In JCL a proc is a set of JCL, starting with a PROC statement (it may be instream in the the JCL, ending with a PEND statement, or in a separate member of a procedure library) that may be executed with an EXEC PROC=procname statement. Procs are often used for JCL that should be executed many times with no or few changes, such as compile procs. Note:Symbolic parameters can be passed to a proc or over-rides can be made to a proc by the JCL executing the proc.

I hope this helps.
