Ok. I am curious. How does a COBOL program do this?
Does it cause an abort of the second job? Does it reschedule the second
job for later?
If there are multiple jobs with the same name that need to run, how does
it decide which job gets to run first?
What flags or indicators are being evaluated by the second job that are
set by the first job and remain for the duration of the first job?

Thanks

[HP3000-L] single thread job streams with the same name






I searched the archive looking for something that would prevent multiple
jobs
with the same job name from running at the same time. I found some
solutions but they were not fail-safe so I wrote something that seems to
be
fool-proof. It's a one line command at the front of a stream that invokes
a
command file. The command file runs a small cobol program. If anyone has
a
use for it, let me know.
