SCNTAATOOL SCAN ALL TAA SOURCE FILES TAATOLD
***** Note. SCNTAATOOL provides a similar function as FNDSTRPDM.
SCNTAATOOL uses the output from the TAA tool SCNSRC which differs
from FNDSTRPDM. You may prefer to use FNDSTRPDM instead.
The SCNTAATOOL command provides a simple method of scanning all or
some source files in TAATOOL or any other library. Only the source
file names used by the TAA tools in TAATOOL are scanned. These
To scan the library TAATOOL for all use of the argument EDTVAR you
The SCNTAATOOL command submits a job to batch to perform the scan.
The SCNTAATOOL command uses the SCNSRC command from TAATOOL to scan
each source file. A listing is printed for each TAATOOL source file
found in the specified library.
An option on the command exists to specify the source types that you
want to scan against. For example, you could have specified:
SCNTAATOOL ARGUMENT(EDTVAR) TYPE(*CL *RPG)
This would have caused a scan against only the files QATTCL and
Command parameters *CMD
ARGUMENT Up to a 20 character value to be scanned for. You
may need to surround the value in quotes and enter
in upper case depending on the value. For typical
names (e.g. EDTVAR), the value may be entered in
lower case without quotes. Trailing blanks will be
trimmed off the argument.
LIB The library name which contains the source files to
be scanned. Only the source file names used by the
TAA tools in TAATOOL are scanned. The default is
JOBD The qualified job description to be used to submit
the job to batch. The default is *USRPRF which
means the JOBD from the user profile is used. If
the SCNTAATOOL command is executed in batch, this
parameter is ignored.
TYPE The source type that you want to scan. The default
is *ALL, meaning all source files. You may specify
one or more of a list of source types. For types
such as *DDS, you may specify *DDS, *PF, *LF etc.
If more than one request exists for the same file,
only one scan will occur. The scan for a type such
as *PF causes a scan of the entire QATTDDS file and
not just the *PF types.
The following are the list of source types and the
TRANSLATE A *YES/*NO option that defaults to *NO. *YES causes
the source statement to be translated to upper case
before scanning for the argument.
PRTFOLSTM A *YES/*NO option that defaults to *NO. *YES means
that if a hit is found on a statement, the next
statement will be printed whether it has a hit or
The purpose of the *YES option is for a situation
such as when you are scanning for a command name and
want to determine whether a keyword has been used.
If the command is continued to a second source
statement, the keyword you may want to look for
could be on the second line. After the spooled file
is output, you can use DSPSPLF to scan for the
The following TAA Tools must be on your system:
EXTLST Extract list
SCNSRC Scan a source file
SNDCOMPMSG Send completion message
SNDESCMSG Send escape message
None, the tool is ready to use.

The CPP is TAATOLDC which submits the program TAATOLDC2 to batch if the
request is entered interactively.
