Quoting Duane Percox (in part):

"If Paul wants to have his output listing be a file he has to prebuild
it..."

Yes, I said that in my 10-29-2008 1:33AM post:

"Guys...

You're getting the error because in the first way used, the Cobol compiler
expects the list file to already exist (Paul's first example):

:COB85XL DISCTST,DISCTST.OBJ.RSEN,DISCTST.LST.RSEN

tells the compiler to direct output to disctst.lst.rsen and the compiler
expects the file to already exist in the permanent domain. Since the file
doesn't, the error "NONEXISTENT PERMANENT FILE (FSERR 52)" is reported and
the compiler aborts."
