Documentation


 This utility is used to identify which dataset in an ensuing dataset compare is
 the "OLD" dataset (as opposed to the "NEW" dataset).  It is specifically
 designed to be used with ISPF option 3.4 (DATA SET LIST UTILITY).  Just type
 $COMPAR1 next to the OLD dataset name and press ENTER.  To execute the compare,
 then type $COMPAR2 next to the "NEW" dataset on the "3.4" listing and press
 ENTER.
