DLM parameter

z/OS MVS JCL Reference

Parameter type: Keyword, optional

Purpose: Use the DLM parameter to specify a delimiter to stop transmission of input stream records. When the DLM parameter assigns a delimiter other than the standard delimiter (/* in columns 1 and 2), the records can include the standard delimiter.

If you use the DLM delimiter to define a delimiter, be sure to terminate the records with the specified DLM characters. Otherwise, all jobs between the XMIT JCL statement and the end-of-file will be transmitted, and processed at the node to which they are sent.

From TSO/E only, TSO/E inserts /* at the end-of-file if the default delimiter is not supplied.
