More specifically refer to the JCL Reference manual for the description of the SYSIN DD statement.

There are two ways to pass data to a program via JCL -

  • The EXEC statement PARM parameter.

    // EXEC PGM=apgm,PARM='1 to 100 characters of data the program can retrieve'
  • An in stream data set

    // EXEC PGM=IEBGENER
    //SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
    //SYSIN DD DUMMY
    //SYSUT2 DD SYSOUT=*
    //SYSUT1 DD *
    Hello lazy, this data was in your JCL
