Subject: Re: How do I copy a file from a "Librarian PDS"?
That error message is due to a limitation of the TSO EXECIO routine. It
processes a sequential DSORG=PS dataset, or a single member of a PDS if
allocated by the system so that it behaves like one.
If Librarian provides access routines then you can use them - Rexx ones if
any loadable modules using standard MVS linkage via Address LINKPGM etc.
As far as I know, the term 'PDS' is misleading when dealing with stuff like
Librarian and Roscoe libraries. They are proprietary formats that can not
easily accessed using standard MVS routines.
