Hi All,

In JCL, For fixed length records LRECL is set equal to record length.
For Variable lenght records LRECL is set equal to size of the largest record length plus 4 bytes.

Example: If the Largest record length is 150. LRECL value is 154.

Could you please clarify me, why the extra 4 bytes added?


Thanks
