    Try RTFM. There's probably a very good reason. But also try asking on a more relevant forum; the SYSIN DD * stuff appears to have been discussed 10 gazillion times over here http://ibmmainframes.com/about48659.html, and probably some of those 10 gazillion discussions were precisely what you're asking.

    To avoid annoying them over there though, make sure you read the rules and FAQs, and do a search, before you post your question. For great answers from forum members, see my sig.
