What about embedded SQL and using SQL services?

To get a list of IFS names, use:


Use the parameter OMIT_LIST to ignore specific files or folders.

Use a cursor to fetch the entries row by row.

not the purest, but the easiest:

- use PASE commands to get your file list
- redirect that output to a file in the IFS
- use /usr/bin/iconv in PASE to convert the IFS output to EBCDIC
- slurp it into your COBOL program

few of them.
