Characters that determine the contents and formatting of the error log that you specify with a VNF statement. By placing an INTEGER value before the formatting character, you can specify the number of characters that the object occupies in the error log. You can specify escape sequences as formatting characters. For valid escape sequences, see "Escape Sequences". Table 9-3, "Characters for Specify the Contents of the Error Log for ALLOCATE" lists the characters that specify the contents of the error log. The default value of ALLOCERRLOGFORMAT is the following.
