PROBLEM TWO INTRODUCTORY MAINFRAME EXERCISE Logon to your account and open ISPF. The default setting in ISPF is for the command line to be at the bottom of the screen. Most systems programmers, though, prefer to have the command line at the top of the screen. Let's quickly change this so you'll look like an old pro. On the command line, type 0 and press Enter.

Delete the "/" using the delete key (the backspace key will bring you back a space but will not delete characters). Press Enter . The command line jumps to the top of the screen. See next screen to view results.
