Can anyone please tell me how many BYTES a DUMP message '(100,dump)' contains? Is it 100 bytes?

Hello,

The only time i've seen something like this is to specify a user abend with a dump but that is in code not jcl.

Maybe it will be more familiar to someone else icon_neutral.gif

Why would cobol come to mind? The code where i used something like this was assembler to force a user abend (assembler has an ABEND macro).

The initial question mentions bytes in a dump. Where did this concept originate? Where did the term "dump message" originate?

Hi Dick,

I have no idea but this was the question how many bytes will be in (100,DUMP). I got this question in one of my JCL test.

Oh Dick excellent.. icon_biggrin.gif
Thanks a lot...

So, (100,DUMP) = 100,000 bytes

I wrote 100 bytes in my test which was wrong

No wonder I didn't recognize it -- it's a JES3 control statement parameter. I've only used JES2!
