DSPTAATOOL DISPLAY OR PRINT TAA TOOL DESCRIPTIONS TAATOLC
The DSPTAATOOL command was originally included by the TAA Tools of
QUSRTOOL and is retained for compatibility purposes. DSPTAA should
be used to display or print the documentation or source of the TAA
Productivity Tools. DSPTAATOOL does have some minor function that is
not supported by DSPTAA. Both DSPTAATOOL and DSPTAA allow a display
or create spooled output of either the tool documentation or source
To use DSPTAATOOL, the source member must be in the specified source
file. If the member does not exist in the source file, DSPTAA is
attempted to display the source from the TAA Archive.
If a member is found in the source file, the DSPTAATOOL command
supports the OUTPUT parameter which controls whether a display or
printout occurs. The display occurs by using the SEU browse
function. The printout occurs from an RPG program. To display the
description of the SCNSRC tool you would specify:
If OUTPUT(*PRINT) is requested, the output is spooled using the file
name of the tool being printed.
DSPTAATOOL may also be used on non-TAA tools.
The program to print the tool produces a heading line for each page
and then prints the source statements found in the member. If the
constant "**NEWPAGE" is found beginning in position 1, a skip to a
new page will occur.
The TAA tools documentation is created to allow a new page break to
occur at reasonable places.
Command parameters *CMD
TOOL The name of the tool to be displayed or printed.
This is the member name of the member in the source
file (e.g. PRTLIBANL). If the member does not
exist in the source file, DSPTAA is attempted for
the same name in the TAA Archive.
OUTPUT How the output should appear. The default is *
meaning if the member is found in the source file,
the text information is displayed using the SEU
browse function if the command is entered
interactively. If the command is executed in batch
or OUTPUT(*PRINT) is specified, spooled printed
If the member is displayed using DSPTAA, the value
of the OUTPUT parameter is passed to the DSPTAA
SRCFILE The qualified name of the source file to be used.
The default is QATTINFO in TAATOOL.
The following TAA Tools must be on your system:
DSPSRCMBR Display source member
SNDCOMPMSG Send completion message
SNDESCMSG Send escape message
None, the tool is ready to use.
