Hi,

I need information on space parameter.


For example SPACE=(5000,(1000,500), RLSE)

Could you please explain the above statement?
How much memory it will allocate?

Thanks,
Munish

Zero memory.

SPACE allocates disk drive areas, not system memory.

This is a question you can easily answer yourself by going to the manuals link at the top of the page, finding the JCL Language Reference manual, and looking up the SPACE parameter.

Hello,

At the top of the page is a link to IBM Manuals. Among them is the JCL Reference. Look at the SPACE parameter of the DD.

If you find something in the manual that is not clear, post what you found and what is not clear. Someone will be able to clarify.
