Issue/Introduction

Is there a way to remove print-related ASA (American Standards Association) control characters from reporting?

Environment

z/OS

Resolution

Top Secret 16.0 PTFs RO92039 and RO96001 introduced an enhancement that omits American Standards Association (ASA) carriage control characters from the following reporting. Omitting these print-related characters simplifies the ability to parse report data and can lead to CPU savings.

- RO92039 suppresses ASA carriage control characters from the TSSUTIL report when NOASACC is specified in UTILIN control statements.

- RO96001 suppresses ASA carriage control characters from the TSSAUDIT report when NOASACC is specified in AUDITIN  control statements.

Additional Information

The NOASACC control statement is documented in CA Top Secret 16.0 - Reporting.
