This command finds an unused batch process and starts it. It then prints BATCH NUMBER = <batch number> where <batch number> is a decimal integer which may be used in future commands to identify this batch process.
If there are no unused batch processes in the system, the message NO BATCH AVAILABLE is printed.
After the batch process is started, it immediately enters waiting state as the batch queue will initially be empty. It will automatically be restarted when a batch input / output file pair is entered into the batch by an @APPEND-BATCH command.
