retrieve contents of a command program

retrieve contents of a command program

retrieve contents of a command program

I have a lot of *CMD programs on my AS400 which run CL programs which are not the same name as the command.  

Is there a command that I can run and output the information contained in 'Program to Process command'.  

I have tried DSPOBJD to an *OUTFILE but this doesn't show the information.

Many Thanks

RE: retrieve contents of a command program

Use DSPCMD (Display Command).

Nullum gratuitum prandium.


RE: retrieve contents of a command program

thanks flapeyre, but what I am looking for is a command that I can run that puts the details of all command programs in a library to a disk file (*OUTFILE) (bit like DSPOBJD), rather than run DSPCMD for each command individually - I have got about 500-600 to look at.


RE: retrieve contents of a command program

Thanks for your help here folks.

I used the QCDRCMDI api within a CL program and passed the output from each call into a program that wrote the details onto a disk file.

Thanks again
