Early S/360 JCL was pretty simple, particularly on the "downlevel" OSes
like DOS/360. A "load and go" FORTRAN job on DOS could be as simple as:
...data for program
On CDC SCOPE JCL was also pretty simple; the same job was roughly like
this. Note that the JCL for the entire job comprises the first data
JOB card with octal time limit(!)
