Documenting your EXECs

Use the EXEC information line to classify EXECs by GROUP, FUNCTION, CODE, DESCRIPTION, DISPLAY, or AUTHOR. Then you can structure solutions or EXECs to automate your data center.

The EXEC information line is specified within each EXEC and has the following format:

/* DOC GROUP() FUNC() CODE() DESC() DISP() AUTHOR()*/

where

Field

Description

GROUP

designates the first hierarchical level in 1- to 8 alphanumeric characters

FUNC

designates the second hierarchical level in 1- to 8 alphanumeric characters

DESC

provides a minimal description of the EXEC's purpose in 1- to 25 alphanumeric characters

DISP

indicates whether the EXEC should appear in a formatted member list; Y or N

CODE

is a two-character user assigned code

AUTHOR

overrides the ISPF author statistic in 1- to 8-alphanumeric characters

When an EXEC has a /*DOC statement, the EXEC Management application displays the values specified in the EXEC Description display. The information line can be located anywhere in the EXEC. It can be split over any number of physical lines.
