- Requests the system to print all messages generated by PSF.
You can also code this subparameter as Y.
- Requests that the system print no error messages, unless printing
of the data set is prematurely terminated. If a terminating error
occurs, only the set of messages (called a message group) associated
with the error that caused the termination is printed. You can also
code this subparameter as N.
- Requests the system to cancel the printing of the current data
set after the specified number of errors (as represented by the associated
message groups) have been detected by PSF or reported to PSF by the
printer. In this context, errors refers to data-stream errors, and
errors resulting from any malfunction that would cause the printer
to halt, such as a mechanism failure, or out-of-paper condition.
However, these errors do not include those caused by operator intervention.
values for msg-count are 0-999, where 0 is interpreted as infinite.
types of errors that increment the message count are those that induce
a message group to be printed at the end of the data set. However,
even though the printing of the message groups is inhibited by PIMSG=NO,
the associated error still increments the message count. (A message
group consists of a primary message and variable number of informational
messages that result from a single error.)
In the case that
multiple transmissions have been specified for a single data set (user-specified
multiple copies), the message count would apply on a per copy basis.
If the specified number of errors are discovered during the printing
of any copy, the subject copy is terminated, and the remaining copies
are not printed.
