Powerful Batch Processing Utility

The OMC-FLASH BATCH Utility efficiently executes OMC-FLASH functions in BATCH mode. Batch COPY capabilities enable users to copy data from large jobs to their specified output file (//OUTPUT DD) without the TSO session delays often experienced when performing large copy operations. An OPERLOG and SYSLOG function are also included to copy records from the Operator Log and System Log to the specified output file in batch. The BATCH FIND and RFIND facilities enable users to perform batch FIND operations, with RFIND options to process multiple jobs with the same name or characteristics, and SORT and TOP functions to control the order of jobs to be searched. An EXITIF parameter is also provided to terminate processing based on the value returned by any previous function.
