If you ever need to search for a specific keyword in a CA Ideal program contained in your VLS source file, you can use VLSUTIL SCAN to scan your VLS source library.
Is there a way to search for a specific keyword in an Ideal program contained in the VLS source file?
You can use VLSUTIL SCAN Function to scan your VLS source library. Note that the VLSUTIL SCAN function scans only the first 70 columns of a VLS member so it does have limitations. You can also use source transport (IDUTSTRN) to export the program to a sequential file, then search for the keyword in the sequential file.
For information regarding the VLSUTIL SCAN, see the CA IPC Implementation Guide for z/OS.
Information regarding IDUTSTRN can be found CA Ideal CA Datacom Working in the Environment Reference Guide.
