TAA Tools

The PRTMNYSRCF  command  allows you  to print  multiple source  members
from one  or more source  files.  The  PRTSRCF command from  TAATOOL is
used  to print the output so that the width  of the print line is 8 1/2

A typical command would look as follows:

                         (PAY105 *RPG))

The command would  print 4 members  from three different source  files.
Since  the  PRTSRCF command  sends  out  a  status message  during  the
printing  of the member,  these messages are automatically  sent to the
display.    This  provides  feedback  for  the  end  user   during  the
operation of the command.

If an error occurs  during processing (e.g.  the  member name cannot be
found),  a diagnostic message  is sent  and the command  will continue.
This will normally allow you to  see the cause of the problem  although
in some  cases  the low  level messages  must  be reviewed.   When  all
members  have been processed,  an escape  message will be  sent stating
the number of members printed and the number not printed.

Because  PRTMNYSRCF  can  be  a  long  running  command,  it  should be
submitted to  batch.   The  cost to  the system  to process  separately
entered   interactive  functions,   exceeds  the   cost  of   a  single

Command parameters                                    *CMD

   LIST          This is a double entry of:

        MEMBER        The member to be listed.

        SRCF          A  source file  name or  the special  values *CL,
                      *RPG  etc.    to  indicate  the  standard  system
                      supplied  source   files  names  of   QCLSRC  and
                      QRPGSRC etc.

   OUTQ          The output queue to be used.  The default is *JOB.

   FROMLIB       The   library  containing  the  source   files.    The
                 default is *LIBL.

   CHGBARS       If change bars  are desired,  this is a  6 digit  date
                 field in  job format to  use for a  comparison against
                 the source  statement change date.  A  change bar will
                 print  if the parameter date is  less than or equal to
                 the source statement date.

   CHGBARCHAR    The change  bar  character  that will  be  printed  if
                 change bars are requested.  An '*' is the default.
