TAA Tools

The  Print  Blank  Source Text  command  prints  a  listing  of  source
members  that have a  blank member description.   All source  files are
checked  in one or more libraries.   The command is useful for cleaning
up source files to ensure that a text description exists.

A typical command would be:


This would print  a listing with  one line for  each source file  found
in all libraries  on the user portion of the library  list.  A separate
line  would follow the  file line for  each member that did  not have a
text description.

An option exists to only print  lines for members that do not have  any

You must  have *USE authority to  the TAACVTLIBD authorization  list to
use the special LIB values of *ALL or *ALLUSR.

Additional  parameters exist to allow  you to specify  the library type
and a list of libraries to omit.

Omitting the TAATOOL library

If you  use  LIB(*ALLUSR) or  have  TAATOOL  on the  library  list  and
specify LIB(*USRLIBL),  you may find  a few  temporary members that  do
not  have a  text description.   You  can omit  the TAATOOL  library by
specifying it in the OMITLIB parameter.


The  OMITLIB  data  area in  TAASECURE  is  used in  a  prompt override
program  to  fill  in  the  OMITLIB  parameter.     The  data  area  is
initialized  to  TAATOOL when  the  TAA  Productivity  Tools are  first

You  may   add  other  libraries  that  you  want  to  bypass  in  your
installation.  For example, if  you have other products on your  system
that should not be included, you could add them to the list.

An *ALLOBJ special authority user could enter the command:


The list of libraries can then be maintained.

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

Command parameters                                    *CMD

   LIB           The  library to  be considered.   Up  to 40  libraries
                 may  be   entered  including  generic  library  names.
                 Special  values  *LIBL,  *USRLIBL,  *CURLIB,  *ALLUSR,
                 *IBM, or  *ALL may  be entered.   You  must have  *USE
                 authority  to  the  TAACVTLIBD authorization  list  to
                 use *ALLUSR or *ALL.

   LIBTYPE       The  type of libraries  to be processed.   *ALL is the
                 default.   Either *PROD  or  *TEST may  be entered  to
                 process  only  those   libraries  with  the  specified
                 attribute   (the  TYPE   parameter  is   specified  on

   PRTTYPE       A *YES/*NO parameter for  whether to print all  source
                 files or  not.  *YES is  the default which  will print
                 one  line  for each  source  file whether  it  has any
                 members that do not have any text descriptions.

                 *NO may  be  specified to  only  print a  line  for  a
                 member that does  not have a  text description.   If a
                 source  file  has no  members  or  no members  without
                 text descriptions, no information is provided.

   OMITLIB       A  list  of up  to 45  libraries to  be omitted.   The
                 default is  *NONE.  A  prompt override program  exists
                 so that  the OMITLIB data  area in TAASECURE  is used.
                 See  the previous discussion for how  to use this data

                 If you are processing  *ALLUSR or *USRLIBL, you  would
                 normally want to omit the TAATOOL library.


You must  have *USE authority to  the TAACVTLIBD authorization  list to
use the special LIB values of *ALL or *ALLUSR.
