CA VM:Tape for z/VM

Issue/Introduction



VMTAPE REPLY command can no longer be abbreviated to R.

 

We could do this in r1.8.    What changed?

Environment

Release: VMTAPE55400-2-VM:Tape
Component:

Resolution

This was a change that came with VM:Tape r2.0. 

Based on the other VM:Tape commands that start with "R", it made sense in the common nucleus conversion that the minimum length to uniquely identify the intended command as "REPLY", was set to 3 characters.  Others commands are REFRESH, REJECT, RESUME, and RMS. 

 VM:Tape will accept REP, but not any abbreviation less than the three letters.
