WRKIPDEV WORK IP DEVICES TAATCPB
The Work IP Devices command provides a work display of the IP devices
and the currently active job (if any). Options exist to 1) Work with
the device description, 2) Work with the job, and 3) Work with
configuration status. Command parameters allow output to a printer
or an outfile.
If an outfile is requested, the model file is TAATCPBP with a format
name of WPDEVR.
The command may be entered without any parameters such as:
All display and printer IP devices would be displayed. This includes
remote writers which do not have a Device description. The sequence
of the display is the IP address. Up to 9999 addresses may be
An IP Address may be named to reduce the number of IP addresses on
the display such as:
Only those IP addresses that are in a range of 192.168.100.1 to
192.168.100.255 would be shown.
The following chart describes some input values and the corresponding
'checked for' address when a set contains less than 3 digits, but is
not 'generic like'.
Input Address Checked for address
'Generic like' addresses are written with a single 0 in the last set
of 3 digits or 0.0 as the last two sets, etc. If a 'generic like'
address is entered, low and high range values will be checked for.
The following chart describes some input values containing 'generic
like' values and the corresponding low and high range addresses
Input Address Low Range address High Range Address
------------- ----------------- ------------------
184.108.40.206 123.101.212.000 220.127.116.11
18.104.22.168 123.101.000.000 22.214.171.124
126.96.36.199 123.000.000.000 188.8.131.52
0.0.0.0 000.000.000.000 255.255.255.255
184.108.40.206 123.000.212.000 123.000.212.255
220.127.116.11 123.000.012.000 123.000.012.255
Note that the 5th example has a 0 in the 2nd set, but since the 3rd
set is not 'generic like', 000 is used as the value for the 2nd set.
The 6th example also shows a similar value.
If an address like 18.104.22.168 is entered, the value is not considered
'generic like' (because the last set is not 0) and a full address of
123.000.000.001 will be checked for.
If a device has an internet address that does not have a full 15
digits (eg 22.214.171.124), the device will be found by entering a
short generic input address (eg 126.96.36.199). The technique used
when the device has an address less than 15 digits is to expand the
actual address to 15 digits based on the first chart and then compare
to the low and high range described in the second chart.
WRKIPDEV escape messages you can monitor for
None. Escape messages from based on functions will be re-sent.
Command parameters *CMD
INTNETADR The internet address of the device to be displayed.
*ALL is the default to display all internet
The address can be a maximum of 15 characters in the
format of an internet address such as
'123.201.145.003' or '188.8.131.52'. A 'generic
like' type of entry is also valid such as
'184.108.40.206' or '220.127.116.11' or '18.104.22.168'.
DEVTYPE The device types to be included. The default is
*BOTH for both display and printer devices.
*DSP may be entered for just display devices.
*PRT may be entered for just printer devices.
OUTQ Whether Output Queues with remote writers that have
IP addresses are to be included. The default is
An entry of xxx/*ALL will check all Output Queues in
a named library. The Output Queue name may be a
specific or generic name.
An entry of *ALL/*ALL will check all Output Queues
on the system.
An entry of *ALL/xxx* will check all Output Queues
on the system for the generic name.
You must be authorized to all Output Queues to be
OUTPUT How to output the results. * is the default to
display the results if the command is entered
If the command is entered in batch or *PRINT is
specified, the results are printed.
*OUTFILE may be entered to write to an outfile.
OUTLIB The library where the output file IPDEVP will be
placed. The default is *LIBL. If the WRKIPDEVP
file does not exist, a specific library must be
OUTMBR The member of the WRKIPDEVP file to be added if it
does not already exist. The default member name is
REPLACE A *YES/*NO value for whether the member should be
cleared before writing records into it.
*YES is the default to clear the member before
*NO may be specified to add records to an existing
Up to 9999 devices may be displayed.

TAATCPBC2 is a sub program called by TAATCPBR to handle the options
such as WRKDEVD.
TAATCPBC3 is a sub program called by TAATCPBR if the API returns less
than 15 characters for the IP address. It converts a value such as
22.214.171.124 to 132.020.251.201. This allows a comparison for the
low and high range of the full 15 characters.
TAATCPBC4 is a sub program called by TAATCPBR for OUTQ Remote writers
that have an IP address without a Device. It calls TAATCPBR4 to
write the output queues to a temporary work file that is read by
