TAA Tools

The  Convert  Device  Display  command  creates   an  outfile  of  one,
generic,  or  all  display  devices.    The outfile  created  is  named
DEVDSPP.    The information  in the  outfile is  taken from  the device
description for each device.

The model file is TAADEVFP with a format name of DEVDSPR.

The  devices  which  are  converted  can  be  seen   by  using  DSPOBJD
OBJ(*ALL) OBJTYPE(*DEVD) and having an Attribute of:

        - DSPLCL
        - DSPRMT
        - DSPVRT

A typical command would be:


The DEVDSPP  file would be  created in QTEMP  with one record  for each
of the display types described previously.

CVTDEVDSP escape messages you can monitor for

None.  Escape messages from based on functions will be re-sent.
