TAA Tools

The Duplicate  TAA  Commands tool  provides for  the use  of a  command
library for the TAA Tools.

See  the  discussion in  the  'Library  List Requirements'  information
member on the HELPTAA menu for why this may be of value.

You  may want  to use  a library  containing a  subset of the  TAA Tool
commands.   This  technique  is also  described  in the  'Library  List
Requirements' option on the HELPTAA menu.

The  following discussion  refers only  to duplicating  all of  the TAA
commands to a separate library.

You must have *ALLOBJ special authority to use DUPTAACMD.

A typical command would be:

           DUPTAACMD    LIB(xxx)

The library  must exist and must not be  one of the TAA Tool libraries.

DUPTAACMD duplicates the following from the TAATOOL library:

  **   Any command definition  (*CMD) objects  are duplicated as  proxy

  **   Any menu (*MENU) objects.

  **   A  few   physical  files  which  provide   externally  described
       formats  to  be  used  for  Data  Structure  definitions  during

If the objects can be duplicated, DUPTAACMD also:

  **   Changes the CRTTAATOOL  command CMDLIB parameter  to default  to
       the named library.   This change occurs in both  TAATOOL and the
       named library.

  **   Changes the  TAACTL data area to reflect the  use of the command
       library.   This allows the next  install of the TAA Productivity
       Tools product to default to use the command library.

If an object of the  same name already exists in the named  library, it
is deleted before duplicating the version from TAATOOL.

Note  that  the  objects  are  duplicated.   The  primary  versions  in
TAATOOL will still exist.

The  companion tool is DLTTAACMD which will  allow you to delete all of
the TAA Tool objects in the  command library.  DLTTAACMD allows you  to
'change your  mind' and have all  TAA commands in the  TAATOOL library.

Command parameters                                    *CMD

   LIB           The  library to contain  the duplicate  objects.  This
                 is known as the 'command library'.




The following TAA Tools must be on your system:

     CHKALLOBJ       Check *ALLOBJ authority
     EDTVAR          Edit variable
     SNDCOMPMSG      Send completion message
     SNDESCMSG       Send escape message
     SNDSTSMSG       Send status message


None, the tool is ready to use.
