that you have made errors in editing a file and want to cancel your
editing session.

file remains as it was when last written.

session when you enter an incorrect filename on the EDIT command

format of the file is fixed-length or variable-length, or to display the
current RECFM setting. The format of the RECFM subcommand is: r I r , I RECfm 'PI 1111 , ., L J __________________________________________________________ -J F indicates fixed-length records.

occupies a smaller amount of disk space because trailing blanks are
deleted from each line before it is written onto disk. When variable-length VSBDATA files are written to disk, however,
trailing blanks are not truncated (to allow VSBDATA file to span
records) .
