SHOWCATALOG



SHOWCATALOG

     Displays information about User Defined Commands (UDCs).

SYNTAX


SHOWCATALOG [listfile][;USER=username[.acctname]]

PARAMETERS


listfile An arbitrary file name that identifies the output
from SHOWCATALOG that is sent to the line printer.
Specifying listfile will send the listing to device
class LP (line printer). You may use a file equation
to direct the listing of the catalog to a disk or
tape file. If you omit this parameter, the listing
is sent to the $STDLIST device.

USER Permits the user to list other users' cataloged
files. Account Manager capability (AM) is needed to
show cataloged files for users within your logon
account. System manager capability (SM) is needed
to show users' cataloged files in other accounts.

username.acctname Specifies the user and/or account name whose file
names are to be displayed. The wild card character
"@" may be used to specify all the members of a set

USER=username

USER=username.accountname

USER=@.acctname

USER=@.@

OPERATION


This command lists User Defined command files, their
commands and the level at which they were cataloged (USER,
ACCOUNT, or SYSTEM). This may not be the executing UDC
Catalog Directory, as with the USER option.

The user may specify a listfile to send the listing to the
line printer. You may use a file equation to direct the
listing of the catalog to another disk or tape file.
Default is that the listing is sent to the $STDLIST device.

If SETCATALOG is performed with the USER option after the
user logs on, the user's executing UDC Directory is not
affected. Only the UDC catalog set is affected. The next
time the user logs on, the UDC Directory will be built from
this set. Thus the SHOWCATALOG command with the USER option
will show the UDC catalog set. The

SHOWCATALOG command alone will show the currently executing
UDC Directory commands.

This command is available from a session, job, program, or
in BREAK. Pressing [Break] aborts the execution of the
command.
