Hello:

In JCL for instream data we use
//sysin dd *
-----
------

/*
As soon as the system encounters /* it exits the sysin dd *
But say i have /* as data. Then how do i do it. How do i tell the system that the /* is part of data and not the end of instream data.
I know you can use a NEW DELIMITER in the step. Can anybody give me the syntax for the same.

Thanks
Sri

This is straight forward i guess,

Ref any JCL book. (i remember seeing it in JCL PRIMER )

You can declare any character as delimiter.

Hi Sriteja,

If you have to pass /* in the SYSIN then better to use a different delimiter.
where you can specify the new delimiter by the DLM parameter.

Code Example::

//SYSIN DD DATA,DLM=aa
10
40
/*
shweta
10
90
aa ------> this is where you actually delimit it.

Thanks & regards,
Shinjini Thakur.
