BIM-EDIT Source Program Editor

Platform: z/OS

BIM-EDIT provides an easy-to-use editor, tight source control, a flexible and straightforward security system, flexible operations, and a powerful, yet simple‑to‑use procedure processor.

  • Straightforward security system, offering six access levels and any number of user/library security relationships.
  • Efficient CPU use with a low virtual storage requirement.
  • Allows any number of libraries to be defined and any number of members in a library, without loss of efficiency.
  • Allows you to START, XCTL, or LINK to other CICS programs (when you are logged on through CICS), and you can log off anytime, even when you're editing a member.
  • Supports 3270 CRT models two, three, four, and five, and permits lines up to 253 characters long.
  • Offers a full-function internal mail system, allowing either full documents or single-line messages to be sent from one user to another.
  • Provides source control with multiple facilities, including
    • Check-in/check-out control
    • Member auditing
    • Member stamping
    • Purge control
  • Edits a work copy of a member, never the permanent copy. The work copy becomes a permanent copy only when the SAVE command is issued. If an inadvertent error is made, the command END NOSAVE ends the edit session without affecting the permanent copy.
  • Provides a useful function list feature and easy-to-use LP sessions while maintaining all groups and sessions on a circular chain.
  • Features a split-screen facility so that two different session types can be displayed on the screen.
  • Always stores text in a compressed format, and always compresses outbound screen data to the maximum possible extent.
  • Can be accessed through
    • One or multiple CICSs
    • VTAM directly
    • A batch utility job stream
    • The system console
    • A TCP/IP FTP interface
    • A user-written program calling BIM-EDIT interface routines
  • Provides fast, automatic recovery after computer or other failure, and allows round-the-clock update access to its library, even while it is being backed up.
