The  Convert  Program  Attributes 2  command  converts  program  object
(*PGM)  information to an  outfile with one  record per program.   This
includes  module information for up to  100 modules which is written as
an array.  This allows  simple processing of programs that are  made up
of multiple  modules.  The  same information as available  with CVTPGMA
plus the module information is output by CVTPGMA2.

The model file is TAAPGOCP with a format name of PGMRCD.

A typical command would be:

             CVTPGMA2  PGM(xxx/*ALL) PGMTYPE(*ILE)

All  ILE  programs in  the  specified library  would be  found  and one
record would be written  for each to the PGMATRP2  file in QTEMP.   The
first  part of  the record  has  standard information  for any  program
including OPM  programs.  The PGARR  field contains module information.


The PGARR  field  contains  100  elements of  200  bytes  each.    Each
element has information  for one module.   The element may be  moved to
a data structure with the following definition:

     MOD        1   10   Module name
     MODLIB    11   20   Module library
     MODATR    21   30   Module attribute
     MODSFR    31   40   Source file
     MODSFL    41   50   Source library
     MODSFM    51   60   Source member
     MODOWN    61   70   Owner
     MODCRD    71   77   Create date
     MODCRT    78   83   Create time
     MODRLS    84   89   Release created on
     MODRL2    90   95   Release created for
     MODSCD    96  102   Last source change date
     MODSCT   103  108   Last source change time
     MODTXT   109  158   Text description
     MODCSD   109  163   CCSID
     MODDBG   164  167   Debug data
     MODOPL   168  172   Optimization level
              173  200   Reserved

If  a  program  has   less  than  100  modules,  the  remaining  module
information  is  blank.   OPM  programs  do  not have  modules  and all
module information is blank.

The RPGLE  code for the  TAAPGOCR program  contains the data  structure
PGARRDS with  the D specs  that define an  element.  The source  can be
copied to a source file with the following command:

             CPYTAA    TAAARCMBR(TAAPGOCR) TOSRCF(xxx/yyy)

CVTPGMA2 escape messages you can monitor for

      TAA9891    No programs exist for the program type

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

CVTPGMA2 Command parameters                           *CMD

   PGM           The  qualified name  of  the program  whose attributes
                 and modules should  be converted.   A generic name  or
                 *ALL may be specified.

                 The  library value  defaults to  *LIBL.   The  library
                 name can  be a specific library  or the special values
                 *USRLIBL, *CURLIB, *ALL or *ALLUSR.

   PGMTYPE       The type of program to convert information for.

                 *ILE is the default for ILE programs.

                 *OPM may be specified for OPM programs.

                 *ALL may be specified for both types of programs.

   OUTLIB        The  library  in  which  the  file  PGMATRP2  will  be
                 placed.  The default  is *LIBL.  If the  PGMATRP2 file
                 does not  already exist, a library  must be specified.

   OUTMBR        The  member of the  PGMATRP2 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 an  existing


Only information from the first 100 modules is created.

Because the  outfile format exceeds 9,999  bytes, the outfile  may only
be read  by a program which  allows a large record  length.  Use DSPFMT
TAAPGOCP for the exact length.
