The assign command will associate an IO device with your job.
It is important to use the assign command with certain devices
to guarantee your job unique access to the device. For example,

The assign command takes an optional second argument, the
logical name. If your program outputs to, say, the LPT and
you want the output on a mag tape, you could ASSIGN MTA0 LPT
