The /DIAGNOSTICS qualifier controls the creation of a diagnostics file containing messages and diagnostic information for use by the Compaq Language-Sensitive Editor (LSE). The format of the /DIAGNOSTICS qualifier is as follows: /[NO]DIAGNOSTICS[=file-spec] LSE uses the diagnostics file to display diagnostic error messages and to position the cursor on the line and column where a source error exists. If you do not supply a file specification with the /DIAGNOSTICS qualifier, the diagnostics file has the same name as its corresponding source file and a default file type of .DIA. All other file specification attributes depend on the placement of the qualifier in the command. The default is /NODIAGNOSTICS.
