TAA Tools

The Create  Source File List  command creates a  data area intended  to
contain  your standard source  file names  for processing  by different
TAA  Tools.  Rather than processing all  source files in a library, you
can use a  specified subset list.   After creating  the data area,  use
the  TAA command  EDTCONARR to  enter a  list of  your  standard source
files.  Three different data areas can be defined.

A typical command would be:

             CRTSRCFLST    LIB(xxx) TYPE(*SRC1)

This  would create  a  data area  named SRCLST1  in the  named library.
The owner  of the file  has authority  to change  the data  area.   The
*PUBLIC is given *USE authority.

You would then use EDTCONARR to edit the data area:

             EDTCONARR     DTAARA(SRCLST1)

and enter your required source file names.

There is  no checking done to  see if the  file names are valid  or the
files exist  in a specific library.   If you name a  file that does not
exist, no error  will occur,  but the  file you  may want  will not  be
processed.  If  you name a  file that does exist,  but you do  not want
in the list, excess processing will occur.

The  TAA  Tools that  use  the  list  of source  file  names  do so  to
minimize   what  source   files  should   be  processed.     Therefore,
describing your  standard  source file  (or  files) helps  improve  the
performance of several TAA commands and avoids looking at clutter.

CRTSRCFLST escape messages you can monitor for

      TAA9893    The data area already exists.

Escape messages from system commands will be re-sent.

Command parameters                                    *CMD

   LIB           The library to contain the data area.

   TYPE          The special  value for  the name of  the data  area to
                 be  created.  Three  different data areas  may be used
                 depending on your  needs.   *SRC1 is  the default  and
                 creates  the   SRCLST1  data  area.     *SRC2  creates
                 SRCLST2.  *SRC3 creates SRCLST3.




The following TAA Tools must be on your system:

     CHKOBJ2         Check object 2
     CHKOBJ3         Check object 3
     CONARR          Constant array
     SNDCOMPMSG      Send completion message
     SNDESCMSG       Send escape message


None, the tool is ready to use.
