The Print  Deleted Record  Numbers command  prints the relative  record
numbers  in a file/member  that are  deleted.   This can be  helpful in
determining the physical makeup of a file.

A typical command would be entered as:

        PRTDLTRCD   FILE(xxxx)

If  there  are  no  deleted  records  in  the  file,  the  command ends
normally with  no spooled output.   The  completion message states  the
condition.   This function  is achieved by  using RTVMBRD  and checking
the  return variable for the number of  deleted records.  If the number
is zero, the file is not read.

If deleted records  exist, the file is  read one record  at a time  and
the  file  feedback area  is  used  to  determine the  relative  record
number read.  Missing numbers are deleted records.

A spooled  output file is created  with the same name  as the data base
file.   The  listing contains  one  line  for each  series  of  deleted
records.  For  example, for each  deleted record (that is  not followed
by  another deleted record)  one line  prints.  If  consecutive deleted
records occur, one line prints with the number found.
