TAA Tools


 The Rename IFS  with Translation command renames directories  and files
 described  in a CVTIFS  outfile (*TYPE2).   Renaming is  done character
 by  character for up  to 10 different characters  that may be replaced.
 Unmatched characters are  not changed.   RNMIFSXLT can be helpful  when
 transferring  IFS   objects  to  different  system   types  which  have
 different naming conventions.

 You  must first convert the IFS object  information to an outfile using
 CVTIFS with OUTFILFMT(*TYPE2).   For example,  a typical command  would
 be to create the  IFSDIRT file in QTEMP by naming the  IFS objects that
 will be considered for conversion.


 Then  RNMIFSXLT  could be  used.   For  example, you  could  rename the
 objects that use  an apostrophe (')  in the  name and change  it to  an
 underscore (_).


 A spooled file will be created describing the old and new names.

 RNMIFSXLT escape messages you can monitor for

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

 RNMIFSXLT Command parameters                          *CMD

    LIB           The name  of the library  containing the  IFSDIRT file
                  created  by CVTIFS.   This file  must be  created with
                  OUTFILFMT(*TYPE2)  and describes the  IFS objects that
                  will be considered for renaming.

    MBR           The member to be accessed.  The default is *FIRST.

    FROMTO        A list  of  up to  10 characters  (both  From and  To)
                  that will  be translated.   The default is  *BLANK for
                  both  entries meaning no  translation will  occur.  If
                  a Hex  value is  entered it  must be  X'40' or  above.
                  At least  one set of  translations must  be specified.

                  *BLANK  is  treated as  a blank  if  the corresponding
                  entry is not blank.

                  *APOST may  be entered  to  mean a  single  apostrophe

                  *LWRCASE  and *UPRCASE  may  be entered  to  translate
                  to/from lower  case A-Z to  upper case A-Z.   Only one
                  use  of *LWRCASE/*UPRCASE may be  made to translate in
                  either direction.

                  Translation occurs one  character at  a time with  the
                  first FROMTO  value that matches.  If  a second FROMTO
                  also matches, it is not used.

    OBJTYPE       The  object   type  to  be  renamed.    *STMF  is  the
                  default.  *DIR or *BOTH may be specified.

    ACTION        The action to be performed.

                  *CHECK is the  default to check  what the change  will
                  be.  See the created spooled file.

                  *RNM may be specified to rename the object.


 You  must  first  convert  the IFS  object  information  that  will  be
 considered    for   renaming    using    the   CVTIFS    command   with
