We've updated the &AOMREAD section in the Network Control Language Reference for all CA NetMaster and CA SOLVE products.


In the Network Control Language Reference for all CA NetMaster and CA SOLVE products, in the &AOMREAD section update the text for the MINOR={ YES | NO } operand, as follows:



  Specifies whether &AOMREAD is to return minor lines of a multiline WTO message.


MINOR=YES presents the individual lines of a multiline WTO message in order, following the

  &AOMREAD of the major line.

  This setting is useful if you want to examine attributes of each line.


MINOR=NO causes the next &AOMREAD after reading a major line to skip all the minor lines,

   and read the next message.

Default: YES


Note: Regardless of this setting, the &AOMMINLN and &AOMMINLT built-in functions allow access to the text and line type of any minor line of the current message.

The &AOMNMIN system variable indicates how many minor lines there are.

The operand has no effect except in the case where the previous line read was a multiline WTO major line.


Thus, you can use &AOMREAD MINOR=NO in a main processing loop, and enter an inner processing loop, to read &AOMNMIN minor lines




Important! To make &AOMREAD read the minor lines in responses to console commands, use the screening table to route the minor lines to the AOMPROC.
