Command tcl.:files Verb: Access/TCL
Applicable release versions: R83 2.2, AP 6.1
Category TCL (746)
Description initiates a full restore as an alternative to reloading from the "options" prompt.

The proper media type must be indicated with the appropriate "set-" command prior to using this command.

First, the system goes into single user mode as if "maxusers (s" was entered. Then, each line is wrapped up as if a "shutdown" command was entered. All workspace is released and the overflow table is cleared. The user is prompted for reallocation.

Do you wish to disable file reallocation (y/<n>)?:

This question can be bypassed by using either ":files (n" or ":files (r".

Then, you are prompted to insert the media.

Load reel #1 and press return:

This prompt can be bypassed by using ":files (l".
Syntax :files {(options}
Options l Skip the "Load reel #1 and press return" message.
n Skip the "Do you wish to disable file reallocation" message answering "yes" so that files are NOT resized.
r Skip "Do you wish to disable file reallocation" message answering "no" so that files are resized.
z Skip Incremental and Transaction log prompts answering "n" to each which allows generating indexes to automatically take place.
