About the Tachyon Update Utility
You can use the Tachyon Update Utility to create or update
80-column record ASCII or EBCDIC files.
The actions performed by the Tachyon Update Utility are determined by
which must be prepared before running the utility.
The Tachyon Update Utility supports the most commonly used actions
and control statements of IBMs DFSMSdfp IEBUPDTE utility program.
If you have IEBUPDTE control statements and the corresponding source data
files on your workstation computer, the Tachyon Update Utility allows you to
perform the actions specified by those control statements on your workstation
without the need to upload the files to a mainframe and run IEBUPDTE.
- Often the contents of macro or source libraries are distributed in a
single file with ADD control statements before the contents of each member.
The Tachyon Update Utility can easily create the members as files on your
workstation, ready to be viewed or edited or used as input to programs.
- In other cases you may have received IEBUPDTE control statement files
designed to update some source files. The Tachyon Update Utility can apply
those updates to the source files.
- If you need to prepare control statements for use with IEBUPDTE on a
mainframe, you can test those control statements on your workstation before
you distribute them to the mainframe.
The Tachyon Update Utility can be run using the
command line interface
from a command line window.
If you have JCL to run IEBUPDTE, you can even
run the JCL on your workstation.
