DSPOBJTYPD      DISPLAY OBJECT TYPE DESCRIPTION        TAAOBKJ

 The Display Object  Type Description command displays the  valid object
 types on  the system in  a subfile and  allows a detail  display with a
 one  paragraph description.  A print  option is also available to print
 a one line listing or a paragraph for each object type.

 Object types that exist in  either libraries or the IFS  are supported.

 A typical command would be:

              DSPOBJTYPD

 A subfile  would be displayed with all  of the valid object  types.  An
 option exists to display a one paragraph description of each.

 A specific type may also be entered such as:

              DSPOBJTYPD    OBJTYPE(*MODD)

 The detail display is immediately shown.

 To print a one paragraph description of all object types, specify:

              DSPOBJTYPD    OUTPUT(*PRINT) PARDSC(*YES)
