SYSOUR instead of SYSOUT in COBOL

Postby Tzadik Vanderhoof » Tue Dec 04, 2007 5:06 am

Why does COBOL use SYSOUR for DISPLAY output instead of SYSOUT?

That's a good one, my COBOL displays go to SYSOUT......
Do you have a SUSOUT defined in the JCL?

No, bit even without specifying *ANY* DD's (except STEPLIB) I still get a SYSOUR output file if I do any DISPLAYs. Also, I just remembered that there is a SYSOUT file also, but it comes from COBOL itself ... if there is an ABEND of my compiled program, SYSOUT contains helpful diagnostics, including source line number of the error.

Tzadik Vanderhoof,

Check your compiler option, it should have OUTDD(SYSOUR). Remove that and recompile your program and re-run the job.

Default is OUTDD(SYSOUT).

Check this link for more compiler options.
