Computer Reference Notes for SysProgs and Computer Users

Reference Notes for SysProgs and Computer Users

MVS, OS/390, z/OS, Unix, AIX, Windows

Common vendor products and system commands.

These notes are not intended to be a detailed reference guide. With the plethora
of areas a systems programmer's path may lead, this guide fills in occasionally
where memory might fail.
This list also makes it easy to cut and paste some of the longer commands.
In an attempt to make these notes base more useful to others I'll expand or add further elaboration upon request.

When application program executes with repeatable read protection, rows referenced by the program cannot be changed by other programs until the program reaches a commit point. RS - read stability - Similar to repeatable read but does not completely isolate an application process from all other concurrently executing application processes. Under level RS, an application that issues the same query more than once might read additional rows that were inserted and committed by a concurrently executing application process. UR - Uncommitted Read - Allow read of uncommitted data.

IPCS

IPCS New for z/OS 1.4 COPYCAPD extract captured SVC dumps from a SAD. Suppose your system crashes before you capture the offending SVC dump. It may be possible to extract it from your Stand Alone Dump. LISTTOD reformat displayed timestamps. Doesn't alter the dumps but is great when dealing with LPARS that are running in multiple time zones or products that use GMT.

APPCPORT Which user IDs can access the system from a given LU (APPC port of entry). Also, conditional access to resources for users entering the system from a given LU. APPCSERV Whether a program being run by a user can act as a server for a specific APPC transaction program (TP). APPCSI Access to APPC side information files. APPCTP Use of APPC transaction programs. APPL Access to applications. CONSOLE Access to MCS consoles. Also, conditional access to other resources for commands originating from an MCS console. CSFKEYS Use of Integrated Cryptographics Service Facility/MVS (ICSF/MVS) cryptographic keys. See also the GCSFKEYS class. CSFSERV Use of ICSF/MVS cryptographic services. DASDVOL DASD volumes. See also the GDASDVOL class. DBNFORM Reserved for future IBM use DEVICES Used by MVS allocation to control who can allocate devices such as: Unit record devices (printers and punches) (allocated only by PSF, JES2, or JES3) Graphics devices (allocated by VTAM) Teleprocessing (TP) or communications devices allocated only by VTAM. DLFCLASS The data lookaside facility. DIRAUTH Setting logging options for RACROUTE REQUEST=DIRAUTH requests. Also, if the DIRAUTH class is active, security label authorization checking is done when a user receives a message sent through the TPUT macro or the TSO SEND, or LISTBC commands. Profiles are not allowed in this class. DSNR Access to DB2 subsystems. FACILITY Miscellaneous uses. Profiles are defined in this class so that resource managers (typically program products or components of MVS or VM) can check a user's access to the profiles when the users take some action. Examples are catalog operations (DFP) and use of the vector facility (an MVS component). RACF does not document all of the resources used in the FACILITY class by other products. FIELD Fields in RACF profiles (field-level access checking). GCSFKEYS Resource group class for CSFKEYS class. GDASDVOL Resource group class for DASDVOL class. GLOBAL Global access checking table entry. GMBR Member class for GLOBAL class (not for use on RACF commands). GSDSF Resource group class for SDSF class. GTERMINL Resource group class for TERMINAL class. IBMOPC Controlling access to OPC/ESA subsystems. JESINPUT Conditional access support for commands or jobs entered into the system through a JES input device. JESJOBS Controlling the submission and cancellation of jobs by job name. JESSPOOL Controlling access to job data sets on the JES spool (that is, SYSIN and SYSOUT data sets). LOGSTRM Reserved for MVS/ESA. NODES Controlling the following on MVS systems: Whether jobs are allowed to enter the system from other nodes Whether jobs that enter the system from other nodes have to pass user identification and password verification checks NODMBR Member class for NODES class (not for use on RACF commands). OPERCMDS Controlling who can issue operator commands (for example, JES and MVS, and operator commands). (2) PMBR Member class for PROGRAM class (not for use on RACF commands). PROGRAM Controlled programs (load modules). PROPCNTL Controlling if user ID propagation can occur, and if so, for which user IDs (such as the CICS or IMS main task user ID), user ID propagation is not to occur. PSFMPL Used by PSF to perform security functions for printing, i.e. separator page labeling, data page labeling & enforcement of user printable area. PTKTDATA PassTicket Key Class enables the security administrator to associate a RACF Secured Signon secret key with a particular mainframe application that uses RACF for user authentication. Examples of such applications are IMS, CICS, TSO, VM, APPC, and MVS Batch. RACGLIST Class of profiles that hold the results of RACROUTE REQUEST=LIST,GLOBAL=YES or a SETROPTS RACLIST operation. RACFVARS RACF variables. In this class, profile names, which start with & (ampersand), act as RACF variables that can be specified in profile names in other RACF general resource classes. RRSFDATA Used to control RACF remote sharing facility functions. RVARSMBR Member class for RACFVARS (not for use on RACF commands). SCDMBR Member class for SECDATA class (not for use on RACF commands). SDSF Controls the use of authorized commands in SDSF. See also GSDSF class. SECDATA Security classification of users & data (security levels and security categories). SECLABEL If security labels are used, and, if so, their definitions. SMESSAGE Controls which users a user can send messages (TSO only). STARTED Used in preference to the existing started procedures table to assign an identity during the processing of an MVS START command.

