Delete Command (DLTCMD)
|Where allowed to run: All environments (*ALL)
The Delete Command (DLTCMD) command deletes a user-defined command (or group of commands) from the library where it is located. Only the command definition object is removed; the command definition source, the command processing program, and the validity checker are not affected.
- You must have object existence (*OBJEXIST) authority to the command to be deleted.
|CMD||Command||Qualified object name||Required, Positional 1|
|Qualifier 1: Command||Generic name, name|
|Qualifier 2: Library||Name, *LIBL, *CURLIB, *USRLIBL, *ALL, *ALLUSR|
Specifies the commands to be deleted. A specific command name or a generic command name can be specified; optionally qualified by a library name.
Qualifier 1: Command
- Specify the name of the command to be deleted.
- Specify the generic name of the commands to be deleted. A generic name is a character string that contains one or more characters followed by an asterisk (*). If a generic name is specified, then all commands that have names with the same prefix as the generic name are deleted.
Qualifier 2: Library
- All libraries in the library list for the current thread are searched until the first match is found.
- The current library for the job is searched. If no library is specified as the current library for the job, QGPL is used.
- If a current library entry exists in the library list for the current thread, the current library and the libraries in the user portion of the library list are searched. If there is no current library entry, only the libraries in the user portion of the library list are searched.
If a specific command name is specified (instead of a generic name), only the first command found with that name is deleted.
- All libraries in the system, including QSYS, are searched.
- All user libraries are searched. All libraries with names that do not begin with the letter Q are searched except for the following:
#CGULIB #DSULIB #SEULIB #COBLIB #RPGLIB #DFULIB #SDALIB
Although the following Qxxx libraries are provided by IBM, they typically contain user data that changes frequently. Therefore, these libraries are considered user libraries and are also searched:
QDSNX QRCLxxxxx QUSRDIRDB QUSRVI QGPL QSRVAGT QUSRIJS QUSRVxRxMx QGPL38 QSYS2 QUSRINFSKR QMGTC QSYS2xxxxx QUSRNOTES QMGTC2 QS36F QUSROND QMPGDATA QUSER38 QUSRPOSGS QMQMDATA QUSRADSM QUSRPOSSA QMQMPROC QUSRBRM QUSRPYMSVR QPFRDATA QUSRDIRCF QUSRRDARS QRCL QUSRDIRCL QUSRSYS
- 'xxxxx' is the number of a primary auxiliary storage pool (ASP).
- A different library name, in the format QUSRVxRxMx, can be created by the user for each previous release supported by IBM to contain any user commands to be compiled in a CL program for the previous release. For the QUSRVxRxMx user library, VxRxMx is the version, release, and modification level of a previous release that IBM continues to support.
- Specify the name of the library to be searched.
This command deletes the command named PAYROLL from library LIB01. Any private authorities to the command are removed from the user profiles of all authorized users.
- Object &1 in &2 type *&3 not found.
- Library &1 not found.
- Cannot allocate library &1.
- Cannot allocate object &1 in &2 type *&3.
- &4 objects type *&3 deleted. &5 objects not deleted.
- Library &1 damaged.
- Not authorized to library &1.
- Not authorized to object &1 in &2 type *&3.
