HI,

That means , what ever prints/displays given in the program , and when the program is executed those statements are displayed in the spool area.

sysout=* (Means print in the spool area)

Thanks,
Gau

SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*

IS USED WHEN THERE IS ANY MESSAGE FROM THE UTILITY.

//SYSOUT DD SYSOUT=*

IS USED WHEN THERE IS ANY MESSAGE FROM THE PROGRAM.

I WILL TRY TO EXPLAIN WITH EXAMPLE.

WHEN WE ARE USING IEFBR14 UTILITY, THIS UTILITY WONT PERFORM ANY OPERATION. THIS IS A DUMMY UTILITY.
THIS UTILITY WONT GENERATE ANY MESSAGE.
SO WE DONT NEED
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
WHEN USING THE IEFBR14


WHEN WE USE IEBGENER UTILITY,
THIS UTILITY GENERATES A MESSAGE THAT
GENARATE AT EOF i.e. end of file, etc

SO THIS MESSAGE IS GENERATED BY THE UTILITY
WE NEED
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
WHEN USING IEBGENER UTILITY.
IF WE ARE NOT CODING THIS , WE WILL SURELY GET ERROR THAT SYSPRINT DD STATEMENT IS MISSING.

I THINK IT MUST BE CLEAR NOW.




IF I AM WRONG SOMEWHERE PLEASE CORRECT ME

THANK YOU

DO SEND ME THE REPLY
