I've tried to write a Rexx utility to gather info about GDG-s on Tape (=Size of the datasets, practically).
The CTSTI utility is an ISPF application, insofar, if I call it from my Rexx, it shows the ISPF Panel which is unpractical from a batch flow.
My question: if I use it as ISPF, I can supress the panel, but I cannot access the returned panel variable8s) "#TNUMB" etc., because the CTSTI deletes these vars from the pool (and don't stores them in the shared pool).
Or is there still a chance to get these somehow?
Alternatively, can I get the tape size info from a batch job?
