What does the FastCopy PFROCESS parameter do?
Release : 7.7
Component : PDSMAN for OS/390
Used when sites are converting from PDSFAST to PDSMAN.
PFPROCESS=Y tells FastCopy to recognize and handle those PDSFAST commands which FastCopy has a direct counterpart to. The purpose of PFPROCESS=Y is to significantly reduce (for most, it almost eliminates) the JCL changes a converting site would have to make in order to be using FastCopy.
The PDSMAN PFPROCESS (defaults=Y) parameter, coded on $IEBCOPY, is
an option to instruct FastCopy to intercept and process PDSFAST control statements.
PFPROCESS = Y instructs FastCopy to intercept and process PDSFAST control statements.
PFPROCESS = N stops FastCopy from intercepting and processing PDSFast control statements.
With PFPROCESS=N, FastCopy will pass these PDSFAST commands to IEBCOPY.
Here is the list of PDSFAST functions that FastCopy can automatically handle with PFPROCESS=Y :
