The  PRTSAVSTS command  is  intended  to be  run  following a  save  of
multiple  libraries.   One to 300  libraries or  *ALL libraries  may be
specified.    One  line  per  library  is  output  which  describes the
library name, save date, save  command and the volumes the  library was
saved on.   If your SAVLIB commands are executed  from CL programs, the
PRTSAVSTS  command could be included  in the program  with the same set
of libraries as specified on the SAVLIB command.

The printed  output should  be kept  offline so  that if  a restore  is
necessary,  an  external  description  exists of  what  libraries  were
saved and what volumes were used.

If  a  SAVLIB *NONSYS  occurred, a  total  restore can  occur  with the
corresponding RSTLIB  *NONSYS.    If  your  backup  strategy  does  not
utilize SAVLIB  *NONSYS  or you  will be  restoring with  other than  a
RSTLIB *NONSYS, then  you can only specify one  library for each use of
the  RSTLIB  command.   The  output  of  the PRTSAVSTS  command  can be
useful in determining  which libraries exist  and which media to  mount
to perform  the restore (See also  the TAA Tool RSTALLCHG  which avoids
this restriction).

Assume  multiple libraries  are saved  by a  single SAVLIB  command and
result in output of  volumes A, B and  C.  If  the library you want  to
restore is  on volume B,  you need  only mount volume  B and  issue the
RSTLIB  command.  The  Restore command will  search the volume  for the
desired  library.    The  PRTSAVSTS  command  helps  you  identify  the
libraries and the volumes to use.

Command parameters                                    *CMD

   LIBS          Enter 1  -  300 library  names (or  generic names)  or
                 the  special value *ALL.   You  must be  authorized to
                 the TAADSPADP authorization list to specify *ALL.

   PRTFILE       The  qualified name  of the  printer file  to be used.
                 The default  is QPRINT  in  *LIBL.   The spooled  file
                 name is always QPRINT.




The following TAA Tools must be on your system:

      CHKGENERC     Check generic
      DSPOBJDA      DSPOBJD with adopt (part of DSPADP tool)
      RTVSYSVAL3    Retrieve system value 3
      SNDCOMPMSG    Send completion message
      SNDESCMSG     Send escape message
      SNDDIAGMSG    Send diagnostic message


The  tool is  ready to  use, but  the user  must be  authorized  to the
TAADSPADP authorization list.  For example,
