Name

wto — Co:Z utility to issue a Write To Operator (WTO) from USS.

Synopsis

wto [-r ROUTCDE,...] [-d DESC,...] message
    

Description

This z/OS Co:Z utility command issues message as a write to operator (WTO).

If the ROUTCDE or DESC codes are omitted, the system uses the routing code specified on the ROUTCODE keyword on the DEFAULT statement in the CONSOLxx member of SYS1.PARMLIB.

NOTE: The message will be prefixed by: BPXM023I (userid) unless the userid has access to "BPX.CONSOLE" in the SAF "FACILITY" class. Additionally, in order to prevent a recursive logging error, the wto command will fail with an error message when logging has been redirected to /dev/console.

Messages with embedded spaces must be quoted.
