CLISTS

CLISTs are a series of commands or instructions put together to perform some function.  They are short programs or procedures for TSO.  They are executed from a command line in TSO.  We have written some CLISTs for functions you may need to perform. You can access these WIU written CLISTs from option W of your TSO menu.
