The  Replace Edit  Description  command  uses  the outfile  created  by
CVTEDTD to  replace one or all of the  Edit Descriptions (5-9) in QSYS.
A  specific Edit Description  (or all) are deleted  and then the values
from  the   CVTEDTD  outfile   are  used   to  create   the  new   Edit
Descriptions.   The  command is  helpful in  moving a  standard  set of
Edit Descriptions to other systems.

You must have *ALLOBJ authority to use RPLEDTD.

You must have first used CVTEDTD to create the outfile EDTDP.

To replace all Edit Descriptions, you would specify:

            RPLEDTD       LIB(xxx)

where the library contains the EDTDP file.

One or more records must exist in EDTDP for the command to process.

For the named (or all) Edit Description:

  **   DSPEDTD is used to print the old version if it exists.

  **   The existing Edit Description is deleted.

  **   The new Edit Description is created from the EDTDP data.

  **   DSPEDTD is used to print the new Edit Description.

Use of CVTEDTD/RPLEDTD on the same system

Some  users may want to capture a  good version of the Edit Description
entries for  a possible  later use  if the  entries  become damaged  or
need  to  be  reset.    The  use   of  CVTEDTD  to  save  the  existing
definitions will allow you to use RPLEDTD if it is ever needed.

RPLEDTD escape messages you can monitor for

None.  Escape messages from based on functions will be re-sent.
