RESTART=* in the JOB card.

Post by E377878 » Tue Sep 26, 2017 10:51 am


What does a RESTART=* does in the Job card, can someone please help me on that?

Is not it that it should be like RESTART=(*,CKPT), where CKPT is the check point. But with out a reference to a checkpoint, what does not mean? I looked at ... ameter.htm but I could not explain RESTART=* to myself.

When I tell somebody to RTFM or STFW I usually have the page open in another tab/window of my browser,
so that I am sure that the information requested can be reached with a very small effort 8-)
