CL to JCL conversion

I am working on an assignment where we need to convert AS400 CL to JCl (which will be executing on MicroFocus enterprise server or microfocus cobol executing engine).

Do we have AS400 CL equivalent commands for JCL or Shell Script or COBOL.

RE: CL to JCL conversion

No, there's no emulation of OS/400 CL in JCL, or in any other environment I'm aware of.

In the 1990s there were a few commercial software packages which emulated CL on other operating systems, such as California Software's Baby/4xx, but I don't know if any are still available.

There may be migration partners who offer CL-to-JCL conversion services; again, though, I don't know of any. Perhaps someone else will reply with more useful information.

CL, at least back when I was using it, is not a complex language, and someone with the appropriate skills should be able to develop a CL-to-something translator fairly easily. REXX might be a good target, or a mix of JCL and REXX.

RE: CL to JCL conversion

I believe we may have a solution for you. Our products, The SCL Generator and Recovery Option ASPRO will generate SCL to run under Windows and OpenSCL. What we need is your COBOL source code and a flowchart. E-mail me at ekariel@ebecomputing.com if you are interested. Kind regards, Ebe.
