DEV             DEVICE STATUS                          TAACFGD

The Device  Status command  is a  shorthand to  the WRKCFGSTS  command.
It provides device status in a simple keystroke manner.

A typical command would be:

        DEV         PRT

This  would be  a request  for all  devices that  begin with  PRT (note
that no * is needed).  The WRKCFGSTS display would be shown.

The  command works well for generically  named devices.  If devices are
not generically named, a special  value may be used as is  supported by
WRKCFGSTS.  For example:

        DEV         *PRT

This will display all printer devices.

The  WRKCFGSTS  CFGTYPE parameter  is  automatically  *DEV.   For  this
reason,  certain  special  values  found  for  the  CFGD  parameter  on
WRKCFGSTS are not supported on DEV.

Command parameters                                    *CMD

   CFGD          A name  without  an *  may  be  entered to  request  a
                 generic name (It  is also valid to enter an  * such as
                 PRT*).    If  devices are  generically  named  by auto
                 config, names  such as  TAP, DKT  etc.   can be  used.
                 The  following  special  values   are  also  supported
                 *ALL,  *CMN,   *DKT,  *TAP  *DSP,   *LCLDSP,  *RMTDSP,
                 *VRTDSP, *PRT, *LCLPRT, *RMTPRT, and *VRTPRT.

   OUTPUT        *  is  the default  and has  the  same meaning  as the
                 OUTPUT parameter on WRKCFGSTS.
