- If you are using an external security interface, authorization to open SYSOUT data sets is validated during execution of the command. An external security interface verifies the USE $JOB command's authorization to submit jobs to the internal reader. For more information, refer to the Security interfaces topics.
- The USE $PRINT version of the USE command is obsolete and is supplied only for purposes of compatibility.
Under z/OS, the USE $PRINT, USE $PUNCH, or USE $JOB command directs output to a dynamically allocated printer, punch device, or internal reader.
Under z/OS, when a data set is printed or punched, the operating system inserts a separator page or card identifying the job (for example,
ONLINE Model 204) that created the data set. Model 204 also generates a separator page. For $PRINT output under z/OS, if the IBM Block Letter Routine (IEFSD095) is not included in the Model 204 load module, Model 204 generates a separator page that contains a one-line message:
Where userid consists of the first eight characters of the ID of the user who is running the request.
If the IBM Block Letter Routine is included in the Model 204 load module, Model 204 generates a separator that contains the following message lines:
These lines are equivalent to the options
The Block Letter Routine can be linked into your Online or BATCH204 during Model 204 installation.
Under CMS, the USE $PRINT or USE $PUNCH command directs output to a dynamically allocated printer or punch device.
