The subroutine DKTBNAME provides table name conversion. When writing special purpose programs for tablesONLINE/CICS (an optional tableBASE component) user exits, it may be necessary to generate special table names either to access the internal tables of tablesONLINE/CICS, or to generate temporary tables or Alternate Index tables that follow the naming convention provided by this program. The program DKTBNAME can be used for this purpose.
The generated names are derivatives of the original names. DKTBNAME accomplishes this by changing the bit settings of the first two bits of an 8-byte name.
The program DKTBNAME can be used to query, manipulate, or flip the bit settings of the first two bits of an 8-byte name.
