Subject: NOERRORABEND option ON OS390 (MVS)
I am curious to know if any MVS sites are using the SAS default option
of NOERRORABEND. From what I have found so far, all (or almost all)
MVS sites change this option to ERRORABEND.
I AM ALSO TRYING TO DETERMINE WHAT KIND OF SERIOUS ERRORS MIGHT BE IGNORED
WHEN NOERRORABEND IS IN EFFECT.
For example, I know that when I run a batch job that writes to a disk
output file, and the file runs out of space, SAS will continue
processing like nothing happened IF NOERRORABEND is specified.
If you know of other situations on MVS where NOERRORABEND can cause
critical errors to go unnoticed, please let me know.
