I haven't had much success with Emacs directly accessing mainframe
files.  scp returns various errors.

z/OS can mount UNIX files with NFS but I haven't tried that either.

Instead I just ftp files back and forth.  At first I thought that
might be a little slow but moving source files and listings back
and forth is pretty much instantaneous.

Other hints:

Use a .netrc

Write commands in Perl.  Perl pipes to FTP are much easier
than C or shell.
