137 Views


Entering program source The programmer menu can be used to enter program source.

The programmer menu can be called directly by calling the QPGMMENU program, or by using the Start Programmer Menu (STRPGMMNU) command.

Option 1. Start Data File Utility                                       
    Select this option and press the Enter key to work with a system data file utility (DFU) application, such as:                       
     o  Display, create, change, or delete an Application Development Tools DFU program                                               
     o  Run or manage an Application Development Tools DFU program      
    The DFU option does not use any of the input fields on the  Programmer Menu.  
    If you want to select parameter values for the STRDFU command, enter the option number and press the F4 (Prompt) key.                                                               
Option 2. Work with Queries                                               
    Select this option and press  Enter to design, run, delete, or  change a Query application.  The Query option does not use any of the input fields on the Programmer Menu.                              
Option 3. Create an object from a source file                             
    Select this option to create an object from a source file member.     
    The Create Object (CRTOBJ) command will be submitted to batch to  create the object.  The object types that can be created are programs, files, or commands.  You can type the object name to be created in the Parm field, and the object type to be created in the   
    Type field.  The Parm2 field is only used if you specify CMD or       
    CMD38 as the value in the Type field.  The value in the Parm2 field   
    is used as the command processing program name for your command.      
    The Source file and Library fields indicate where the source member   
    exists.  The Object Library field will be where the object is         
    placed when it is created.  The Job Description field specifies the   
    job description to be used when submitting the create object          
    command to batch for processing.  See the help for the Type field     
    for a list of the correct type values for this option.                
Option 4. Call a program (CALL)                                           
    Select this option and press Enter or F4 (Prompt) to select values    
    for the Call (CALL) command.  Or you can type in the Parm field the   
    program name to be run.  The Object Library field specifies the       
    library name, containing the program that is to run.                  
Option 5. Run a command                                                   
    Select this option to run a Control Language (CL) command.  Then,     
                                                                          
    you can do one of the following:                                      
     o  Type the command to be run in the Command field and press the     
        Enter key.                                                        
     o  Type the command to be run in the Command field and press the     
        F4 (Prompt) key to select the parameter values for the command    
        to be run.                                                        
     o  Leave the Command field blank and press the Enter key to          
        display the Major (MAJOR) menu from which you can select          
        commands to run from other menus.                                
Option 6. Submit a job                                                   
    Select this option to place a job on a queue of jobs to be run in a  
    batch environment.  For example, you can:                            
     o  Type the name of the command to be submitted to batch in the     
        Command field.                                                   
     o  Press F4 (Prompt) to select parameter values for the command     
        you typed in the Command field.                                  
     o  Press F4 (Prompt) without a command name in the Command field    
        to display the Major (MAJOR) menu where you can select commands  
        to run from other menus.                                         
    The value you specify in the Parm field will be used as the job      
    name on the Submit Job (SBMJOB) command.                             
    The value you specify in the Job Description field determines what   
    job description will be used on the Submit Job command.  This value  
    controls the job's environment.                                      
Option 7. Go to a menu                                                   
    Select this option to go to a desired menu.  Type the name of the    
    menu in the Parm field.  If no value is typed in the Parm field,     
    the Major (MAJOR) menu is displayed, where you can select commands
    from other menus.  You can also press F4 (Prompt) to select values
    for the Go (GO) command.                                          
Option 8. Edit a source file member                                   
    Select this option to create or change a source member in an      
    existing source file.  The following input fields can be specified
     o  Parm, which specifies the source member to be edited.         
     o  Type, which specifies the syntax checker that will be used for
        this member.  See the help for the Type field for a list of   
        values you can use.                                           
     o  Source file, which specifies the file that contains the source
        member.                                                       
     o  Source library, which specifies the name of the library where 
        the source file is found.                                     
Option 9. Design a display format using SDA                           
    Select this option to use the Screen Design Aid (SDA) to create,  
    change, or test a display record format using the Start Screen    
    Design Aid (STRSDA) command.  The following input fields can be   
    specified:                                                        
      o  Parm, which specifies the SDA member name.                           
      o  Parm2, which specifies the SDA mode.  *STD, *S38, *S36 are the       
                                                                              
         values you can select.                                               
      o  Source file, which specifies the file that contains the source       
         member.                                                              
      o  Source library, which specifies the name of the library where        
         the source file is found.                                            
      o  Object library, which specifies where the object is found.           
      o  Job Description, which determines what job description controls      
         a job's environment when SDA submits a job.                          
 Option 90. Sign off                                                          
     Select this option to end the display station job you started when       
     you signed on the system.  There are no required input fields,           
     although the Parm field must be blank if you do not specify either       
     *NOLIST (to delete the job log information) or *LIST (to spool the       
     job log information for printing) as the SIGNOFF command parameter       
     value.
