A search list is a list of file structures listed in the order that
the operating system will search through them for a file. There are
two types: the system search list and a job search list.
The system search list, designated by the ersatz device name SSL:,
contains all files pertinent to the daily operation of the system. It
is the same for every job on the system. Only the system
administrator can define and change this list. However, you may
display the system search list using the SETSRC program.
Some of the types of files kept in the system search list file
structures include: accounting files, help and documentation files,
compilers, and system programs.
The job search list, designated by the ersatz device name DSK:, lists
structures that contain user files for an individual job. The system
administrator creates the default job search list for each new user
account. You can display, add, remove, and rearrange the file
structures in your job search list using the SETSRC program. For more
information about the SETSRC program, see the help file SETSRC.
