Wat might be this performing. I know it takes will pull out only the Header and Trailer only but somewhat confused about REMOVECC and other parameters. It will be really great if someone can provide a document which provides a detailed explanation about the tool

In Your example:
- REMOVECC removes ANSI control characters from the report.
- NODETAIL prevents detail records from being written to OUTFIL.
- M11 specifies one of twenty-seven pre-defined edit masks (M0-M26) for presenting numeric data.
- TRAILER1 Specifies the report trailer to be used for the reports produced for this OUTFIL group.
However, all these details are well described in above links.
