 CVTIMGCLG       CONVERT IMAGE CATALOG                  TAACLGB

 The Convert Image  Catalog command converts  the image catalogs  to the
 IMGCLGP outfile  in a named library.  Either  optical, virtual tape, or
 all  image catalogs  may be  converted.   The QVOIRCLG  API is  used to
 retrieve the  entries.   The model outfile  is TAACLGBP  with a  format
 name of IMGCLGR.

 Specifying  *OPTICAL  provides  basic   information  about  an  optical
 catalog.    A  different tool  (CVTIMGCLG2)  will  provide  more detail
 information.

 A typical command would be:

              CVTIMGCLG      OUTLIB(QTEMP)

 All image  catalogs  would be  converted  to  the IMGCLGEP  outfile  in
 QTEMP.  A type of *OPTICAL or *VRTTAP may be requested.

 If an  image catalog  for a virtual  tape is not  in a  'ready' status,
 the CLVRTD  (Virtual device) and CLVRTS  (Virtual device status) output
 fields will be blank.

 Command parameters                                    *CMD
 ------------------

    IMGTYPE       The image catalog type.

                  *ALL is the default for all types.

                  *OPTICAL  may  be  specified  for  all  optical  image
                  catalogs.

                  *VRTTAP may  be specified for  all virtual  tape image
                  catalogs.

    OUTLIB        The  library  in   which  the  IMGCLGP  file  will  be
                  placed.   The default  is *LIBL.   If the IMGCLGP file
                  does not already  exist, a library must  be specified.

    OUTMBR        The member  of the  IMGCLGP file to  be used.   If the
                  member  does not exist,  it is added.   The default is
                  IMGCLGP.

    REPLACE       A *YES/*NO  value for  whether  the member  should  be
                  cleared before writing  records into it.   The default
                  is *YES.

                  *NO  may  be  specified  to  add  records to  existing
                  data.
