ELIPS Copy Utility

The ELIPS Copy Utility Function makes a copy of the selected member in another library or sequential data set. If the member being copied is an archived member in a BDAM or VSAM master file and the TO master file is wide record (and NOAUTOARC is not specified when the master file is initialized), all archive levels are copied.

The ELIPS Copy Utility Function makes a copy of the selected member in another library or sequential data set. If the member being copied is an archived
CA Librarian
member in a BDAM or VSAM master file and the TO master file is wide record (and NOAUTOARC is not specified when the master file is initialized), all archive levels are copied.
(The exception to this is if a specific archive level is specified. In that case, only that archive level is copied.) Otherwise only the current level is copied. If the FROM file is a
CA Librarian
library, the member control information is also copied. If a like-named member already exists on the TO library, that member is updated. If such a member does not exist, it is added.
The control information that is added or updated includes whatever is on the FROM member, including programmer, description, language, and module type.
If the member is added to the TO file, the history records from the FROM member are also copied. The date of the history records copied is the current date.
The ELIPS Copy Utility does
not
function in the same way as the batch
CA Librarian
Utility Copy; nor does it function the same way as the
CA Librarian
routine called LIBRCOPY. The batch
CA Librarian
Utility Copy copies all archive levels of an archived module, and completely replaces like-named modules existing on the destination master file, unless specifically directed not to replace these modules. LIBRCOPY copies only the current archive level of a module, and updates like-named existing modules on the destination master file, instead of replacing them. For further information on batch
CA Librarian
Utility Copy and the LIBRCOPY program, see the "Systems Services" section.
