Using the SDSF REXX interface – Part 2

Here’s another REXX exec using the SDSF REXX interface. This one will issue a command to the local system.

/**REXX**************************************************************/   
/*                                                                  */   
/* ISSUCMD - Issue a command.                                       */   
/*                                                                  */   
/* Input args:                                                      */   
/*                                                                  */   
/*  Delay   - # secs to wait for command completion                 */   
/*  Command - Command to issue (do not need leading /)              */   
/*                                                                  */   
/* Output: return code from the command.                            */   
/*                                                                  */   
/********************************************************************/   

parse arg delay, command                                                 

Address 'TSO'                                                           

IsfRC = isfcalls( "ON" )                                                 

saved_delay=ISFDELAY            /* save curr delay */                   
ISFDELAY=delay                  /* Set delay time  */                   

address SDSF "ISFEXEC '/"command"'"                                     
saverc=rc                                                               

ISFDELAY=saved_delay            /* restore delay   */                   

IsfRC = isfcalls( "OFF" )                                               

return saverc

Using the above command to start a started task on the local system:

/* REXX */
rc=ISSUCMD(2,"S CICS1")
return 0
