TAA Tools

The Create  Dictionary Data  Area command  creates a data  area in  the
library TAADCT for use by the spell checking tools.

In  most  cases, you  will  not  need to  create  a  dictionary or  the
CRTDCTARA  command because the TAADFT  dictionary exists in TAATOOL and
is used  as the  default  for all  spell checking  commands.   See  the
discussion of  the TAADFT dictionary  and other comments in  the member

             DSPTAA    TAADCT

To  understand the  intent of  CRTDCTARA, you must  be familiar  with a
spell checking tool such  as CHKSPELL.  The tool  allows you to name  a
data area  that contains a  list of dictionaries  to be used  for spell

For  example, if you  wanted a unique  dictionary for user  JONES to be
used when JONES used  the CHKSPELL tool, you  would create a data  area
named JONES  in  the library  TAADCT.   If  JONES uses  the US  English
dictionary,  the  TAA400 dictionary,  and  the  JONES1 dictionary,  the
picture would look like:

                      TAADCT Library
                 *                        *
                 *      JONES *DTAARA     *
                 *    *****************   *
                 *    *  US           *   *
                 *    *  TAA400       *   *
                 *    *  JONES1       *   *
                 *    *               *   *
                 *    *****************   *
                 *                        *

When  user JONES  uses the CHKSPELL  command, the  default for CHKSPELL
is to use  the dictionaries in  the data area by  the same name  as the
user in the library TAADCT (if it exists).

To create the data area, you must use the CRTDCTARA command such as:

         CRTDCTARA     DTAARA(xxx)

The  data area  is  always created  in  the library  TAADCT which  must
exist (use the CRTLIB command if it does not).

After  the data  area is created,  use EDTCONARR  to enter  the list of
dictionaries such as:

         EDTCONARR     DTAARA(TAADCT/xxxx)

Up to 8 dictionaries may be named.

The TAA Spell checking commands  support the DCTARA parameter to  allow
you to  use the list  you have created.   You may  name one or  more of
the dictionaries provided by the TAA Tools.

Command parameters                                    *CMD

   DTAARA        The  name of the  data area to  be created.   The data
                 area is created  in library  TAADCT.   If TAADCT  does
                 not exist, you  must create it with the  system CRTLIB




The following TAA Tools must be on your system:

     CONARR          Constant array
     SNDESCMSG       Send escape message
     SNDCOMPMSG      Send completion message


None, the tool is ready to use.
