tcl.run Verb: Access/TCL

tcl.run

Command tcl.run Verb: Access/TCL
Applicable release versions: AP, R83
Category TCL (746)
Description invokes Pick/BASIC runtime, which attempts to load and execute a compiled Pick/BASIC program.

Programs may be created and modified using UP. They can be run when exiting UP by using the <ctrl>+xr command, which files the item, compiles it, and, if there are no errors, runs it.
Syntax run file.reference item-id {(options)}
Options a Prohibits entry into the Pick/BASIC debugger; aborts on error conditions.

d Enters Pick/BASIC debugger prior to execution. Important when parameters are passed in a "call" statement. The Pick/BASIC debugger may also be called at any time while the program is executing by pressing the <break> key on the terminal

e Enters debugger on any error condition. This option forces the operator to either accept the error by using the debugger, or exit to TCL. The only valid responses in the debugger are "end" or "off". "g" will NOT work.

i Inhibits variable initialization. This option is not recommended due to reliability, transportability, and data integrity reasons. Causes the values in the variable area to be retained when the program is run. This can be specified only when "run" is being executed from the "chain" command. It allows variables to be passed from one program to the next, via the "common" statement.

n Activates nopage function, on output to terminal.

p Directs output from "print" statements to Spooler. (Has same effect as issuing a Pick/BASIC "printer on" statement)

s Suppresses run-time warning messages.
