It is desirable to be able to IPL (initial program load) and "bring up" an MVS (Multiple Virtual Storage) system as quickly as possible. One procedure which helps this process is to minimize the operator input during IPL. MVS does this by allowing many operator parameters to be stored in the "SYS1.PARMLIB' dataset where they are referenced by short codes. The operator must still enter these short codes during IPL.
