If itemlist* is not specified, the default list item will be updated: %user, where user is the user-id.

See the "el" command for using the Update processor to update saved lists.
Syntax edit-list {file.reference} {itemlist*} {(options)}

p Directs the output to the system printer, via the spooler.

s Suppresses the display of line numbers, in normal edit mode, or suppresses object code display when the assembly formatter is "on". Equivalent to the "s" editor command.
