- COPY (JES2 only)
- Requests that JES2 copy the input job stream, as submitted,
directly to a sysout data set and schedule the sysout data set for
output processing. The system does not schedule the job for execution.
The class of this sysout data set is the same as the message class
of the job and is controlled by the JOB MSGCLASS parameter.
Note: COPY is supported only in JES2 systems.
- Requests that the system hold the job before execution until
the operator releases it. The operator should release the job when
a particular event occurs. If an error occurs during input service
processing, JES does not hold the job.
- JCLHOLD (JES2 only)
- Requests that JES2 hold the job before completing JCL processing.
JES2 holds the job until the operator releases it.
is supported only in JES2 systems.
- Requests that the system scan this job’s JCL for syntax
errors, without executing the job or allocating devices. This parameter
asks the system to check for:
- Spelling of parameter keywords and some subparameter keywords
that is not valid.
- Characters that are not valid.
- Unbalanced parentheses.
- Misplaced positional parameters on some statements.
- In a JES3 system only, parameter value errors or excessive parameters.
- Invalid syntax on JCL statements in cataloged procedures invoked
by any scanned EXEC statements.
The system does not check for misplaced statements, for invalid
syntax in JCL subparameters, or for parameters and/or subparameters
that are inappropriate together.
In a JES3 system, the system
does not scan the JCL on the submitting system when a //*ROUTE or
XMIT JCL statement follows the JOB statement.
the JCL only through the converter, not the interpreter. The difference
is that the converter basically checks all expressions to the LEFT
of an equal sign plus SOME expressions to the right of an equal sign
(and issues messages that start with IEFC), while the interpreter
checks all expressions to the RIGHT of an equal sign (and issues messages
that start with IEF). For example, a data set name containing a qualifier
that exceeds eight characters, such as
NOT be flagged by TYPRUN=SCAN but would be caught by the interpreter.
