TAA Tools

The  Retrieve  CCSID  From  PF  command  retrieves  the  CCSID  from  a
physical file.   If the  file has multiple  CCSIDs, TAA9896 is  sent as
an escape message.

A typical series of commands would be:

             DCL        &CCSID *DEC LEN(5 0)
             RTVCCSID   FILE(xxx) CCSID(&CCSID)

RTVCCSIDPF escape messages you can monitor for

      TAA9896    The file has multiple CCSIDs

Escape messages from based on functions will be re-sent.

RTVCCSIDPF Command parameters                         *CMD

   FILE          The  qualified name  of the physical  file to retrieve
                 the CCSID for.   Either a data  or source file may  be
                 specified.   A  specific library  or *CURLIB  may also
                 be used.

   CCSID         The  Coded  Character Set  ID  returned.   It  must be
                 specified as *DEC LEN(5 0).


Because RTVCCSIDPF returns  a variable,  the command may  only be  used
in a CL program.
