tcl.decatalog Verb: Access/TCL


Command tcl.decatalog Verb: Access/TCL
Applicable release versions: AP, R83
Category TCL (746)
Description removes the compiled Pick/BASIC object code of the specified item(s) from the DICT of the specified file, and removes the corresponding verb entry (or entries) from the MD of the current account.

A program does not have to be previously cataloged to be decataloged. If the program verb does not exist in the master dictionary, "decatalog" still deletes the object code.

Once a program item has compiled successfully, an "object-code pointer-item" is placed in the dictionary level of the file. This "pointer" item defines the virtual location where the object code is actually stored. The name of the object pointer item is the same as that of the source program itself. It has the following format:


attr 1 first frame of contiguous block of frames reserved for object item.
attr2 number of contiguous frames used to store the object.
Syntax decatalog file.reference itemlist*
decatalog bp enter.supplier
[242] 'enter.supplier' decataloged!
