You are correct that CHKPRDOPT has been around a long time.  But as for the
rest .... why are you so scared?  All this command does is check that all
the objects listed in the various Product Load objects can be found in the
associated product libraries.  It will invoke any product-defined exit
programs during that process.  It will not take down your system.

It is a very useful command for determining what is wrong with a product
installation and is particularly useful during the product packaging phase.
It has two major failings:

        1/ It depends very much on the accuracy of the build
        2/ It doesn't handle IFS objects (as in non-QSYS.LIB stuff)

Regards,
Simon Coulter.
