TAA Tools

The Convert  Edit Descriptions command  converts the  Edit Descriptions
(5-9)  to a  data  base file.    This can  be  used to  allow the  Edit
Descriptions  to  be transported  to another  system and  entered using
the  RPLEDTD tool.    All  Edit  Descriptions are  output  by  CVTEDTD.
RPLEDTD allows replacing one or all.

The file  output is  EDTDP which uses  a model file  of TAASYTGP  and a
format name of EDTCDER.

A typical command would be:

             CVTEDTD      OUTLIB(xxx)

The  Edit Descriptions  would  be converted  to the  EDTDP file  in the
named library.   The default member  is EDTDP.   If the member  already
exists, it is cleared.

If the  library containing  EDTDP is  restored on  another system,  you
can replace the existing Edit Descriptions with:

             RPLEDTD       LIB(xxx)

Use of CVTEDTD/RPLEDTD on the same system

Some   users  may  want  to   capture  a  good  version   of  the  Edit
Descriptions for a  possible later  use if the  entries become  damaged
or you  need to  reset the  values.   The use  of CVTEDTD  to save  the
existing  definitions will  allow  you to  use  RPLEDTD if  it  is ever

CVTEDTD escape messages you can monitor for

None.  Escape messages from based on functions will be re-sent.

Command parameters                                    *CMD

   OUTLIB        The  library to contain  the EDTDP file.   The default
                 is *LIBL  meaning the  file  already exists.   If  the
                 file  does  not  exist,  a specific  library  must  be

                 The  model  file is  TAASYTGP  with a  format  name of

   OUTMBR        The  member to  be  used  in  the  EDTDP  file.    The
                 default  is  EDTDP.    If the  member  exists,  it  is
                 cleared first.


Because a  spooled file is read, only the  upper and lower case English
versions are supported.
