The SIGNOFF statement signals the end of an online session or batch run of the system generation compiler. SIGNOFF causes the compiler to:
  • Display a transaction summary
  • Free all resources held by the compiler
  • Remove the session from the list of active sessions maintained by the transfer control facility (if executing under TCF)
Online, SIGNOFF
does not
transfer control to DC/UCF or TCF. The CLEAR key, or the top-line command CLEAR, must follow SIGNOFF to exit the system generation compiler.
For more information about top-line commands, see the
CA IDMS Common Facilities section
.
The SIGNOFF statement is recommended as the best way to terminate a compiler session; however, SIGNOFF is not required to terminate a session:
  • Online
    , you can terminate a compiler session by entering the top-line command END.
  • In batch mode
    , the system generation compiler assumes a SIGNOFF statement if none is present at the end of the input file.
