 RLSJOB2         RELEASE JOB 2                          TAAJOEW

 The Release Job 2 command  releases one or more jobs that are  in a HLD
 status by  using the system RLSJOB command.   Generic job names or user
 names  may  be  specified  along  with a  subsystem  name.    An ACTION
 parameter allows either  *CHECK or *RELEASE.   RLSJOB2 can assist  when
 a set  of jobs  needs to be  released.  You  must have  *JOBCTL special
 authority to use RLSJOB2.

 See the companion tool HLDJOB2.

 A typical command would be:

               RLSJOB2       JOB(ABC*) ACTION(*RELEASE)

 All  jobs beginning with  the name ABC  that are in a  HLD status would
 be released.  A spooled file would be displayed with the results.
