TAA Tools

The Release  All Writers command  releases all writers  using generated
RLSWTR  system commands.    A single  writer,  a generic  name,  or all
writers  may be released.  An  ACTION parameter allows either *CHECK or
*RELEASE.  RLSALLWTR  can assist  when bringing the  system up after  a
full or partial  shutdown.  You must have  *JOBCTL special authority to
use RLSALLWTR.  See the companion tool HLDALLWTR.

A typical command would be:


All writers  on the system would be released.   A spooled file would be
displayed with the results.

RLSALLWTR escape messages you can monitor for

      TAA9893    No writers exist.

Escape messages from based on functions will be re-sent.

RLSALLWTR Command parameters                          *CMD

   WTR           The name of  the writer  to be released.   A  specific
                 name, a  generic name, or  the special value  *ALL may
                 be entered.

   OPTION        The option to be taken for how to resume writing.

                 *CURRENT  is the  default to  resume where  the writer
                 left off.

                 *BEGIN may  be specified  to begin  at the  file  that
                 was being written.

                 *BYPASS may be  specified to bypass the file  that was
                 being written  and start at  the next file.   The file
                 that was being written is implicitly held.

   ACTION        The action to be taken.

                 *CHECK  is  the  default  which  does  not  cause  any
                 changes.    The  listing  describes  what  would  have
                 happened if *RELEASE had been specified.

                 *RELEASE  may  be  entered  to release  the  specified

   OUTPUT        How  to  output the  results.    * is  the  default to
                 display the  spooled file  if the  command is  entered
                 interactively.  The  spooled file is deleted  after it
                 is displayed.

                 If  the  command  is entered  in  batch  or *PRINT  is
                 specified, the spooled  file is  output and  retained.
