The Display Source List command provides a work subfile for your
source member header information. Options on the subfile allow you
- Display the detail member header
- Use SEU in browse mode
- Use the TAA Tool PRTSRCF
The advantage of DSPSRCLST is that the information is available very
quickly (faster than using SEU or PDM to access the members). You
can also scan for a string of characters in the member name or member
The command defaults to display the source in the sequence of:
You can request an option to have the source displayed in the
Unlike PDM or SEU, you do not have to worry about making any changes
with DSPSRCLST. The only options are display or print functions.
The disadvantage of DSPSRCLST is that the member header information
is only as current as the last time you ran the companion CPYSRCLST
command. You can minimize the disadvantage by running the CPYSRCLST
command on a periodic basis to refresh the file (e.g. run it
CPYSRCLST lets you name the source files that you want to keep track
of or specify all source files in a library. DSPFD *MBRLIST is used
for each source file named and the information is placed in the
You can have one SRCLSTP file per library. The file can contain
source from many files in multiple libraries. The logical files
SRCLSTL and SRCLSTL2 are also created.
The DSPSRCLST command lets you name where you want to start viewing
the subfile on the command. For example,
would start the subfile with the first member named PAY. If there is
no member named PAY, the first record prior to PAY would be displayed
You can can scan either the member name or the member text fields.
For example, you could specify:
and you would find all of the members that had OBJ within the name.
You could scan the member text by specifying:
DSPSRCLST SCAN(OBJECT) SCAN(*MBRTEXT)
and the subfile would contain those records that had the string
OBJECT within the member text (either upper or lower case values
would be found).
If scanning is requested, you can limit the records that will appear
by specifying a file and/or library name. If a member name is
specified, the subfile will begin with the member specified.
When the subfile is displayed, a 'position to' option is also
CPYSRCLST Command parameters *CMD
CPYSRCLST is used to build or refresh the SRCLSTP file.
SRCFILE The name of the source file to capture the
SRCFILE Up to 40 files can be named on a single command.
All files named on a single command must be in the
SRCFILE *ALL may be specified for all source files that
exist in a library. If *ALL is specified,
SRCLIB(*LIBL) may not be used.
SRCLIB The library where the source files are. *LIBL may
be used. If *LIBL is used, the first file that is
found determines the library used for all source
files specified on the command.
SRCLSTPLIB The library where the SRCLSTP, SRCLSTL, and SRCLSTL2
files exist. The default is *LIBL. If the files do
not exist, you must name a library for them to be
created in. Both the SRCLSTP and SRCLSTL files are
REPLACE Whether the data in the SRCLSTP file should be
replaced. The default is *YES. *NO should be
specified when you are adding to the file.
NOMBRS What action to take if there are no members in the
file. The default is *ERROR which will cause a
diagnostic message to be sent and the remaining
files will be processed normally. The command will
end with an escape message.
*IGNORE should be specified when you have specified
a list of source files and one or more may not have
any source members. A diagnostic message will be
sent, but the command will end normally as long as
one of the source files has members. If the file
does not exist, the command will always end
DSPSRCLST Command parameters *CMD
DSPSRCLST provides a work subfile display. You can provide selection
criteria and also start the display at a specific record.
MBR The member to start the subfile at. The default is
blank. If HIGHKEY(*MBR) is specified, the value in
MBR will direct the first record displayed. If
HIGHKEY(*LIB) is specified, the member value is the
low order part of the key.
FILE The file to start the subfile at. The default is
blank. This value works in conjunction with the
high order key value to determine which record
appears first in the subfile.
LIB The library to start the subfile at. The default is
blank. If HIGHKEY(*LIB) is used, the library value
controls which record will appear first in the
subfile. If HIGHKEY(*MBR) is used, the library is
the low order part of the key.
HIGHKEY Which key to use to access the source. The default
is *MBR meaning access occurs by member name as the
high order key. *LIB may be specified meaning
access occurs by the key order of
SCAN The value (string) that you want to scan for. The
default is *NONE. If a value is entered, OPNQRYF is
used to scan the data.
SCANTYPE Which field to scan. The default is *MBRNAME to
scan the member name. *MBRTEXT may also be
specified to scan the member text. The value is
ignored if SCAN(*NONE) is specified.
SRCLSTPLIB The library where the SRCLSTP and SRCLSTL files
exist. The files must have been created by the
CPYSRCLST command. The default is *LIBL.
The member header information is only as current as the last time
CPYSRCLST was used.
