Question: 

The CA Easytrieve Toolkit and CA PanAudit Plus products share macros. Are these products equivalent?

Environment:  

CA Easytrieve Toolkit release 2.0 and CA PanAudit Plus release 3.0

Answer: 

Both products contain macros with the same name. However, the macro contents may be different.

Due to the same-name macros, the products should not be installed in the same CSI/ZONE.

The same-named macros can call differently named load modules that provide similar functions, depending on whether they are called by CA Easytrieve Toolkit or by CA PanAudit Plus.

Some CA Easytrieve Toolkit macros call EPTK-prefixed modules like EPTKDATE, and some CA PanAudit Plus macros call PAPL-prefixed modules like PAPLDATE.

There are also some identically named load modules. CA Easytrieve Toolkit macros are a subset of CA PanAudit Plus macros, so not all CA PanAudit Plus routines have corresponding CA Easytrieve Toolkit routines.
