I think that you need to use the following in your cpyf
To member or label . . . . . . . TOMBR > *FROMMBR

Subject: CPYF Frommbr(*ALL) Tombr(*ALL)
Is it possible in CL to copy an entire multi-member file? TOMBR(*all) isn't allowed, and if I leave TOMBR out completely, it copies all members of the FROMFILE into a single member in the TOFILE.
CRTDUPOBJ doesn't help because the FROMFILE is a DDM file, and CRTDUPOBJ creates another DDM file. I'm trying to copy all members of the DDM file into a multi-member PF.
Am I missing something obvious?
I'm writing a simple source member comparison utility that will compare a source PF on one system to the same source PF on another. Here is the actual code (so far):
PGM PARM(&LIB1 &LIB2 &SRCFILE &IP)
DCL VAR(&LIB1) TYPE(*CHAR) LEN(10)
DCL VAR(&LIB2) TYPE(*CHAR) LEN(10)
DCL VAR(&SRCFILE) TYPE(*CHAR) LEN(10)
DCL VAR(&IP) TYPE(*CHAR) LEN(20)
CRTDDMF FILE(QTEMP/RMTSRCFILE) +
RMTFILE(&LIB2/&SRCFILE) RMTLOCNAME(&IP *IP)
CPYF FROMFILE(QTEMP/RMTSRCFILE) +
TOFILE(QTEMP/SRCFILE) FROMMBR(*ALL) +
CMPPFM NEWFILE(&LIB1/&SRCFILE) NEWMBR(*ALL) +
OLDFILE(QTEMP/SRCFILE) CMPTYPE(*LINE) +
Anticipated questions / answers: --------------
The CPYF is necessary because you can't run CMPPFM against a DDM file.
&LIB2 is so I can compare two libraries that don't have the same name.
As always, thanks for any & all assistance.
