Data set name
Specify a sequential, partitioned or VSAM data set, or HFS file. You can specify a generic data set name to select from a list.
Member name
Specify for a partitioned data set. Enter a blank or a pattern for a member selection list.
Volume
Specify a volume serial number if the data set is not cataloged.
Disposition:
Old or Reuse
Copies from the beginning of the existing data set.
Mod
Appends the input records to the end of the data set. MOD is invalid for a member of a partitioned data set.
Binary mode
Data in an HFS file is processed without record delimiters (in binary mode). If the option is not selected, the data is assumed to be text and is processed as a collection of records delimited by EBCDIC New Line (X'15'), Carriage Return (X'25'), Line Feed (X'0D'), or their combinations.
Reclen
The logical record length used to deblock data into fixed records if Binary mode has been selected. The default record length is 80.
