JECL LST Statement

The LST (or PRT) statement may occur anywhere in a POWER job stream. There
may be multiple LST statements and when one is encountered it will segment the
output for that job into multiple Q entries in the LST queue. The keywork form
of the LST statement is:

* $$ {LST} [DISP={D }]

[,CLASS={A }]


[,FNO={blank }]
{formsnumber XXXX}









dispostion D - default: at end of job print then delete
H - place the printout into hold status
K - print then keep with dispostion L
L - leave unprinted in the print queue
N - do not intercept output, print directly to printer
T - spool to tape

class - A one alphabetic character entry. Output writers are started by class.

remid - A number from 0 to 200 representing the remote station to which the output
should be send. A 0 will direct the output to the central location.

formsnumber - a 4 character alphanumeric identifier specifying the forms type. When printing and
the class matches but the formsnumber does not the console will provide a message
requesting the proper forms be mounted on the appropriate printer.

norbm1 - The number of records that will spool before a warning message is displayed on the console.

norbm2 - The additional number of records that will spool before further warning messages are

linetab - Carriage control tape format. These are represented as 26 2 digit number separated by
commas. The first number is the distance between channel 12 and the first punch, the
second number is the distance to the channel 1 punch and so on. This is ignored if
and FCB is specified.

norbs - The number of spooled pages before the output is segmented and appears as a separate entry
in the output queue.

phasename - The entry in the core image library for a forms or universal character set buffer layout.
The option applies only to UCBs and may consist of F for folding operation code to allow
upper and lower case and/or C to prevent mis-matches between the UCB and the print train
from producing a data check.

listaddr - The physical or dummy printer to which output is to be directed.
