Starting an external writer when requested

z/OS MVS JCL Reference

When a statement supplying processing options for a sysout data set specifies an external writer, the writer must be started before it can print or punch the data set. The writer is started by a system command from the operator or in the input stream. If the writer is not started before the job produces the sysout data set, the data set is retained until the writer is started.
