I’m at home so don’t have the code snippet.
I want to use INPUT to read a JCL card. The input is free-text. A comment, which sometimes includes a COMMA. English text. No matter what I try, I can’t suppress the delimiter to become nothing. I tried ID=’ ‘, which actually makes the delimiter a space, which makes it worse. ID=’’ won’t compile. It forces me to use a delimiter, and I don’t want one!
Here is says making ID = blank will disable it, but it doesn’t work:
IM=D and IM=F with various combinations, with no luck.
It is obviously running in batch with JCL.
