SHOW, DEFAULT, Examples
*Conan The Librarian
1.$ SHOW DEFAULT DISK1:[ALAMO] $ SET DEFAULT DISK5:[SKONETSKI.SOURCES] $ SHOW DEFAULT DISK5:[SKONETSKI.SOURCES] The SHOW DEFAULT command in this example displays the current default device and directory names. The SET DEFAULT command changes these defaults, and the next SHOW DEFAULT command displays the new default device and directory. 2.$ SET DEFAULT NOSUCH:[NOWAY] $ SHOW DEFAULT NOSUCH:[NOWAY] %DCL-I-INVDEF, NOSUCH:[NOWAY] does not exist In this example, the default has been set to a nonexistent device and directory. An error message is displayed. 3.$ DEFINE/TRANSLATION_ATTRIBUTES=CONCEALED XYZ WORK:[INVOICES.] $ SET DEFAULT XYZ:[HESHELMAN] $ SHOW DEFAULT XYZ:[HESHELMAN] In this example, a logical name, XYZ, is defined to represent WORK:[INVOICES]. The /TRANSLATION_ATTRIBUTES=CONCEALED qualifier tells the system not to display the translation of XYZ in file specifications. Thus, the SHOW DEFAULT command displays the logical name XYZ and not its translation. 4.$ SET DEFAULT WRK:[SCHENKENBERGER] $ SHOW DEFAULT WRK:[SCHENKENBERGER] $ DEFINE KUDOS WRK:[SCHENKENBERGER.TEMP1],WRK:[SCHENKENBERGER.TEMP2] $ SET DEFAULT KUDOS $ SHOW DEFAULT KUDOS:[SCHENKENBERGER] In this example, the logical name KUDOS is defined as a search list containing the directories [SCHENKENBERGER.TEMP1] and [SCHENKENBERGER.TEMP2] on device WRK. The SET DEFAULT command equates this search list logical name with the logical name SYS$DISK. The subsequent SHOW DEFAULT command displays the search list logical name along with its equivalence strings. Because the directory field has not been explicitly specified, the original [SCHENKENBERGER] directory remains in effect as the current default directory; however, unless the current default directory syntax () is explicitly used, all file references are to those directories contained in the search list.
