TAA Tools

The Convert Image  Catalog command converts  the image catalogs  to the
IMGCLGP outfile  in a named library.  Either  optical, virtual tape, or
all  image catalogs  may be  converted.   The QVOIRCLG  API is  used to
retrieve the  entries.   The model outfile  is TAACLGBP  with a  format
name of IMGCLGR.

Specifying  *OPTICAL  provides  basic   information  about  an  optical
catalog.    A  different tool  (CVTIMGCLG2)  will  provide  more detail

A typical command would be:

             CVTIMGCLG      OUTLIB(QTEMP)

All image  catalogs  would be  converted  to  the IMGCLGEP  outfile  in
QTEMP.  A type of *OPTICAL or *VRTTAP may be requested.

If an  image catalog  for a virtual  tape is not  in a  'ready' status,
the CLVRTD  (Virtual device) and CLVRTS  (Virtual device status) output
fields will be blank.

CVTIMGCLGE escape messages you can monitor for

      TAA9891    No image catalogs exist

Escape messages from based on functions will be re-sent.

Command parameters                                    *CMD

   IMGTYPE       The image catalog type.

                 *ALL is the default for all types.

                 *OPTICAL  may  be  specified  for  all  optical  image

                 *VRTTAP may  be specified for  all virtual  tape image

   OUTLIB        The  library  in   which  the  IMGCLGP  file  will  be
                 placed.   The default  is *LIBL.   If the IMGCLGP file
                 does not already  exist, a library must  be specified.

   OUTMBR        The member  of the  IMGCLGP file to  be used.   If the
                 member  does not exist,  it is added.   The default is

   REPLACE       A *YES/*NO  value for  whether  the member  should  be
                 cleared before writing  records into it.   The default
                 is *YES.

                 *NO  may  be  specified  to  add  records to  existing
