Naming compiler listings or side files

Store compiler listings or side files in sequential data sets, or as members of PDS or PDSE data sets.

When you store a compiler listing or side file in a PDS or PDSE data set, the member name to use depends on the application programming language:

If you store with any other name, then Z Abend Investigator is unable to find the compiler listing or side file.

If compiler listings or side files are stored in sequential data sets, and the data set names follow a convention that permits the program name to be part of the data set name, then the specification of these data sets in the DataSets option can be done easily using variable substitution, as described in DataSets option data set name substitution symbols.
