Let's see an example to understand In-Stream procedure,Example 1:
//TESTJCL1 JOB 100,CLASS=C,MSGCLASS=Y,NOTIFY=&SYSUID //* //INSMPROC PROC //*START OF PROCEDURE //PROC1 EXEC PGM=SORT //SORTIN DD DSN=HLQ.FILE.INPUT,DISP=SHR //SORTOUT DD DSN=HLQ.FILE.OUTPUT,DISP=SHR //SYSOUT DD SYSOUT=* //SYSIN DD DSN=HLQ.APP.CARDLIB(SORTCARD),DISP=SHR // PEND //*END OF PROCEDURE //* //STEP1 EXEC INSMPROC //* //STEP2 EXEC INSMPROC
Also, If the called procedure is an in-stream procedure, the system retrieves it from the job input stream. You must place the in-stream procedure before the EXEC statement that calls it.
