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.
