     Gives a user operator control of a device class.  (CM)

SYNTAX

     ASSOCIATE devclass


PARAMETERS

devclass            The name of a logical device class configured
                    during SYSGEN.


OPERATION


This command links a device class, such as LP, to an
individual user on the system. The user may then execute
any valid operator command for a device in the device class
and will receive the status messages for the devices in that
device class on $STDLIST. For example, a remote printer may
be associated with a terminal, so that messages concerning
the printer will go to the terminal, not the system console.

Before a user can be associated, the system manager must run
a utility program (the version of ASOCTBL.PUB.SYS that
matches your operating system) in order to create a device
class/user association table. This table defines which
users may be associated with which device classes. At any
given time, only one user may be associated with a given
device class. If the device belongs in several device
classes, only one of those device classes may be associated.

This command may be issued from a session, program, or in
BREAK. It may not be used from a job. Pressing [Break] has
no effect on this command.

The operator commands which are made available to users
through the ASSOCIATE command are

ABORTIO OUTFENCE
ACCEPT REFUSE
ALTSPOOLFILE REPLY
DELETESPOOLFILE RESUMESPOOL
DISCRPS SHUTQ
DOWN SPOOLER
DOWNLOAD STARTSPOOL

Both the system supervisor and the user may DISASSOCIATE a
user from a device. In addition, a user implicitly
disassociates a device when logging off.
