TAA Tools

The  Convert  Controller   Description  ASYNC  command   converts  one,
generic,  or all  ASYNC controller  descriptions to  an outfile.   This
provides  a simple method  of processing the  information.  The outfile
name is  always CTLASCP.   The  model file  is TAACFGVP  with a  format
name of CTLASCR.

A typical command would be:


Only the  ASYNC controller descriptions  (type ASC) would  be converted
to the CTLASCP outfile in QTEMP.

CVTCTLASC escape messages you can monitor for

      TAA9893    No ASYNC controllers exist

Escape messages from based on functions will be re-sent.

CVTCTLASC Command parameters                          *CMD

   CTLD          The  controller   description  to  be  converted.    A
                 single description, a  generic name,  or *ALL for  all
                 ASYNC controller  descriptions may  be entered.   Only
                 controller   descriptions   of   type   ASC  will   be

   OUTLIB        The  library  in  which  the  file  CTLASCP  will   be
                 placed.  The  default is *LIBL.   If the  CTLASCP file
                 does not already exist, a library must be named.

   OUTMBR        The  member  of the  CTLASCP  file to  be  used.   The
                 default  is CTLASCP.  If the  member does not exist it
                 is added.

   REPLACE       A *YES/*NO  value  for whether  the  member should  be
                 cleared before  writing records into it.   The default
                 is *YES.

                 *NO  may be specified  to add records  to any existing
