JCL IEBPTPCH Utility.

You can use IEBPTPCH to print or punch all, or selected portions, of a sequential or partitioned data set or PDSE. Data can also be "printed" or "punched" to disk or tape.

IEBPTPCH can be used to print or punch:
  • A sequential or partitioned data set or PDSE, in its entirety
  • Selected members from a partitioned data set or PDSE
  • Selected records from a sequential or partitioned data set or PDSE
  • The directory of a partitioned data set or PDSE
  • An edited version of a sequential or partitioned data set or PDSE
  • A data set containing double-byte character set data
You can specify the format for the records that you are printing or punching, or you can use IEBPTPCH's default formats. The default formats are:
  • Each logical output record begins on a new printed line or punched card.
  • Each printed line consists of groups of eight characters separated by two blanks. Up to 96 data characters can be included on a printed line. Each punched card contains up to 80 contiguous bytes of information.
  • Characters that cannot be printed appear as blanks.
  • When the input is blocked, each logical output record is delimited by "*" and each block is delimited by "**".
  • Sixty lines per page will be printed.
If you specify your own format, using the RECORD utility control statement, make sure that your output record length does not exceed the capability of the output device.
IEBPTPCH provides optional editing facilities and exits for routines that you want to use to process labels or manipulate input or output records.
