The s-dump command writes items from a given file to the attached peripheral storage device in sorted order. The heading or header modifier allows specifying the contents of the tape label written to the tape prior to the dump. The tape must already be at load point in order to write the tape label. If no selection criteria are specified, the entire file is written.
The sample command creates a temporary select-list of the first n items in a file that match the specified criteria. This command is useful when testing a small number of items. For example, testing 100 items in a file rather than the entire file.
The save command invokes the backup procedure to save the entire file system, an individual account, or to perform an incremental save. It is the process invoked by the account-save and file-save commands.
The set-active-update command ensures that data fragments are cleaned-up from file-system frames whenever data is deleted from a file. Additionally, frames that are being returned to local overflow are also scrubbed.
The set-compat command allows a user (port), or the global environment, to be set to a particular Pick compatible environment. Using this command allows functionality to be added to D3 that is specific to a particular Pick compatible environment.
The set-floppy command attaches the first floppy (in the list-device listing) drive to the current process for subsequent input or output activity. The drive indicator and density are indicated with the options provided.
The set-imap BASIC program defines a keyboard input and/or a terminal output translation table, through which any sequence of keyboard input and terminal output characters can be translated into any other sequence of characters.
The set-num-format command changes the currency sign, thousand, and decimal point in an m conversion, at a local or global level. All of these signs must be a single character. The defaults for these are the previous settings.
The set-ovf-reserve command in the DM account, sets aside a specific number of frames as the spare tank in the event that the overflow table runs out of frames. The default is 1024 or .5% of your available disk space (maxfid), whichever is greater. When the set-ovf-reserve command is run, the system displays both the old and new reserve values.
The set-remote-user BASIC program can be used to allow the local user to utilize a different user and/or password when connecting to a remote OSFI server which has been started with the a option to force user/password authorization.
The set-runaway-autoquit command in the DM account automatically terminates the specified process in the event of an overflow runaway condition. If set-runaway-autoquit is not specified and an overflow runaway condition occurs, a prompt (Continue or Quit) displays instead. All overflow runaway conditions are logged to the errors file.
The set-runaway-limit command in the DM account establishes the maximum number of frames allowed before an overflow runaway condition occurs. If the number of frames acquired by the specified process when either writing or retrieving an item reaches the specified limit, the system detects an overflow runaway condition and reports it. This command can be applied globally to all lines or locally to the current line. See set-runaway-autoquit command for more information.
The set-time command sets the current system time. The hours are specified from 00 (12:00 AM) to 23 (11:00 PM). The current time can be displayed by pressing CTRL+M or Enter at the TCL prompt, or by entering the TCL command time. If the time is actually changed, set-time logs an entry in the errors file.
The sp-assign command displays, changes, or resets the current spooler output assignment options for the current process/user. An sp-assign command with no options closes any currently open files assigned by the current process and resets the assignment to the default state. The default assignment is: output to printer, normal spooler entry (meaning, not a hold file), one copy, form queue 0, close files at end of process, queue job for output immediately upon closing.
The sp-open command leaves the next spooler entry generated by the current process open upon completion of the output generating process. Any subsequent (printer) output is attached to the end of the open entry, until an sp-close command or an sp-assign command is issued.
The sp-tapeout command retrieves (inputs) reports previously spooled to magnetic media and directs output to the spooler. The spooler redirects the file according to the options currently specified in sp-assign.
The ssample command creates and sorts a temporary select-list of the first n items in a file that match the specified criteria. This command is useful when testing a small number of items. For example, testing 100 items in a file rather than processing all 10,000 items.
The start.rtc BASIC program initiates the system’s real-time clock. This happens automatically during the boot process, provided a real-time clock is present. If one is not present, the current time is requested from the person standing closest to the console.
The startptr command activates and initializes up to 2048 printers. The actual number of printers supported depends on the hardware configuration. If the status of the printer is active, startptr has no effect.
The startshp command starts a shared printer under UNIX. The output of the D3 printer process is routed to the UNIX spooler. This command combines the startptr command and the necessary assignfq command.
The stopptr command stops the specified printer at the end of the current print job. If the printer is inactive, it stops immediately. If it is active, it stops at the end of the current print file. If the current print file is specified to print multiple copies, the printer stops after the completion of the current copy. Sys2 privileges are required to use stopptr. Executing this command without specifying a printer attempts to stop printer 0.
