TAA Tools

The  Convert  Registration   Information  command  converts   the  data
displayed by  WRKREGINF to an outfile.  One  record is written for each
combination  of  exit point  and  program that  is  registered.   If no
programs are  registered for  an exit  point,  a record  will still  be
written    containing    the    exit    point   information.        The
QusRetrieveExitInformation API is used to extract the information.

The model  file is TAAREGAP with a format  of REGINFR.  You can display
the fields with DSPFMT TAAREGAP.

When the output  file is created,  it is specified  as ALWUPD(*NO)  and
ALWDLT(*NO).  You cannot  change a record or delete a record.   You can
clear the  member or use the default  REPLACE(*YES) to replace the data
in an existing member.

A typical command would be:

             CVTREGINF       OUTLIB(QTEMP)

A record  would  be written  to  the REGINFP  file  in QTEMP  with  one
record for each possible exit point and registered programs.


The model file is TAAREGAP with a format name of REGINFR.

All fields begin with RI with the following suffix:

      RIExxx  =  Fields to describe an exit point.
      RIPxxx  =  Fields to describe an exit point program.

In the text descriptions of the fields, the following is used

      EPT  =  Exit point
      EPR  =  Exit program
      PEP  =  Preprocessing exit program

CVTREGINF escape messages you can monitor for

      TAA9891    No entries exist to convert.  Check criteria.

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

Command parameters                                    *CMD

   EXITPNT       The name of the exit point to be converted.

                 *REGISTERED is the  default to convert  all registered
                 exit points.   Registered exit points  are exit points
                 that were added to the registration facility.

                 *UNREGISTERED   may  be   specified  to   convert  all
                 unregistered exit  points.   Unregistered exit  points
                 are exit  points that are created  by the registration
                 facility  in  the absence  of  the exit  point  at the
                 time the exit point was added.

                 *ALL   may   be   used   for   both   registered   and
                 unregistered exit points.

                 A specific exit  point or generic exit  point name may
                 be entered.

   FORMAT        The  format name of  the exit  point to convert.   The
                 format name is  specified on  the ADDEXITPGM  command.

                 *ALL is the default for all formats.

                 A specific or generic format may be entered.

   PGMNBR        The  program   number  that   was  specified  on   the
                 ADDEXITPGM command.

                 *ALL  is  the  default for  all  program  numbers.   A
                 number between 1 and 2147483647 may be specified.

   PGMDTA        A  two  part  entry  for  the  program  data  that was
                 specified on the ADDEXITPGM command.

                 The default  is  *NONE which  means the  program  data
                 will not be used to make a selection.

                 The first  part is the  length of the data  to compare
                 to.   The comparison  begins at byte 1  for the length
                 you specify which can be up to 255 bytes.

                 *CALC may  be entered  to calculate  the length  based
                 on the  number or  characters entered into  the second

                 The   second  part  is  the   program  data  that  was
                 specified on the ADDEXITPGM command.

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

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

                 *DATE  may  be  specified  to  output  a  member  name
                 Mcyymmdd.   This allows a unique member  for each date
                 converted  and different members can  be compared with
                 the CMPREGINF command.

   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
