This book takes the pain out of learning to code job
control language for everyday jobs in your VSE shop.
In fact, it combines the information from more than
a dozen IBM manuals to teach you what you need to know
about JCL...and about your VSE system.
It starts by explaining the basics of VSE...what it
is and how it works...and describes some software products
that aren't part of VSE but are used all the time...like
the spooling program, POWER, and the interactive editor,
Then, it teaches you how to: compile and execute application
programs; handle all types of files; maintain VSE libraries
and sublibraries; code POWER statements (JECL) to manage
job scheduling and output processing; write and use
procedures (that includes coverage of conditional JCL,
symbolic parameters, and nested procedures); and run
common system utilities.
