      CHKPACK  EXEC     *
      LISTPACK EXEC     *
* Sequence of operations is....
* 1) Create a FILELIST of your PACKAGE files and save it as
*    'userid PACKAGES *'
*    where userid = your VM userid.
* 2) Use LISTPACK EXEC to send a TOOLS request to your TOOLS
*    disk requesting a LIST file for each PACKAGE file in the
*    'userid PACKAGES *' file.
*    Syntax is   LISTPACK node    id      disk   ( toolscmd
*                         v       v       v        v
*          defaults are   RALVM17 VMTOOLS VMTOOLS  LIST
* 3) RECEIVE all of the LIST files from RDRLIST on to an
*    appropriate disk.
* 4) Run CHKPACK EXEC to compare each PACKAGE file in 'userid PACKAGES *'
*    to its associated LIST file.
*    Output is a message file which details files which are called out
*    in the PACKAGE file but do not appear in the SUMMARY file. In other
*    words the file is missing from the TOOLS disk.
*    Also checks for the TOOLS version being down level to your local
*    disk version.
* New releases....
* 09/Sep/93 1.1 Added several messages to CHKPACK & LISTPACK EXECs.
*               Changed order of processing in LISTPACK & CHKPACK so that

* 09/Nov/93 1.2 Minor code improvements.
* 21/Jul/94 1.3 Allow LISTPACK to issue any TOOLS command ( default is
*               SUMMARY ).
