ABORT



ABORT

     Aborts the current program or operation.

SYNTAX

     ABORT

PARAMETERS

     None.

OPERATION

     After you suspend a program or MPE/iX command operation by
pressing [Break], the ABORT command terminates that program
or operation. Programs do not terminate while critical
system code is executing on their behalf, but will terminate
immediately following execution of that code. The ABORT
command is available only from a session and only during
BREAK, but it does not disrupt the session. Some operations
abort immediately upon entering BREAK without requiring the
ABORT command. An ABORT command results in the Job
Control Word (JCW) being set to the SYSTEM 0 state. For a
discussion of Job Control Words, refer SETJCW.

This command may be issued from a session (in BREAK only).
It is not executable from a job or a program. Pressing
[Break] has no effect on this command.

EXAMPLE(S)

     To abort the current operation, enter:
