filename.pointer-file

Command filename.pointer-file File/Access: General
Applicable release versions: AP, R83
Category Access: General (65)
Description the default file containing items from "save-list" commands.

The item-id defaults to "%user-id" (percent sign concatenated with the user-id) when not specified with the list process verbs such as "save-list" or "edit-list".

The "pointer-file" resides on the "dm" or "sysprog" account. Separate "pointer-files" can be created on any "account". When using a "pointer-file" on any account other than "dm", the verbs associated with the file need to be modified to point to the correct account. "pf" is a q-pointer to "pointer-file".

In AP, "save lists" can be saved in ANY file.

In R83, "pointer-file" is a "dc" type file. In AP, "pointer-file" is a "d" type file.
