The Check TAA Productivity Tools command prints a listing of the
** The important information from the TAALICENSE and TAACTL data
** Commands that have the same name as the TAA commands.
** TAA* objects that are outside of the TAA Tool libraries.
** Special TAA programs (e.g. HLRMVMSG, SNDESC) that are outside
of the TAA Tool libraries.
You must have (or adopt) *ALLOBJ special authority to specify *ALL or
*ALLUSR for the LIB parameter.
A typical command would be submitted to batch as:
This would check all the libraries on the system for duplicate TAA
command names, objects named TAA and special TAA program names that
are outside of the TAA libraries.
Because the TAA Tools existed in various forms before the TAA
Productivity Tools product came into existence, there is a
possibility that you have old versions of the tools on your system.
If this occurs, it can lead to problems where the wrong object is
If you have commands on your system that do not belong to the TAA
Tools but use the same name, you can easily access the wrong name.
Bypassed objects and libraries
The following objects and libraries are bypassed.

** The entire TAASECURE library (no commands are shipped in this
The TAA authorization list objects in QSYS.
The objects, commands, and library name of the library specified for
the TAA Tool commands. If you took the default at installation time,
they are in the TAATOOL library.
Command parameters *CMD
LIB The library to be checked. You may name a specific
library or the special values *NONE *ALL, *ALLUSR,
*USRLIBL. The default is *NONE.
If *NONE is used, only the data area information
from TAALICENSE and TAACTL is used for the output.
No actual checking occurs other than to ensure a
If *ALL or *ALLUSR is specified, you must have
*ALLOBJ special authority.
CMDS Should the commands in the LIB parameter library be
checked for duplicates to the TAA Productivity Tool
command names. This is a *YES/*NO value that
defaults to *YES.
OBJS Should the objects in the LIB parameter library be
checked for TAA* objects. This is a *YES/*NO value
that defaults to *YES.
If *YES is specified, the following special TAA
program names are also checked for: HLRMVMSG,
SNDCOMP, SNDDIAG, SNDESC, SNDESC2, and SNDSTS.
OUTPUT How to output the results. * is the default and
means to display the results if run interactively or
print if run in batch. *PRINT may be specified to
cause a spooled file to be printed.
ESCMSG Whether to send an escape message if some duplicate
commands and/or TAA program names are found. *NO is
the default which means the command will complete
normally. *YES may be specified to cause the
TAA9893 escape message if duplicate commands or TAA
programs are found.
If the LIB value is *ALL or *ALLUSR, you must have *ALLOBJ special
