TAA Tools

The Display Monitor  Message command displays the  monitorable messages
for a system command.

A typical command would be:


A subfile  would be displayed  of the monitorable messages  sent by the
command.   Both the Message ID and  the first level text are displayed.
A detail  display is available  to display  the second level  text.   A
command key  allows access to the Display  Message Description command.
The  format of the message  text is similar to  that which is displayed
for system messages by DSPMSGD.

The companion tool  is DSPMSGUSE which displays  the commands that  use
the same monitorable message.

Which commands are supported

The information for  the messages is extracted  from system information
on  the  system.    This  information  contains  both system  and  some
licensed product commands.

The TAA Productivity Tool commands are  not included.  Most of the  TAA
Productivity Tool commands follow the convention of:

  **   CPF9898  is sent  if  an  interface  error occurred  such  as  a
       parameter can  only be *YES or  *NO and *XX is passed  or if the
       message  is not  considered to  be one  a program would  want to
       monitor for.   The  message data (the  text of  the message)  is
       coded in the program.

  **   A  specific message is  sent in  the range  TAA9881-TAA9898 from
       the  TAAMSGF  in TAATOOL  if  the  message is  considered  to be
       monitorable.  The message IDs  are unique within a program,  but
       the  same message  ID may  be  re-used in  a different  program.
       The message  data is coded in the program.   The message IDs are
       described in the tool documentation  and are often described  in
       the command help text.

A few  tools such as  PMTOPR or DYNMNU  send specific messages.   These
are described in the tool documentation.

Command parameters                                    *CMD

   CMD           The command to display the messages for.

                 The  special value *ALL  should be  used to  see those
                 messages  which are  generic and  are not specifically
                 included with each command (such as CPF0001).
