The SYSOUT parameter provides a convenient means of routing output to printers or other devices.

//ddname DD SYSOUT=class

ddname - a 1 to 8 character name given to the DD statement

DD - DD statement identifier

SYSOUT=class - defines this data set as a system output data set, usually called a sysout data set and assigns this sysout data set to an output class.
