Hi, I am sure this might have been covered in different separate topics spread out across the forum. But I want to know how does the outputs for all these types of JCL checking techniques differ. Precisely, how does each work? How are they different from each other?

1) TYPRUN=SCAN
2) JCL PREP
3) !JCK

If there are some more of such JCl checking techniques, could someone list them down with their workings too ?

TYPRUN=SCAN is just that, a quick scan, and comes as standard with z/OS

The others are, I'd guess, pay for products which I have never used.

Hello,

To use TYPRUN=SCAN you submit the jcl and it is syntax checked, not executed.

I'm not sure about !JCK - it may be something local or it may be the same thing as - here ROSCOE has JCK - which is another "checker" but the jcl is not submitted.

If you search the forums, there has been other discussion about PREP.

Some sites have a "JCL" command in their TSO/ISPF session that checks jcl without submission.

Other than internals, they all validate the syntax of the jcl presented to them.

I'm not sure if that is what you are looking for or not icon_confused.gif

!JCK is JCL-Check's edit-macro interface.
