When working in SEU with either OCL or REXX, CL commands cannot be prompted. To use commands in these members, you have to either find the manual or a command line and prompt the command, remember or write the keywords down, then return to SEU and type the command. This is not only time-consuming, but also error-prone.
There is a simple way to prompt the command in SEU. While editing, press F13 to change defaults, tab down to "Source Type," change it to CLP, and press Enter. When you return to SEU, you're working on a CL program. Now you can prompt the command, fill in the blanks, and let the system generate the keywords and do syntax checking for you.
When the CL command is displayed in the source member, it will be indented and line wrapping may occur. OCL will require no additional changes. In REXX, CL commands will need to be placed inside single quotes.
To change back, press F13 and change the "Source Type" back to its original value. The OCL or REXX statements will generate syntax errors if edited before switching back to the original source type.
Now you have a good CL command in your OCL or REXX procedure in a lot less time and without having to worry about syntax errors.
