Here are the show notes for Episode 1 “A Luta Continua” (“The Struggle Continues”).
Our “Mainframe” topic is about the new z/OS V2.2 ISPF 3.17 Mount Table enhancement.
To try it out on z/OS V2.2: ISPF 3.17, then File_Systems pull down, then the new options are #1 or #2. Type “x” for toggling between expanding and contracting. Use the Help pulldown for more commands available.
Our “Performance” topic is about long term page fixing DB2 buffer pools, and a related question: Whether to use 1MB pages.
Under “Topics” we discussed Markdown, a very easy way of creating formatted text. (In fact these notes were written in Markdown using a plain text editor on Linux.)
Not that we are heavy users of Android apps there are apparently plenty of Markdown tools there too. See here.
Martin briefly mentioned the possibility of driving Python’s Markdown processor Python Markdown on z/OS using Jython (which is Python interpreted using Java).
