Hi,

When u execute a program some time u will get S722 abend due to no of lines at the job log is exceeded or out of limit

In order to avoid this abend, we may use

Code:
//
/*JOBPARM LINES=20


SO this prevents S722 abend which arrives after execution.

Addition to above, it is an JES2 statement called as JOB parameter statement.

This Job parameter statement gives you some control over the printed output lines for the entire job.

SYNTAX is:

Code:
/*JOBPARM LINE=NN


LINE=10 for 10,000 lines.

Hi,

I am not able to understand the the following statement in my JCL.

Code:

/*JOBPARM proc=xxxxx


Where does this referred PROC reside??


i have searched for it in sys1.proclib and in the JCLLIB ORDER datasets and they are not present there.
What is this parameter used for??

Thanks
.

z/OS V1R9.0 MVS JCL Reference /*JOBPARM Parameter Definition:

Quote:

PROCLIB=ddname
Requests a JES2 procedure library by its ddname, as defined in the JES2 procedure used to initialize JES2. Typically, JES2 procedure library ddnames are in the format PROCnn, where nn is either 00 or 1 or 2 decimal numbers from 1 through 99. You can, however, use any valid ddname as long as the name matches the ddname in the JES2 procedure. The system retrieves called cataloged procedures from the requested JES2 procedure library.
If you omit the PROCLIB parameter, or the ddname cannot be found in the procedure used to start JES2, JES2 uses the procedure library specified on the PROC=nn parameter on one of the following JES2 initialization statements:

JOBCLASS(v) for each job class
JOBCLASS(STC) for all started tasks
JOBCLASS(TSU) for all time-sharing tasks

If the PROC=nn parameter is not defined on the appropriate initialization statement, or if it is not valid, JES2 uses the default library, PROC00.
