Untrue, and you prove it again.

If it were true you were here innocently, you wouldn't have that spam link, would you? If you are here to be serious, get rid of the link. If not here to be serious, get rid of yourself.

You're a star :-) I've been trying to find admin/moderator since Friday... You've deleted all the others... yes? Oh, I see no. 100+ from the same user, who should be abolished and worse. Edit: Just realised you've not even got on to the **** yet. I should have read my original first... cascade of 10...

If you check in the JCL Reference, not all dataset attributes are propagated by LIKE. Those which are not, you'll have to look to better SMS classes, or by specifying those other things directly.

If there is nothing to distinguish one group of records from another, then every group in the file has to be compare to every other group in the file. Can you show better examples of the data? Needs a key to be able to work.

It's a standard two-file match. Code is available on the web.

Also consider using your SORT product, with JOINKEYS.

OK then, from the documentation for the tool understand what the tool will find.

Take a sample COBOL program (one or more, your choice) and add code which should be found.

Run the tool with your sample COBOL program(s).

I can't really think of anything more useful than that.

Well, the tool does not seem to cover COBOL or z/OS.

I doubt there is much Mainframe COBOL which is directly exposed on the internet.

I've never seen a Mainframe COBOL program do its own password-checking. Even if one did, how would a comment be a vulnerability, since COBOL is a compiled language (so the comment is only in the source)? The types of vulnerability that Linux/Unix/Windows programs face don't exist in Mainframe COBOL.
