Description selects items which would fail the selection criteria of a "select".

When an "output" list appears in a select-class statement, the list is built from the contents of the specified attribute(s).
Syntax nselect file.reference {itemlist} {sellist} {outlist} {modlist}
Options
Example
nselect md = "m]" 

which is the same as: 

select md # "m]" 

The following example finds the Pick/BASIC programs which did not compile in 
the "bp" file: 

select bp 
[404] 78 items selected out of 78 items.
nselect dict bp 
[404] 3 items selected out of 78 items.

Assume that there are two files with different number of items in each. Some 
item-ids exist in both files, but not all of them.

First, we select the first file, then we select the items not in the second 
file:

select file1
[404] 767 items selected out of 767 items.
nselect file2
[404] 323 items selected.

The list contains the items in "file1" that are NOT in 
"file2".
