare and/or Restore from Local History Close all split screens in one operation (context menu) See file attributes and statistics at all times (in a View)
