TAA Tools

The  Display  Empty  Members  command  displays  or  prints  the  empty
members  for one,  generic,  or all  files  in one  or  more libraries.
Size  information is also supplied to  point out space savings that can
be  achieved  for  members  that  are  no  longer  needed.    The  size
information  includes  the data  and  access  path  size, but  not  the
member description object which can be up to 20K bytes.

The  DSPEMTDBF command displays  data base  files that do  not have any

A typical command would be:

             DSPEMTMBR   FILE(xxx/*ALL)

A listing would  be displayed  of all  the empty members  found in  the
specified library.   All empty data and source members  would appear in
the listing.

Arrival sequence logical files appear with a size of 0.

DSPEMTMBR escape messages you can monitor for

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