    -Chapter 3. Controlling Access to Commands
    -Controlling Access to Commands on Page 30 in the pdf version
     states the following:
     -Protecting keywords and values on user-Written commands
     -DSIKVS macro in IBM Tivoli NetView for z/OS Programming:
    Assembler and CNMSCOP service in IBM Tivoli NetView for
    z/OS Programming: PL/I and C
    This reference should also contain REXX Execs. The suggested
    update is this:
    -
    -IF YOU WANT MORE INFORMATION ON...

    Need to change Figure 13 and Figure 14 on Page 15.
    The figures list references to "TKANPARM" and "DKANPARM"
    The correct names are "TKANPAR" and "DKANPAR"

    ***************************************************************
    Programming: REXX and the NetView Command List Language
    manual needs to have information added to section
    2.2 Compiling and Running REXX Command Lists
    probably in the NOTES area to indicate that a compiled
    REXX will not honor UNIQUE CANCEL unless the TESTHALT
    REXX Compile Option is used.  This option has a impact
    on how NetView panels are handled.

    The NetView Automation Guide, section 4.6.14.2 Using
    Automation-Table Management, should be updated to read:
    STATUS
    One of these statuses is displayed in this field:
    ENABLED
    The table is loaded and active. This selection is green.
    DISABLED
    The table is loaded but disabled. This selection is red.
    ALTERED
    The table is loaded and enabled, but contains at least one
    disabled statement. This selection is yellow.

    The name of the subsystem router task is CNMCSSIR. For NetView
    version 6, changing the task name of the subsystem router has
    no utility and is not supported.

    |          |          | other tasks to this task in KB per

    As a result of PMR: 79756,7TD,000 worked on by RJC and KJL
    February 08, 2013.
    Subject: MVSPARM.MSGIFAC
    Documentation change required for NetView for z/OS 6.1
    publication: Installation: Migration Guide sections 4.3.10,
    5.3.11, 6.3.12 and 7.3.7 regarding MVSPARM.MSGIFAC value
    SSIEXT being the only supported value. This is incorrect
    and should be corrected in next release of publication.
    Incorrect: SSIEXT is the only supported value for
    MVSPARM.MSGIFAC
    Correct: *NONE* is the only supported value for MVSPARM.MSGIFAC
    *
    With NetView for z/Os 6.1 there is no longer a concept for
    the method of receiving of unsolicited messages that MSGIFAC
    provided in earlier releases. SYSTEM meant that the messages
    were received via an EMCS interface, and SSIEXT meant that
    the messages were received via an SSI exit and forwarded to
    the NetView address space.
    Since unsolicited MVS messages are now (in V6R1) put into
    Canzlog When a NetView SSI exit gets control, and pulled
    from Canzlog at a later time, the behavior more closely
    resembles SSIEXT. However, since the messages are not
    forwarded to the NetView address space from the SSI exit,
    there really isn't any meaning for MSGIFAC.
    If you try to specify anything other than *NONE* for
    MVSPARM.MSGIFAC, the following message will be issued:
    DWO705I THE KEYWORD 'MSGIFAC' IS NO LONGER SUPPORTED AND
    WILL BE IGNORED.
    *
    The information in the Installation: Migration Guide in sections
    4.3.10, 5.3.11, 6.3.12 and 7.3.7 regarding SSIEXT is the only
    supported value is SSIEXT is incorrect and should be corrected:
    MVSPARM.MSGIFAC only supported value is *NONE*.
    ***************************************************************
    The NetView Security manual should indicate: Libraries or
    modules upporting a command that is expected to be run by
    NetView UNIX server should be added to PROGRAM CONTROL.
    One example would be a REXX function package.
    ***************************************************************
    The description of the STCKvalue operand of the PIPE CZR command
    is inconsistant in version 6.1 "Programming: Pipes."
    In the Programming Pipes entry for PIPE CZR, under "Operand
    Descriptions", refer to the following operands:
    direction
    STCKvalue
    Under "direction" it says:
    "...minus (-) means to search UP toward older messages. A plus
    sign (+)
    means search DOWN toward more recent messages."
    Under "STCKvalue" (the very next paragraph) it says:
    "..., but when searching upward (with plus sign),..."
    ---------------------------------------------------- CNMSTYLE
    states that *NONE* can be specified on the
    AUTOCMD.table_name.ORDER statement, but this is not mentioned
    in the Administration Reference. Add the following as a new
    value for sort_value under ORDER in the description of the
    AUTOCMD statement, which reads as follows:
     *NONE*
       Causes the table to not be loaded. This is handy when another
       AUTOCMD.table_name.ORDER is specified for the same table name
       in another style member that you would like to override.
    MJT 04/17/13
    ----------------------------------------------------------------
    The NetView Security manual should indicate: Libraries or
    modules supporting a command that is expected to be run by
    NetView UNIX server should be added to the controlled program
    list.
    One example would be the REXX function package.

    Version: UG03924 DropDate: Monday December 5 2005
    Update PIPE COLLECT for BEFORE keyword as follows:
      In the description of the BEFORE keyword in the help for PIPE
      COLLECT, the last part of the sentence "and is not part of the
      output produced" is incorrect and should be removed. The text
      that is left is sufficient to describe how the keyword works.
