Somebody voted "Don't Know". For anybody else who doesn't know, here's a way to find out. Run this job:

Code:

//S1 EXEC PGM=SORT
//SYSOUT DD SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD *
//SORTOUT DD DUMMY
//SYSIN DD *
   SORT FIELDS=(1,1,CH,A)
/*


Now look at the messages in //SYSOUT. If you see ICE messages (e.g. ICE000I), then you're using DFSORT. If you see WER messages, you're using Syncsort. If you see CAS messages, you're using CA-Sort.

Frank,

I jus ran the JOB given by you to identify which SORT we are using. I hv seen 'WER' msgs..so i gonna polled to SYNCSORT...

Meanwhile I jus came to know that we had used some ICETOOL steps in our existing jobs....

What do u say then?

DFSORT's ICETOOL is a fully documented, fully supported feature of DFSORT (has been since 1991). SYNCTOOL is undocumented, unsupported code in Syncsort that only supports a subset of the features provided by DFSORT's ICETOOL. Syncsort has chosen to use ICETOOL as an alias for SYNCTOOL. So if you have Syncsort and you specify PGM=ICETOOL, you'll use SYNCTOOL. If you only use the subset of DFSORT/ICETOOL functions that SYNCTOOL supports, then your job will work. If you try to use functions supported by DFSORT's ICETOOL that are not supported by SYNCTOOL, then your job will fail.
