TAA Tools

The  Print Non-Observable  Programs  command prints  a  listing of  the
programs that  have had their observability removed.   A library or all
user libraries may be named.

A typical command would be:

            PRTNONOBS   LIB(ABC)

PRTNONOBS  is a slow running command  and should be submitted to batch.

Checking for  non-observable programs is  of value  to do  periodically
to assist  you in determining if you  still have the source  to be able
to re-create the program objects if needed.

If  a  program is  found which  in  non-observable, the  source member,
library, and file  are printed along  with a status  field for  whether
the member or file still exists.

If you remove  your source members, but  retain the source in  a Source
Archive  (TAA Tool  SRCARC),  a parameter  exists to  name  the archive
library.  If the source member does  not exist in the source file,  the
archive will be checked.

The TAATOOL,  TAASECURE, and TAAUPD  libraries are  implicitly bypassed
as they  are created with non-observable programs.   A parameter exists
to  allow you to name  specific libraries that may  also be bypassed if
you know they contain non-observable programs.

DSPOBJD is used to create  an outfile and an API (QCLRPGMI) is  used to
retrieve the program information.

Security considerations

If *ALLUSR is requested, the user must have *ALLOBJ authority.

No checking  is done by  the tool for  a specific library  or *USRLIBL.
Consequently, the system security rules apply:

  **   If  the user is  not authorized to  a library,  the command will
       be rejected.

  **   If the user is authorized to  the library, but not to a  program
       within the  library, the  program is  bypassed when the  outfile
       is created.  Therefore, it will not be tested.

Command parameters                                    *CMD

   LIB           The  library  name  to  search.    The special  values
                 *CURLIB, *USRLIBL, or  *ALLUSR may be  specified.   If
                 *ALLUSR is specified,  the same rules are  followed as
                 per  a SAVLIB  LIB(*ALLUSR).   Therefore, if  you have
                 programs  in libraries  that start with  Q, you should
                 specifically name them.

   OMITLIBS      Up to  40  library names  that may  be  omitted.   Use
                 this   parameter  if   you  know   you  have   certain
                 libraries  that  contain  non-observable  programs and
                 you either  have  the source  separately  or it  is  a
                 package where only object is shipped.

                 The default  is *NONE.   You may  only specify  a list
                 of libraries if you use *USRLIBL or *ALLUSR.

   SRCARCLIB     The  Source  Archive  Library  name  if  the TAA  Tool
                 SRCARC is used  to archive  the source.   The  default
                 is *NONE.

                 If the  source member (or  file) does not  exist based
                 on  the  information stored  with  the  object and  an
                 archive  library is specified,  the member information
                 is accessed from  the source archive.   If it  exists,
                 a unique  note is printed in the  source status field.




The following TAA Tools must be on your system:

     ALCTMPMBR    Allocate temporary member
     EXTLST       Extract list
     RPGSTSDS     RPG Status Data Structure
     RTVPGMA      Retrieve program attributes
     RTVSYSVAL3   Retrieve system value 3
     SNDCOMPMSG   Send completion message
     SNDESCMSG    Send escape message
     SNDSTSMSG    Send status message
     SRCARC       Source archive


None, the tool is ready to use.
