TAA Tools

The Convert System  Reply List command  converts the System  Reply List
entries  to a data  base file.   This  can be used  to allow  the Reply
List  entries to  be transported  to another  system and  entered using
the RPLRPYLE tool.

The file output is  RPYLSTP which uses a  model file of TAAMSIDP and  a
format name of RPYLSTR.

A typical command would be:

             CVTRPYLE     OUTLIB(xxx)

The System  Reply List entries would  be converted to  the RPYLSTP file
in  the named library.  The  default member is RPYLSTP.   If the member
already exists, it is cleared.

If the library  containing RPYLSTP is restored  on another system,  you
can replace the existing Reply List with:

             RPLRPYLE      LIB(xxx)

Use of CVTRPYLE/RPLRPYLE on the same system

Some  users may  want  to capture  a  good version  of  the Reply  List
entries for  a possible later use if the  entries become damaged or you
need to reset the  values.  The  use of CVTRPYLE  to save the  existing
definitions will allow you to use RPLRPYLE if it is ever needed.

CVTRPYLE escape messages you can monitor for

None.  Escape messages from based on functions will be re-sent.

Command parameters                                    *CMD

   OUTLIB        The  library  to  contain  the   RPYLSTP  file.    The
                 default  is  *LIBL meaning  the  file already  exists.
                 If  the file does  not exist, a  specific library must
                 be used.

                 The model  file  is TAAMSIDP  with  a format  name  of

   OUTMBR        The  member to  be  used  in the  RPYLSTP  file.   The
                 default  is  RPYLSTP.   If  the member  exists,  it is
                 cleared first.

                 *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 CMPRPYLE command.


Because a spooled  file is  read, only  the upper case  and lower  case
English versions are supported.


The following TAA Tools must be on your system:

     DUPFILFMT       Duplicate file format
     EDTVAR          Edit variable
     EXTVAL          Extract value
     RTVSYSVAL3      Retrieve system value 3
     SNDCOMPMSG      Send completion message
     SNDESCMSG       Send escape message
     SNDSTSMSG       Send status message


None, the tool is ready to use.

TAAMSIDC2 is called by TAAMSIDR to use EXTVAL on Compare Data.
