To invoke an ELIPS functions, enter the first letter of the function on the command line. Most of these functions require that you specify a member name. Available functions are as follows:
    Displays a line describing each level of an archived member.
  • B (BROWSE)
    Displays the contents of an
    CA Librarian
  • C (COPY)
    Makes a copy of a member and assigns to it the name provided in the NEWNAME field.
  • D (DELETE)
    Deletes the member from the
    CA Librarian
  • E (EDIT)
    Invokes the ISPF editor for the member selected.
  • I (INFO)
    Requests the display of a member's control and history information for examination and update. You can also add history records using the INFO function.
  • J (JCLVAL)
    Invokes the CA JCL validation product for the member.
    Displays the options for the CA JCL validation product.
  • LI (LIST)
    Displays a LONG or SHORT format selection list, depending on what was specified.
    CA Librarian
    library defaults, ELIPS installation options, and user options.
  • P (PRINT)
    Prints a listing of the selected member to the SYSOUT class and DEST defined on the ELIPS OPTIONS panel.
    Queries the Edit Recovery Table for pending entries.
  • R (RENAME)
    Renames the member to the name supplied in the NEWNAME field.
  • V (VIEW)
    Invokes the ISPF editor for the member selected, but does not allow updates to the member.
  • TY (TYPES)
    Displays the member type/language table generated during ELIPS installation. Member types,
    CA Librarian
    language code, and sequence field starting column and length are all shown on a scrollable display.
    Copies members to and from
    CA Librarian
    libraries and moves members from sequential or partitioned data sets to
    CA Librarian
You can specify commands and parameters on this line. When parameters accompany a command name, the command parameters override what is specified in the other fields of the entry panel.
The data set name is taken from the OTHER LIBRARIAN DSNAME field, if this field is not blank. Otherwise, the PROJECT/GROUP/TYPE fields are used for the data set name.
When you do
specify a command but supply a member name, the command defaults to EDIT. Specifying a wildcard or a blank member name defaults to LIST. To obtain a member selection list, enter only the
CA Librarian
library name. The LONG member selection list is the default if the SELECTION LIST field is blank.
    Specifies the three levels of qualification of an
    CA Librarian
    library name, when the format of the
    CA Librarian
    library data set name is as follows:
    You must fill in all three of these fields to specify an
    CA Librarian
    Specifies the
    CA Librarian
    member to process (or a wildcard specification for a selection list). You can use the MEMBER field when the data set name is specified in the OTHER field and you supply any of the NEWNAME, PSWD, or ARC LVL fields.
    Otherwise, you must specify the member name or wildcard name for a selection list in the OTHER LIBRARIAN DSNAME field, enclosed in parentheses immediately after the data set name.
    When you specify the member name in the OTHER field, you can also specify archive level selection by enclosing it in parentheses immediately following the member name. You must still specify NEWNAME and PSWD in their respective fields.
    If the COMMAND field is blank and the MEMBER field is either blank or a wildcard specification, a member selection list is generated.
    Specifies the member record length to use when creating a new member with the EDIT function on a wide record master file. Specify a value from 10 to 255.
    Specifies the name of the new member created by the COPY function or the new name for a member being renamed. The new name must not contain spaces, commas, parentheses, or slashes.
  • PSWD
    Specifies the
    CA Librarian
    password for the existing member. If your site requires it, you must enter the password to access a member. Otherwise, you can enter the password as a check to be sure you are naming the correct member.
    If a password is required for a member of an
    CA Librarian
    library that you specified in the OTHER LIBRARIAN DSNAME field, you must specify that password in the PSWD field.
    When you supply an incorrect password, even if not required, ELIPS does not process the member.
    Specifies the archive level of the member to process. Specify the archive level in one of three ways:
    • Date and time. The syntax is as follows:
      • yy
        Specifies the year.
      • mm
        Specifies the month (default is 12).
      • dd
        Specifies the day (default is 31).
      • hh
        Specifies the hour (default is 24).
      • mm
        Specifies the minute default is 59).
      • ss
        Specifies the second (default is 59).
    If pairs of digits are omitted from the right, the default occurs.
    • Absolute level number. The syntax is as follows:
      Lnnn ARC LVL ===> L3
      • nnn
        Specifies the level number, with 0 as the first version created.
    • Relative level number. The syntax is as follows:
      -n ARC LVL ===> -1
      • -
        Specifies the number, with -0 as the current version.
    Defines the name of an
    CA Librarian
    library whose name does not follow the three-qualifier format or specifies the name of any
    CA Librarian
    library to override without disturbing the entry in the PROJECT, GROUP, and TYPE fields.
    You can enter a member name or a wildcard specification in the OTHER LIBRARIAN DSNAME field using the following format:
    If the member name is omitted, a selection list is generated.
    Enter a fully qualified data set name in the OTHER LIBRARIAN DSNAME field by surrounding it with single quotation marks.
    If you omit the single quotes, your TSO prefix is attached to the beginning of the data set name as a high-order qualifier.
    Determines whether the dataset name specified for OTHER LIBRARIAN DSNAME is saved in the profile and used when you enter ELIPS.
    uses the name saved in the file so you don't have to enter it.
    clears the name from the profile settings so you can enter a different one.
    Specifies how you want to view the selection list. If you do not enter a function on the command line and do not specify a member name, specify a wildcard.
    • L
      Specifies a LONG format member selection list.
    • S
      Specifies a SHORT format member selection list, showing member names only.
    • Q
      Specifies a SHORT format member selection list, showing member names only.
  • PGMR
    For the LONG member selection list, displays only members with the specified programmer name in their control information.
    You can specify the PGMR field as the name to find on the
    CA Librarian
    members or use a wildcard. If the field is left blank or contains only an asterisk (*), then the PGMR field is ignored when the selection list displays.
  • TYPE
    For the LONG member selection list only, specifies the type of member to display on the selection list (for example COBOL, ASM, or CLIST). A table (generated at ELIPS installation) translates the type specified here into a CA-Librarian language code.
    You can only use those types that were specified during ELIPS installation. ELIPS translates the member type into an
    CA Librarian
    language code for the search.
    When you enter a member type that is not on the Type/Language Table, a panel displays showing all of the acceptable member types. The user must then enter a correct member type to proceed. You can enter an asterisk or blank field (meaning all types) as anything can be valid in the TYPE field.
    You can specify a one- to three- character
    CA Librarian
    language code in the TYPE field by preceding the language code with a slash. For example, specifying /ASM displays only those members with an
    CA Librarian
    language code of ASM.
    Specifies whether you want to be prompted with a CONFIRM DELETE screen whenever a DELETE is to take place.
    If you specify
    , a panel displays every time you request the DELETE function, showing the pertinent control information for the member to delete. You can cancel the DELETE at this point.
    You can only specify the option to display a CONFIRM DELETE screen on the main entry panel.
    Indicates whether the member listing report or only the member data prints. DATA prints only FBA members (those with 1 in column one of record one) using the FBA character controls.
    Specifies whether the member's history records display automatically for BROWSE and EDIT functions. EDIT also requires the EDIT profile to have NOTES ON. You can set NOTES OFF and DISPLAY HISTORY Y to have the records displayed for BROWSE only.
    You can only specify the DISPLAY HISTORY option on the main entry panel.
    Specifies the name of the optional initial macro to use when the PDF editor is invoked for the ELIPS EDIT function. An initial macro is executed after data is read, but before the data displays for edit.
