The Convert  Line  Description PPP  (Point to  Point) command  converts
one,  generic,  or all  PPP  line  descriptions to  an  outfile.   This
provides  a simple method  of processing the  information.  The outfile
name is  always LINPPPP.   The  model file  is TAACFGRP  with a  format
name of LINPPPR.

A typical command would be:


Only the  PPP Line  descriptions (type PPP)  would be converted  to the
LINPPPP outfile in QTEMP.

CVTLINPPP escape messages you can monitor for

      TAA9893    No ASC line descriptions exist

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

CVTLINPPP Command parameters                          *CMD

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

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

   OUTMBR        The  member of  the  LINPPPP file  to  be used.    The
                 default is  LINPPPP.  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
