well, I have this task for university:
1 part. Using JCL language, write a script that creates new dataset with these parameters:
Record format . . . : FB
Record length . . . : 80
Block size . . . . : 800
2 part. Using JCL write a script, that copies a sequential dataset
3 part. Know how to start JCL scripts. Show all started jobs list.
4 part. Write a script with an error and show the error message.
Can anyone help me, what to do or at least put me on the road? I googled a lot, but I do not get good information and knowing almost nothing about using mainframe.
As far I found out that I should go to 3.2 and allocate new file with the ending jcl. Is that correct? I know how to create datasets, read something in a book, but not sure how to start scripting :/
(by the way, that is only 1 task in my studies and I am not planning to work with mainframe, that's why I am looking for an easy answer )
