Re: Command programming



fixed

Hey guys I actually mentioned this and showed an example to my wifes CL
class tonight (I ALWAYS get to do the class on creating commands).

PERFECT TIMING as usual.

Same here. Kind of like "Doctor, it hurts when I slap myself.", "Don't

testers -- we know what NOT to do.

True, but it still lets a user type decimal points - the good thing is,
it does not matter, because the number passed in does not have the decimals
- it is still only a *DEC (3 0)

I'd never tried putting decimal points into a number I knew was going to
be an integer - interesting!

Hi Dan,

1) For v5r2 try chapter 9 of
http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/iseries/v5r2/ic2924/books/c4157215.pdf

2) PARM KWD(TEST) TYPE(*DEC) LEN(3 0) RANGE(001 999) should
do what you want.

Question 1: I am trying to find the IBM reference manual for command
programming on InfoCenter (V5R3). I didn't find the PDF for it, so I
searched for "choice program" see if that would point me to it. The
search
takes me to the "Qualifier Definition (QUAL)" page, but this isn't what
I'm
looking for, and I was hoping that I'd get a link that would take me to
the
table of contents for the manual but I am unable to navigate to it.
Frustrating!

Since I can't figure out Question 1:
Question 2: I want to define a parameter on a command as a 3-digit
integer,
with a range of 001 - 999. If I define it as TYPE(*DEC), the definition
allows non-integer decimals (i.e., 9.123, 147.9, etc.). I tried the
integer
types *INT2/4 & *UINT2/4, but those don't play nice with the LENgth
value of
3. I would like to avoid having to write a command validation program.
Ideas?

TIA,
Dan
