Interprocess access to logical name tables?

» close window

The Question is:

Is it possible to inspect the process logical name table of another process?
Obviously I can inspect the system, group and (using ANAL/SYS to get the
JIB) the job name table but I can't see type of identifier for the process
logical name table that I can supply to the /TABLE qualifier of SHOW
Many thanks,
Mark Humphreys

The Answer is :

  There are two general classes of logical name tables: shared, and
  process-private.  The process-private logical name tables are stored
  in memory that is not generally accessible to other processes.  (You
  could use an interprocess AST or rummage around in the process data
  structures using SDA, of course.)  Those tables that are shared are
  visible, if you know where to look when using the SHOW LOGICAL/TABLE
  command (and if you have sufficient process privileges enabled).
