CTF> SPAWN "SHOW SYSTEM" Spawns a sub-process in which a SHOW SYSTEM command is executed, after which control returns to the parent process. CTF> SPAWN /INPUT=CMDS.COM Spawns a sub-process and executes the DCL commands in CMDS.COM, after which control returns to the parent process. CTF> SPAWN /INPUT=CMDS.COM/OUTPUT=CMDS_OUT.LIS/NOWAIT Also executes the DCL commands in CMDS.COM, but returns control immediately to the parent process without waiting for the spawned sub-process to complete. Any output produced by the sub-process is written to CMDS_OUT.LIS.
