The Display  Tape Label  command displays  or prints basic  information
about a  tape label including the  date the first file  was written and
the  first expiration date.  DSPTAPLBL  is very efficient in displaying
information from a  virtual tape.   The command can  be very slow  when
certain tape devices are used.

A typical command would be:

             DSPTAPLBL    DEV(xxx)

The information from the tape (or virtual tape) would be displayed.

DSPTAPLBL escape messages you can monitor for

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

Command parameters                                    *CMD

   DEV           The  name of  the device  where the  tape  (or virtual
                 tape) exists.

   VOL           The volume ID to retrieve.

                 *MOUNTED is the default.

                 A  specific volume ID  may be entered  in 6 characters
                 or less.

   OUTPUT        How to  output  the results.    *  is the  default  to
                 display the  spooled file  if the  command is  entered
                 interactively.   The spooled file  is deleted after it
                 is displayed.

                 If the  command  is  entered in  batch  or  *PRINT  is
                 specified, the  spooled file  is output and  retained.
