Someone told me about a useful linux command, for using z/OS… so I thought I would pass on some one-liners to help other people.
sshfs email@example.com: ~/mountpointz
This mounts a remote file system to give local access to files on a remote box. This allows you to use gedit remotely, including z/OS files in USS. For example gedit mountpointz/mqweb/servers/mqweb/mqwebuser.xml .
For z/OS the files must be tagged. Use chtag -p name to see the tag. For me it needs a tag of “t ISO8859-1 T=on” . Without the tag it display the file in the wrong code page.
This keeps a history of your clipboard, with hot keys.
Linux settings -> keyboard mapping
Ctrl+1 give me the x3270 with “tso@” in the title. The command executed is wmctrl -a tso@
Ctrl+2 give me the x3270 with “colin@” in the title. The command executed is wmctrl -a colin@
I start the x3270 with
x3270 -model 5 colin@localhost:3270 &
x3270 -model 5 tso@localhost:3270 &
model 5 makes the screen 132 characters wide by 80 deep
Map the 3270 keyboard to define the uss escape key
