qs-pointer

Command qs-pointer Definition/General
Applicable release versions: AP 6.2
Category General (155)
Description defines a remote file which is saved as if it were local provided the "e" option is used with the save.

The first attribute of such a pointer must be "QS". The second attribute must be null. The third attribute must be a remote host name followed by a colon followed by the remote file name.

Any header information associated with a particular file driver is also saved to guarantee that the data can be restored with the same attributes as it was saved. For example, Unix files are saved with all permissions, ownerships, and update stamps intact.
Syntax

Example
The following qs-pointer causes the file-save to save all accessable files (not 
sub-directories) in the Unix /u/john directory.  Note that the Unix permissions 
of the Pick user must be sufficient to access the data on that Unix directory.  
See the "Unix Files" item for more information on specific options.
