does anyone have or can point me to some JCL example to compile and link a program under enterprise cobol 6.1. I have been doing research all day but I been unable to find a sample, I found a lot of information about the compiler and its options

Most sites customize their compile process. This is because some sites have CA-LIBRARIAN or CA-PANVALENT or SCLM or Endevor or ... for source code management, and some of these products handle the compile process for you wile others don't. You would be MUCH better off talking to your co-workers, team leader, manager, or site support group to find out what to do at your site instead of asking on a forum where we don't work at your site and have no idea what your site does.
Broadly speaking, low-level qualifier IGYSAMP (under whatever HLQ your site uses for the COBOL compiler) has sample code as well as sample JCL (look for IGYWIVP1 and IGYWIVP2 members, for example) to compile some of the sample code. This sample code and JCL is typically not customized to the site, though, and hence may require extensive modification to be usable in your environment.