ACFSVC Macro
The ACFSVC macro is used to invoke the CA-ACF2 SVCs. The SVC invoked when TYPE=A is specified in the ACFSVC macro manages all CA-ACF2 database requests, performs all system entry validation, performs all TSO command limiting, generates any SMF records, and performs resourc rule processing. The parameter lists that it uses to process inf. are described in Chapter 5, "Parameter Lists and Mapping Macros." The TYPE=S SVC performs data set, volume, and program validations, & generates SMF records. The TYPE=S SVC uses the ACDSV parm list to pass inf. Use of this SVC for user calls and external calls is described in Chapter 6, "Special Usage Considerations."

ODM commands
odmadd Adds objects to an object class. The odmadd command takes an ASCII stanza file as input and populates object classes with objects found in the stanza file.
odmchange Changes specific objects in a specified object class.
odmcreate Creates empty object classes. The odmcreate command takes an ASCII file describing object classes as input and produces C language .h and .c files to be used by the application accessing objects in those object classes.
odmdelete Removes objects from an object class.
odmdrop Removes an entire object class.
odmget Retrieves objects from object classes and puts the object information into odmadd command format.
odmshow Displays the description of an object class. The odmshow command takes an object class name as input and puts the object class information into odmcreate command format.
Examples
sed "s/oldword/newword/g" filein >newfile.txt
change all occurrences of oldword in filein to newword and write to newfile

pr chap2 | sed "s/Page *[0-9]*$/(&)/" | enq
This command sequence encloses the page numbers in parentheses before printing the file chap2. The pr command puts a heading and page number at the top of each page, then the sed command puts the page numbers in parentheses, and the enq command prints the edited listing.
The sed command pattern /Page *[0-9]*$/ matches page numbers that appear at the end of a line. The s subcommand changes this to (&), where the & stands for the page number that was matched.

sed -n "/food/p" file.txt
display every line in file.txt that contains the word food.

awk '/food/' file.txt
display every line in file.txt that contains the word food.

awk '/food | fish/' file.txt
display every line in file.txt that contains the words food or fish.

awk '/a(ll)?(nn)?e/' testfile
prints to standard output of all records with the string ae or alle or anne or allnne.

awk '/l{2}/' testfile
print line if exactly two occurrences of 'l' are found.

awk '/t{2,}/' testfile
print line if at least two occurrences of 't' are found.

awk '$1 ~ /n/' testfile
print line if first field contains 'n'.

awk '$1 !~ /n/' testfile
print line if first field does NOT contain an 'n'.

'$1 /^n/' - first charcter of 1st field
'$2 /n$/' - last char of 2nd field
'/a..e/' - chars 'a' & 'e' separated by 2 chars
'/a.*e/' - chars 'a' & 'e' separated by 0 or more chars
'length >72' - select lines longer than 72 bytes

Line positioning
H top of screen (home)
M middle of screen
L last line of screen
n j next line -- same column
n k previous line -- same column
n + next line (first non-white space)
n - previous line (first non-white space)

Positioning within a file
n ^d move down half screen
n ^u move up half screen
n ^f scroll up a screen
n ^b scroll down a screen
1G go to top of file
G go to bottom of file
n G go to line n

Searching
/pattern search forward for pattern
?pattern search backward for pattern
n n repeat last / or ?
f char find char forward on current line
F char find char backward on current line
n ; repeat last f or F
:1,$s/old/new/g global search & replace
:3,9s/old/new/g search and replace between line 3 and 9

Leaving vi
ZZ exit from vi saving changes
:wq same as Z
:q quit from vi -- will not quit if changes have been made
:q! quit from vi -- will quit even if changes have been made

File manipulation
:w write changes to current file
:w filename write changes to filename
:e filename edit filename
:r filename place filename below current line r
:n next file

Marking and returning
ma mark current line with an A
'a return to the line marked with an A
'' return to position last used

Yank and put
n yy yank line
p put back yanked lines below current line
P put back yanked lines above current line

Miscellaneous
u undo last change
. (period) repeat last change
J join current and next line together
^g report line number and file name information on status line
^l refresh screen
:set nu display line number for whole file
:set nonu display no line number
