The Remove Generic Source command removes generic source members from
a single file, standard source files, all source files, or QATTxxx
source files in a library. The command can help simplify cleanup
A typical command would be:
RMVGENSRC GENNAME(ABC) FROMSRCF(LIBA/*STD)
All generic ABC members would be removed from the standard source
files (such as QCLSRC, QRPGSRC, etc) found in library LIBA.
A message is sent for each member removed and a summary message at
If a special value (such as *LIBL) is used for the library name, the
first file found in a library determines the library used by all
Command parameters *CMD
GENNAME The generic name of the member to be removed. If
the value does not contain an * at the end, generic
is assumed. Note that you cannot remove an
individual member (Use RVMM directly).
SRCFILE The source file to have members removed from. A
specific source file may be named or the special
values *ALL, *STD, *SRC1, *SRC2, *SRC3, *QATT or
*QATT2. The library qualifier defaults to *LIBL.
*CURLIB may be specified.
*ALL may be entered to mean all source files in the
*STD may be specified to mean the only files
returned must match those described by the RTVSRCTYP
TAA Tool. This list includes the standard file
names associated with source types described in
system help text. See the discussion with
*SRC1, *SRC2, and *SRC3 mean that a data area must
exist on the library list by the corresponding names
of SRCLST1, SRCLST2, and SRCLST3. These data areas
must contain the name of the source files to be
checked. Only source files that exist and match one
of those found in the data area will be checked.
See the discussion with the CRTSRCFLST tool.
*QATT or *QATT2 may be specified to mean the only
files returned must match those described in the
RTVQATTF TAA Tool. This is either a short or long
list of QATTxxx source file names. Use the PRTQATTF
command for a list of either.
Using *QATT requires that you know the Tool ID to
specify as the generic name. The Tool ID can be
determined using DSPTAA and the name in the upper
right hand corner of the first page. For example,
the Tool ID for ADDDAT is TAADATA. The *QATT values
only work against normal source files and not the
There is a limit of 999 source files in a library.
The following TAA Tools must be on your system:
CHKGENERC Check generic
EDTVAR Edit variable
RTVLIBSRCF Retrieve library source files
SNDCOMPMSG Send completion message
SNDESCMSG Send escape message
