DEST -->>Sends a sysout data set to the specified destination.

Every book says Sysout directs jcl output information and infomration generated during the jcl run to a specified destination. The sme explanation for DEST as well.


What is the difference between SYSOUT and DEST.

Cheers

Hi frnd,

SYSOUT:
A sysout data set is a system-handled output data set. This data set is placed temporarily on direct access storage. Later, at the convenience of the system, the system prints it, punches it, or sends it to a specified location. Because sysout data sets are processed by the system, the programmer can specify many parameters to control that processing.
Eg: //SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=@

DEST:
Syn: DEST=destination

and it generally sends a sysout data set to the specified destination. and also the DEST parameter can send a sysout data set to a remote or local terminal, a node, a node and remote workstation, a local device or group of devices, or a node and userid.

but note one thing ' the DEST parameter only on a DD statement with a SYSOUT parameter. Otherwise, the system checks the DEST parameter for syntax,then ignores it.'



Hope enough

eg:
//DDPRINT DD SYSOUT=(A,WRITER001),DEST=node

This makes the output on DDprint to send to 'node' specified in DEST.

Thanks
Vik.
