* Notes...
*
* The code is supplied in original  source form contained within VIEW4GDF
* SOURCE and in  run-time form within VIEW4GDF  EXEC.  The exec  file has
* been  compressed using  the ONELINE  PACKAGE.   If you  find this  form
* inconvenient  simply delete  the EXEC  and  UNPACK the  SOURCE (  using
* COPYFILE ) then rename SOURCE to EXEC.
*
* There is a  small bit of code at  the front of the  exec which supports
* linking of the disk(s) containing the GDDMREXX code.  This is currently
* coded to  reflect GREENOCK  usage.  The  DISKS option  is used  in your
* profile to change this to your own local requirements.
* Similarly for the  IMAGCONV and ADMPCONV EXEC's, although  DISKS is not
* supported  there, you  have to  hard  code the  program. However,  this
* should never  be necessary  if you  always call these execs from within
* VIEW4GDF.
*
* Entry to  and from CMS  SUBSET mode  is supported from  the interactive
* display presented to  the user ( via PA2 key  ). Before entering SUBSET
* a test for  the presence of the  $SUBSET EXEC is made.  If present this
* exec will  be invoked immediately on  entry to SUBSET. The  exec may be
* used to warn the  user they have entered SUBSET and  prompt them on how
* to  return. A  package which  provides  such an  elegant entry/exit  is
* available from the  author of this ( VIEW4GDF )  package. To obtain....
*
*    Request $SUBSET PACKAGE From VMTOOLS
*
* In the absence of the above package a 'window' which guides the user on
* return from SUBSET is presented.
*
* VIEW4GDF FORUM exists on IBMVM/IBMVMB to discuss this package.
*
* Dependencies....
*
* The WEEKNUM  EXEC (  part of  REMIND PACKAGE  ) is  required where  the
* parameter substitution symbol /W is used in a command.
* In normal use there are no dependencies other than GDDMREXX.
*
* Nice to have....
*
* OMNIFIND MODULE may be used by the DISKS/LINKS option commands if it is
* available.
