Is there any way to confirm the TSO#BLK= default value for previous versions?



Release : 14.6



Documentation for unsupported versions cannot be downloaded.

To confirm, please check to the PVOPT that exists in the macro library of previous version.

For R14.5: Prefix.CAIMAC(PVOPT)
You will see that the default value is 40 as follows.

  &TSO#BLK=40,        # TO CALC TSO PANDD2 BLKSIZE 6559743+
  6559743               Allow to control TSO PANDD2 BLKSIZE
  5987937               The new field TSO#BLK is defaulted to
                        40. This number will be used to
                        multiple by the LRECL of the member.

(TSO#BLK= is a parameter added in R14.3; the default value was 40 in R14.4 as well.)
