What is the syntax of a MacKinney Batch to CICS CNTL=NEW command?
After making changes to a program and recompiling, one needs to perform a CNTL=NEW each time CEMT SET PROG NEW is executed. We execute CEMT SET PROG NEW from a batch job using MacKinney Batch To CICS. So we are trying to do the same thing with CNTL=NEW.
The command to use is:
STAR CNTL 22 CNTL=NEW,PROG=XXXXX
Here is a breakdown of the command:
STAR -- MacKinney command to start a transaction
CNTL -- The transaction to be executed (limited to 4 characters)
CRLP -- The terminal that will be attached to the transaction
16 -- The length of the data to be passed to the transaction
=NEW,PROG,XXXXX -- The data to be passed to the transaction
