TAA Tools

The Convert Image  Catalog Entries command  converts the entries  for a
specific  Virtual  Tape image  catalog  to the  IMGCLGEP  outfile in  a
named  library.   The  QVOIRCLD API  is used  to retrieve  the entries.
The model  outfile is TAACLGAP  with a  format name of  IMGCLGER.   See
the CVTIMGCLG2 command for converting an Optical Image Catalog.

A typical command would be:


The  image  catalog  entries  for   the  ABC  image  catalog  would  be
converted to the IMGCLGEP outfile in QTEMP.

CVTIMGCLGE escape messages you can monitor for

      TAA9891    The image catalog does not exist
      TAA9892    The library qualifier must be *LIBL or QUSRSYS
      TAA9893    No entries exist

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

Command parameters                                    *CMD

   IMGCLG        The  qualified name  of the  image catalog  to convert
                 entries for.  The library value defaults to *LIBL.

                 Image catalogs only  exist in  QUSRSYS.   An entry  of
                 *LIBL  will normally  find  an  image catalog  because
                 QUSRSYS  is  part  of system  portion  of  the library
                 list as shipped by the system.

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

   OUTMBR        The  member of the  IMGCLGEP 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
