if You had cared to look at the IBM jcl manuals

z/OS V1R6.0 MVS JCL User's Guide
http://publibz.boulder.ibm.com/cgi-bin/ ... 0712160458
and
z/OS V1R10.0 MVS JCL Reference
http://publibz.boulder.ibm.com/cgi-bin/ ... 0604022956

You would have seen that the word REVERT was never used anywhere
so the question as stated should have never been asked

well, I guess that there is no rest of the question ...
translation:
What is the meaning of the REVERT command in JCL? Please explain, it was asked in an interview

thats my interpretation, but IMBW ( I Might Be Wrong )
cheers

Hi Enrico,

If there was more to the question and tmjarin will post more of the interview dialog about what was being discussed when "revert" came up in the interview, we may be able to determine what the question pertains to. . . (i.e. what was the "real" question").

In these forums "revert" often means "reply" but i've not seen this in connectoin with jcl. . . :?
Hope this helps,
d.sch.

What does this mean? How does it relate to this topic?
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

Probably Changeman, not JCL. Either the interviewer is ignorant, or he's come up with a question to puncture specious claims of knowledge in interviewees.

Hi Akatsukami,

ok for the language issues of the people being interviewed ( some deficiency might be tolerated ),
but from the number of bad interview questions reported on these forums
it looks like the language and communication skills of the interviewer are almost non existent
