BCS MVS Proclib Statement

There are those time when a different cataloged procedure is required that does not have an entry in the linklist or the proclib concatenation for your mainframe account on Z/OS. The safest way to accomplish the desired effect is to use the proclib statement.

When you specify JCLLIB on the proclib statement you are able to set a search order for locating cataloged procedures from a procedure library that is not defined in your operating system.

//AMBMVS   JOB (SYS), 'BROOKS COMPUTING SYSTEMS, LLC',CLASS=A,
// MSGCLASS=A,MSGLEVEL=(1,1)
//*
//*
//PROCLIB JCLLIB ORDER=SYSC.PROCLIB
//STEP0001 EXEC FORTGC
//SYSIN DD DISP=SHR,DSN=AMBMVS.PDS.FORT(TP01)

This technique allows the user to avoid creating in stream procs or adding procs to the default proc libraries.
