Defines the method by which JCL data is processed when running FCH or DSC with JCL=YES.
Z Data Tools processes each physical JCL record as is, unless it contains a parameter field enclosed in apostrophes. If this parameter continues across multiple records, the records are flowed together to join the parameter before processing.
Z Data Tools reformats the physical JCL records into a single logical JCL statement for processing and then builds a new set of physical JCL records.
