Removal of Put Nomenclature from the z/TPF product code

With the transformation of the z/TPF product deliverable cycle to a continuous model, APARs PJ45922 and PJ45921 remove the references to the term “product update tape” or “PUT” from the z/TPF product code. Updates were made to remove references to PUT from system error dumps, data collection and reduction reports, the software profiler, continuous data collection, and other areas of the z/TPF system. Instead of updating a PUT level every year, the TPF level will be updated at the end of each year and will reflect that year.
Here is an example of the ZSTAT ENVIR command with PJ45922 and PJ45921 applied.
