IMS has been around for a LONG time, and the terminology is peculiar to IMS. Accept the term, learn to use it, and don't worry about its derivation or why that particular term is used. It is what it is.Usage
Before you can access DL/I databases from a CICS program, you must notify DL/I that your program will be accessing a database by scheduling a PSB. Do this by issuing the SCHD command. When you no longer plan to use a PSB, or you want to schedule a subsequent PSB (one or more), you must terminate the previous PSB with the TERM command. (For more information on the I/O PCB and PSB, see the topic "PCBs and PSB" in IMS Version 13 Application Programming)
If this is indeed the case (and I, and probably a few hundred others would vehemently disagree), you urgently need to open a PMR with IBM, as it would indicate a serious problem with the compiler!
