BATCH - using FRED in batch.

FRED programs may be executed from GCOS8 batch using the following JCL:

$      program   fred
$      limits    10,40k
$      prmfl     **,r/c,r,cmdlib/etc/qstar
command line or FRED commands

If the first line of input after the $PRMFL card begins with the command name fred, it is assumed to be a command line for a FRED program. Otherwise, the input is assumed to be a sequence of FRED commands. Note that this input will be converted to BCD, and therefore single case. The O+IL option may be useful to distinguish cases.

Batch FRED has several differences from TSS FRED:

If there is no I* data present, FRED will instead use the system console (TY2) for interactive input/output.
