Command : DUMP                         
    
Overview : 

The DUMP command is used to cause the system to take an SVC dump of virtual
storage. The contents of the dump may be written to either tape or DASD
depending on where the SYS1.DUMP data set is defined.  The format of the
DUMP command is the same for all of the supported releases, however the
format and optional contents of the reply to the IEEŘ94D SPECIFY OPERAND(S)
FOR DUMP COMMAND vary slightly from MVS release level to level.                                                   
                                                                                
Syntax :
                                                                   
                                                                                
              DUMP  COMM=(text)                                                 
                                                                                
    Operands: COMM=(text)                                                       
              Use this operand to specify the 1 to 1ŘŘ character title          
              (indicated by "text") that you want the dump to have.             
                                                                                
              After the dump command is issued the system will prompt you       
              with the following message:

              Use the following syntax of the REPLY command to respond to       
              the request for DUMP operands:
