The STEPLIB software product is a TSO/E command which allows MVS/ESA, OS/390 and z/OS users to specify private load libraries from which other command processors and programs can be loaded. STEPLIB can be invoked in a CLIST, a REXX EXEC, or in ISPF and works in TSO/E foreground as well as in TSO batch.

Examples of a few STEPLIB commands in TSO or CLIST format:

STEPLIB must be added to IKJTSOxx under the AUTHCMD heading and run from an authorised library
To enhance ISPF applications which do not support LIBDEF ISPLLIB, we recommend using the LLIBDEF product instead of STEPLIB.
