What is the purpose of DD * statement in JCL?
To answer this question, you need to understand the purpose of the DD statement in JCL (Job Control Language).
The DD statement is used to define and describe datasets in JCL. It is primarily used to specify the input and output datasets required for the execution of a job step.
Option A) Begins the input data prompt at the system console - This option is incorrect. The DD statement does not prompt for input data at the system console. It is used to define datasets.
Option B) Begins an instream dataset - This option is correct. The DD statement is used to define an instream dataset, which is a dataset that is defined within the JCL itself rather than being stored on disk. The instream dataset can be used as input or output for a job step.
Option C) Marks the end of the command stream - This option is incorrect. The end of the command stream is marked by the "//" syntax, not the DD statement.
Option D) Includes all datasets within a naming pattern - This option is incorrect. The DD statement does not include all datasets within a naming pattern. It is used to define specific datasets.
The correct answer is B) Begins an instream dataset. This option is correct because the DD statement is used to define an instream dataset within the JCL.
How can a job send a status message to TSO user at the completion of job?
Where can program check points be stored for use in a restart?
What statement marks the end of instream or catalogued procedure?
To answer this question, you need to understand the syntax and structure of programming languages.
The correct answer is D) PEND. This statement marks the end of an instream or catalogued procedure.
In some programming languages, such as IBM's Job Control Language (JCL), the PEND statement is used to indicate the end of a procedure. It is usually placed at the end of the procedure to signal that there are no more statements to be executed within that procedure.
Options A) STREAM, B) SET, and C) PROC are not typically used to mark the end of an instream or catalogued procedure. STREAM is often used to specify input/output streams in some programming languages. SET is commonly used to assign values to variables. PROC is usually used to define or invoke a procedure.
Therefore, the correct statement that marks the end of an instream or catalogued procedure is option D) PEND.
