Answer / ram narayan

Hi, A Proc is nothing but it can be a set of Program which
is utilised by the Main JCL.It's basically used for
avoiding the number of lines of coding the JCL statements
in the main JCL and we can call the Proc's when ever needed
for performing a certain kind of action.

There are 2 types of Proc's and they are Instream & Catalog
proc.

The nesting in Procs are possible and the maximum number of
levels are 15 levels.
