1) There is a tool called spoofy which allows to connect to Mainframes DB2 server from terminals and allows to extract/view/DDL/DML/TCL etc.

2) Client db2 is not available from terminal where spoofy will be installed and launched. If spoofy is installed on mainframe server, can it be accessed from the terminal. If so how.

3) Please give links to documentation or send documents to k_murli_krishna_2000@yahoo.com.

4) Please give me links to eval versions of this tool. If eval version has been removed or no longer available, please zip & mail to same address.

5) I will send you file splitter, an application to split files at source and join them back again at destination in case there is a size problem.

6) More points are a certainty if you can solve my problem.

I assume that you mean 'SPUFI', an utility to process
SQL from an input file.
Using SPUFI is described in

SPUFI is a mainframe application. You'll typically
use TSO in a 3270 terminal emulation to use that

For easy access to mainframe data from a Windows machine,
there's QMF.

There's a whole section on QMF on the db2 for OS390 library
page: http://www-3.ibm.com/software/data/db2/os390/v7books.html

A 60 day evaluation copy of QMF is available from
