4.16.2 When you Rename a Function

When a function has been selected for renaming a display similar to the following example will be presented:

 

 DC@P301401                 Rename Existing Function                   

                                                                       

 Process    : XXXXXXXXXX XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX                 

 Function   : XXXXXXX    XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX                 

                                                                       

                                                                       

                                                                       

                                                                       

                                                                       

  Enter new name of function . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . _______     

                                                                       

                                                                       

                                                                       

                                                                       

 Fnn=Help  Fnn=Exit  Fnn=Cancel  Fnn=Messages                          

 

 

To rename the function within the process enter a new function name. The function name must not already exist within the process, and if the function being renamed is a *DIRECT function, the new function name must not exist within the partition.

All records associated with the function will be renamed to the new function name, including any compiled objects such as programs and display files (in the case of *DIRECT functions).

Note: The function will be flagged as unusable once it has been renamed. The process will also be flagged as not compiled.
