DSPBOF          DISPLAY BASED ON FILE                  TAADBLU

The Display Based on  File command displays the based  on physical file
members  for  a  logical  file.    This  provides a  simpler  means  of
determining  the based on file members  rather than using DSPFD.  Other
information about the access path is also displayed.

A typical command would be:

             DSPBOF    FILE(xxx)

The named file must be a  logical file.  The member defaults  to *FIRST
so the  based on file/members would  be displayed for  the first member
of the logical file.

DSPBOF escape messages you can monitor for

None.  Escape messages from based on functions will be re-sent.

DSPBOF Command parameters                             *CMD

   FILE          The  qualified  name of  the logical  file  to display
                 the based on file/members for.   *LIBL is the  default
                 for the library  name.  A specific  library or *CURLIB
                 may also be used.

   MBR           The  member  of  the  file  to  display the  based  on
                 file/members  for.    The   default  is  *FIRST.     A
                 specific member or *LAST may also be specified.

   OUTPUT        How  to output  the  results.   *  is the  default  to
                 display  the spooled  file if  the command  is entered
                 interactively.   The spooled file  is deleted after it
                 is displayed.

                 If  the command  is  entered  in batch  or  *PRINT  is
                 specified, the  spooled file  is output  and retained.
