The Convert  Line Description ASYNC  command converts one,  generic, or
all  ASYNC line  descriptions to an  outfile.   This provides  a simple
method  of  processing the  information.   The  outfile name  is always
LINASCP.  The model file is TAACFGUP with a format name of LINASCR.

A typical command would be:


Only the ASYNC Line descriptions  (type ASC) would be converted  to the
LINASCP outfile in QTEMP.

CVTLINASC escape messages you can monitor for

      TAA9893    No ASC line descriptions exist

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

CVTLINASC Command parameters                          *CMD

   LIND          The  line  description  to  be converted.    A  single
                 description,  a generic  name, or  *ALL for  all ASYNC
                 line  descriptions  may   be  entered.     Only   line
                 descriptions of type ASC will be converted.

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

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

   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 any  existing
