IEBGENER - This is a dataset utility for copying sequential datasets which produces a PDS or a member from a sequential dataset.

IEBCOPY - This is a dataset utility for copying one PDS to another or to merge PDSs.

REPRO - This is for copying sequential datasets. 


IEBGENER
uses four data sets described by SYSPRINT, SYSIN, SYSUT1 & SYSUT2.

SYSPRINT is the DDNAME of the data set that IEBGENER uses to write messages.
SYSIN is the DDNAME of the data set that contains the control statements to tell IEBGENER how the input data set should be modified while it is being copied.
SYSUT1 is the DDNAME of the input data set that IEBGENER is to copy.
SYSUT2 is the DDNAME of the output data set that is to be created.
 

IEBCOPY is a utility program that may be used to copy one or more members from an existing PDS to a new or existing PDS, to make a backup copy of a PDS, and to reorganize a PDS in order to reclaim the unused space.
