Randomly surfing around this morning – I stumbled across this comment tucked away in some obscure pre-1990’s forum in glorious Times New Roman font. Written back in the days when terminals clunked, mainframes were the size of a room, men were men and women were pleased. I bring you the big list of JBA COMMANDS accessible hidden behind the menus of System/21:
Disclaimer – I’m not responsible for any damage caused by anything you do to your system and you should take a stiff slug of beer before using these commands at your own risk… That being said, *GLUG, let’s continue…
If you have them installed on your system you should see a list like this one:
TOOLS/UTILITIES – Run command TOOLS from any command line in System 21
XAT000 Administration Functions System: HQ140002
Type option(s), press Enter. Position to…..
Opt Command Description
You can also try the WRKCMD command specifying the OSLSYS/*ALL option… This produces a much longer list…
There may also be some commands found in IPGAMF4/*ALL and IPGCFF4/*ALL that are not in OSLSYS… It really depends on whether the person who installed JBA on your system issued the command to copy those tasks into OSLSYS or not…
Good old JBA.
