Using the STOP command, you can stop a job if the programmer has coded a stop routine in the program.

Using the CANCEL and FORCE commands, you can cancel a job that is executing. If the job is not currently executing, use a subsystem command to cancel it.

Use the MODIFY command to pass information to a job. This information may be used by the currently running program. Note that you can only pass information that is already defined in the currently running program.
