Documentation


 This edit macro is invoked while editing a file that contains JES job
 output (typically extracted using the SDSF PRINT command or the TSO
 OUTPUT command or the GETOUTPT UNIPAC Utility).  It searches through to
 find only the lines that have a "//" in column 12 and deletes the rest
 of the lines.  It then shifts these lines over to column 1.

 This gives you the JCL that was executed to create this JES sysout.  It
 does not, however, show you any in-stream data as that can't be
 reliably re-produced from a JES SYSOUT listing.

 To invoke SYS2JCL, simply edit the dataset that contains the JES SYSOUT
 (it's your job to get the sysout into a dataset) and type SYS2JCL on
 the command line and press .
