This JCL script shows how to copy members from one PDS library to another.
I have retained the input file being tape in the original JCL script for nostalgic reasons only; you will unlike ever use this nowadays. As unlikely, you will be allocating the output dataset on a specific volume, so normally you could omit the VOL=SER= clause as well.
If you omit the S M= (SELECT MEMBER=) clauses, the entire content of the INDD input PDS will be copied to the OuTDD output PDS.
//STEP01 EXEC PGM=IEBCOPY //SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=* //*INDOC DD DISP=SHR,DSN=SYS1.ST006868.DOCLIB,LABEL=(06,SL), //* VOL=SER=R6868A,UNIT=CTAPE //INDOC DD DISP=SHR,DSN=YOUR.INPUT.LIBRARY //OUTDOC DD DISP=(NEW,CATLG,DELETE),DSN=YOUR.OUTPUT.PDSLIB, // VOL=SER=DASD1A,UNIT=SYSDA,SPACE=(9600,(240,30,20)) //SYSIN DD * COPY INDD=INDOC,OUTDD=OUTDOC S M=MEMBER1 S M=MEMBER2 S M=OTHERMEM S M=MEM4
THe IEBCOPY is a simple copy utility but it has many many options, of which you will only practically use a fraction. The application above I think is the one you will use in 99% of occasions. The DFDMDdfp Utilities manual sums all the options up.
