CA-View is the retrieval component of the Computer Associates family of automated output management products. It allows you to retrieve and browse or print previously archived SYSOUT. Initially, you provide criteria for selection of archived SYSOUT to be made available to you. You may then
scroll through the list of available SYSOUT via the Scroll commands and, by entering the appropriate selection character on the desired entry, select
SYSOUT for browsing or printing.

If your selection requires the SYSOUT to be online and it no longer resides on disk, it will automatically be loaded to disk from tape. Alternatively, you may request that a background job be submitted to reload it to disk.

The following topics are presented in sequence or may be selected by number:

  1. Display format

  2. Commands and PF keys

  3. Process MODE commands

  4. DEFine commands

  5. Dynamic allocation codes

  6. STATUS command

Type 5 on the command line to bring up the list of dynamic allocation error codes
