VSE/POWER enhancement in z/VSE 5.1: TKN job attribute
Ingolf24 120000DRN3 Visits (784)
z/VSE users that installed or migrated to z/VSE 5.1 have already noticed that each VSE/POWER job and all of its spooled output have a TKN job attribute.
A VSE/POWER job can create multiple LST and PUN outputs. With the TKN job attribute VSE/POWER operator commands can now address all spooled outputs of one job as an entity.The CTKN operand has been added to PALTER, PDELETE, PDISPLAY, PHOLD; POFFLOAD, SELECT and PRELEASE commands to select output produced by a specific job.
The TKN attribute is defined either by the job submitter via the TKN operand of the "* $$ JOB" statement or by VSE/POWER itself, if no TKN operand is specified. In the latter case VSE/POWER will select a hexadecimal value between 00000001 and 7FFFFFFF.
Enjoy your weekend.
