Can some one tell the difference between options R and S in changes man screen 1.6.2

Here is the definition from Serena manual.


R Restage component from staging library

ST Stage component into the staging library (S will also work)

But what exactly are the steps happening behind screen for these two options.

Why not try them in batch and look at the generated JCL? But, basically, they are moving components from one set of libraries to another and updating control information.

Hello,

If you want more than is in the manual, suggest you open an issue with Serena Support. What you want may be proprietary or they may be willing to provide some kind of detailed explanation.

Their meaning is quite explanatory:

If the component is in ChangeMan Package, you make changes, you compile it - process is called "Restage component from staging library" and you use "R".

On the other hand, if the compoent-of-interest is not in Change-Man Package, you brought it in Change-Man Package, you change it and compile it - the process is called "Stage component into the staging library".

By the way the name is Man, Change Man; NOT

I believe the TS wants more detail than merely what stage/restage accomplish.

Possibly i'm reading more into the question. . .

Hi Dick,

I looked at this line from the TS

and explained about that. Actually, Nic has already indicated what needs to be done to see what happens under the cover...

I do not think this explanation fits into situation, because you apply this function to a componnet already inside the package.

I will try Nic's advise and see what result I get.
