SORT is a common alias for the entry point for the sort product in your system. So, if your sort product is DFSORT, SORT is an alias for ICEMAN, the real entry point for DFSORT. Similarly, if your sort product is SYNCSORT, SORT would be an alias for the actual main SYNCSORT module. This way, if your shop would discard DFSORT and switch to SYNCSORT, you don't have to alter JCL or programs that use the sort product. As Mr. Sorichetti says, there is no difference.

OK?
