Re: Control Block?2009-01-25T17:23:10ZThis is the accepted answer. This is the accepted answer.Control blocks are important... that is how the system manages most everything. At address 0 is the PSA which has pointers to other control blocks. At address 10x is a pointer to CVT (also pointers to more control blocks).
The system control blocks are described in the 'Data Areas' manuals. See:
They are also included in dataset 'sys1.maclib'
