FIND            FIND OBJECT                       TAAOBJA

The FIND command  is an ease of  use front end for the  WRKOBJ command.
The normal use is as follows:

        FIND    ABC

The  command places  an *  on the  value entered  (i.e.   ABC*)  and by
default  uses the current library if it  exists or the first library on
the users  library list.   It  then requests  all object  types.   This
provides  a display of  all objects  beginning with  ABC in  the user's
normally preferred library.

The WRKOBJ command executed would be:

        WRKOBJ     OBJ(xxxx/ABC*) OBJTYPE(*ALL)

This  makes  it  easy to  see  what  objects exist  that  begin  with a
generic name.

The FIND  command  has  two advantages  over  the use  of  the  typical
WRKOBJ command:

  **   Less keystrokes

  **   Faster  response  than  an  unqualified  WRKOBJ  command.    The
       WRKOBJ command specified as:

           WRKOBJ    OBJ(XXX*) OBJTYPE(*ALL)

       searches all  of the libraries on the  library list.  The normal
       use of FIND  is to  search only a  single library.   To  achieve
       the same speed, you must specify:


Command parameters                                    *CMD

   NAME          The name  you want  to search  for.  If  less than  10
                 characters  are  entered,  a  generic search  will  be
                 used.   You  need not enter  an '*'  (the program will
                 add it for  you if it has  not been specified).   *ALL
                 may also  be entered.   This would be useful  when you
                 are  looking  for all  of  a seldom  used  object type
                 (e.g.  message files) in a particular library.

   LIB           The special value  or library  name that  you want  to
                 search.   The  default  is  *DFT meaning  the  current
                 library if  it exists.  If  no current library exists,
                 the first library on the  user portion of the  library
                 list is  searched.   A  specific library  may be  also
                 entered.   The  special value  *CUR requests  only the
                 current  library.  An  * or *FIRST  requests the first
                 library on  the  user  portion of  the  library  list.
                 *USRLIBL,  *LIBL,   *ALL,  or  *ALLUSR   may  also  be

   OBJTYPE       The  object type to  be searched for.   The default is
                 *ALL.    The  same  values  may  be  used  as  can  be
                 specified on WRKOBJ.
