TAA Tools

The  Delay  Release  Spooled  File  command  submits  a  batch  job  to
QSYSNOMAX to  run RLSSPLF after a  delay time of a  specified number of
seconds.   This allows a processing  program to perform functions while
the spooled file is the HELD status.

The spooled file must be in the HELD status.

A typical command would be:

             DLYRLSSPLF    SPLF(xxx) DLY(20)

The named  spooled file in  the current  job would be  released by  the
batch job after a wait of 20 seconds.

If  the spooled file  is not  in the  held status  when the  command is
run,  the  TAA9891 escape  message is  sent.   If  the spooled  file is
non-existent or not in  the held status when  the time delay ends,  the
batch job will fail.

DLYRLSSPLF escape messages you can monitor for

      TAA9891    The spooled file is not in the held status
      TAA9892    Multiple jobs exist for the requested job
      TAA9895    The job could not be found
      CPF3C40    The spooled file does not exist

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