Permits a designated device to accept jobs/sessions and/or
JOBS The designated device recognizes the Job and
HELLO commands. The device must be interactive
to support sessions.
DATA The designated device will recognize the DATA
command. ACCEPT recognizes the DATA parameter,
but data accepting devices are not supported.
ldev The logical device number of the device for which
the JOB, HELLO, and/or DATA commands are being
If you omit both the JOBS and the DATA parameters, then both the JOB
and HELLO commands, and the DATA command are allowed.
The operator or system supervisor uses this command to
designate which devices may be used to initiate jobs or
sessions and/or data. When a device is configured as an
"accepting" device, MPE/iX will automatically scan the first
input record for a valid JOB, HELLO, or DATA command.
This feature, called auto-recognition, allows users to
access the device without specifically requesting use of the
device with a message to the system console.
If the JOBS parameter is explicitly requested, the ACCEPT
command will not be executed unless the device has been
configured with a default output device.
This command may be issued from a session, job, program, or in
BREAK. Pressing [Break] has no effect on this command. It is
executable only from the console unless distributed to users
with the ALLOW command.
