How can I convert JCL into CLIST

How can I convert JCL into CLIST

How can I convert JCL into CLIST


I have a series of jobstreams with many steps in each.  Ultimately I want to run these jobs in the foreground, under my TSO TCB.  So, I would like to process my jcl through some tool to convert it into a CLIST - with file allocations, etc.

I want this to be done similar to the way many COBOL debuggers convert jcl for debugging an appliction program.

Does anyone know of such a tool?


RE: How can I convert JCL into CLIST

I don't know of any such software, but I do want to point out that CLIST has been "functionally stabilized" for nearly 30 years.  Anyone writing (or generating) CLIST is producing stone tools and napping flints.

Ugh!   (And I mean that sincerely.)

RE: How can I convert JCL into CLIST

I really dont care if it is CLIST or Rexx.  I just want to convert jcl to some kind of allocation list or script.  Any ideas?
