Compiling PF's

Sometimes there is a need to compile physical files in bulk. There are two ways to do that, either create a file containing all source member names (member list) and write a CL to read that file, or make a user option, which works on one member at a time with validations, such as existence of the object, if it is in error then write the name of the member to a physical file. First of all, you create a user option, CP in this case as follows:

CALL PGM(*LIBL/CMPPF) PARM(&l &f &n). The program will create a physical file of all members, which are not compiled, and optionally copy those members to a specified source physical file, from where the option can be executed again.

             &FILNAM &TSRC)    
DCL     &SLIB   *CHAR 10       
DCL     &TLIB   *CHAR 10       
DCL     &SRC    *CHAR 10       
DCL     &TSRC   *CHAR 10       
DCL     &FILNAM *CHAR 10       

/*The parameters of CRTPF can be changed as required */
   FROMFILE(&SLIB/&SRC) +
