OS/390 and z/OS Freeware
by Lionel B. Dyck
God Bless America
Welcome to my website which I've dedicated to making available to the 'world' software that I've written over the years. Here you will find XMITIP, the OS/390 and z/OS E-Mail application (on the TCP/IP Tools page) and many other tools for OS/390 and z/OS. These tools are primarily written in REXX with a few Assembler programs.
My name is Lionel B. Dyck and I've been in systems programming since 1972 (starting with MVT 21.6 - remember IBM APARs delivered on punch cards) and have developed a number of tools over the years. I've created this site to (1) share useful code that I've developed and (2) to return a little back to the community of mainframe systems programmers from whom I've learned so much. I've gleaned code and knowledge from the MVT Tools Tapes (remember the Blue Berets?) to the current CBT Tape and a wealth of Web Sites. I hope my contributions here are helpful to others.
Note: I have retired from information technology and thus am no longer involved with z/OS. I will leave this site up for now in the hope that these tools, utilities, articles, etc. will prove helpful for others. If asked questions I may be able to provide an answer but with limited access to a z/OS system I will not be able to create fixes or updates. It has been a fun 40+ year run.
If anyone is looking to hire someone with ISPF/REXX experience please contact me as I'm available for part time or short term projects.
