IFENQL (HLI function)
The conventions used on this page are described in Function call notation conventions.
- The IFENQL call (ENQUEUE LIST) enqueues that set of records on the specified list.
- Thread type
- single cursor IFSTRT thread
- IFCALL function number
- Compile-only form
- Not available
- Execute-only form
- Not available
Specify the parameters in the syntax order shown above.
|RETCODE||[O,i,r] The Model 204 return code is the required first parameter. The code is a binary integer value.|
|LIST_NAME||[I,c,r] The list name is a required input parameter that specifies the name of a list. Specify the list as a character string.|
|ACTION||[I,i,r] The action is a required input parameter that specifies whether to enqueue on the set of records in share or exclusive mode. Specify one of the following integer values:
1 = Enqueues in share mode
2 = Enqueues in exclusive mode
|TIME||[I,i,r] The time is a required input parameter. Specify an integer value that is the number of times to retry; the wait time is in three-second periods.|
On a single cursor IFSTRT thread, a subsequent call to IFPROL places the current record on the list and enqueues on the record itself with the status specified for the list. On a single cursor IFSTRT thread, a subsequent call to IFRRFL removes the record from the list and dequeues it.
On a single cursor IFSTRT thread, a call to IFLIST following a call to IFENQL dequeues the set of records currently on the list, clears the list, and places the current set on it with no enqueuing.
If a call to IFENQL results in an enqueuing conflict, Model 204 waits at most three seconds and then tries again, for as many times as specified in the time parameter (the wait time is in three-second periods). After trying unsuccessfully for the number of times indicated in the time parameter, Model 204 returns a completion code of 3 to the HLI program.
