Interview question in Attra, How do you check the syntax of JCL without submitting the job.
Ans : TYPERUN = SCAN

What is there to clarify?
in the JOB statement and look at the informational messages generated.
Note the misspelling in the original post. . .

Thank you very much...but is there some command called 'JSCAN' to perform the same ???
I have answer to the interviewer as 'TYPRUN=SCAN'

the typrun=scan only works when a job is submitted.
otherwise, you need a third party product, like jscan,
to perform JCL syntax checking without SUBMITting the job.
