DEV             DEVICE STATUS                          TAACFGD

 The Device  Status command  is a  shorthand to  the WRKCFGSTS  command.
 It provides device status in a simple keystroke manner.

 A typical command would be:

         DEV         PRT

 This  would be  a request  for all  devices that  begin with  PRT (note
 that no * is needed).  The WRKCFGSTS display would be shown.

 The  command works well for generically  named devices.  If devices are
 not generically named, a special  value may be used as is  supported by
 WRKCFGSTS.  For example:

         DEV         *PRT

 This will display all printer devices.

 The  WRKCFGSTS  CFGTYPE parameter  is  automatically  *DEV.   For  this
 reason,  certain  special  values  found  for  the  CFGD  parameter  on
 WRKCFGSTS are not supported on DEV.

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

    CFGD          A name  without  an *  may  be  entered to  request  a
                  generic name (It  is also valid to enter an  * such as
                  PRT*).    If  devices are  generically  named  by auto
                  config, names  such as  TAP, DKT  etc.   can be  used.
                  The  following  special  values   are  also  supported
                  *ALL,  *CMN,   *DKT,  *TAP  *DSP,   *LCLDSP,  *RMTDSP,
                  *VRTDSP, *PRT, *LCLPRT, *RMTPRT, and *VRTPRT.

    OUTPUT        *  is  the default  and has  the  same meaning  as the
                  OUTPUT parameter on WRKCFGSTS.
