Question:

How do I use to ability to remove print-related ASA (American Standards Association) control characters from reporting?

Environment:
z/OS
Answer:

CA Top Secret 16.0 PTFs RO92039 and RO96001 introduced an enhancement that omit American Standards Association (ASA) carriage control characters from the following reporting. Omitting these print-related characters simplifies the ability to parse report data and can lead to CPU savings.

Suppresses ASA carriage control characters from TSSUTIL report when NOASACC is specified in UTILIN control statements.

- For RO96001 applied;
Suppresses ASA carriage control characters from TSSAUDIT report when NOASACC is specified in AUDITIN  control statements.
