CONTINUE



CONTINUE

     Overrides job errors so that the job or user command (command
     file or udc) continues executing.

SYNTAX

     CONTINUE


PARAMETERS

     NONE.


OPERATION

     THE CONTINUE COMMAND PERMITS A JOB OR SESSION TO CONTINUE
     EVEN THOUGH THE COMMAND IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING CONTINUE
     RESULTS IN AN ERROR (WITH ACCOMPANYING ERROR MESSAGE).  IT
     IS NOT NEEDED IN A SESSION, BECAUSE SESSIONS DO NOT
     TERMINATE WHEN A COMMAND ERROR OCCURS.  THE CONTINUE
     COMMAND IS TYPICALLY USED IN THE LINE PRECEDING ANY COMMAND
     SUSPECTED OF CAUSING THE JOB OR USER COMMAND TO ABORT.  IF
     AN ERROR DOES OCCUR, THE JOB OR USER COMMAND WILL CONTINUE
     TO RUN, AND THE ERROR MESSAGE WILL BE REPORTED.  THE
     VARIABLE CIERROR WILL CONTAIN THE ERROR NUMBER.

THE CONTINUE COMMAND "PROTECTS" ONLY THE NEXT COMMAND.
HOWEVER, IF THE NEXT COMMAND IS A USER COMMAND (COMMAND FILE
OR UDC) AND AN ERROR OCCURS ANYWHERE WITHIN IT, THEN
EXECUTION RESUMES AT THE COMMAND FOLLOWING THE USER COMMAND.
IN EFFECT, CONTINUE TREATS A USER COMMAND AS A SIMPLE,
INDIVISIBLE COMMAND.

YOU MAY USE THE HPAUTOCONT VARIABLE TO PRODUCE A GLOBAL
"CONTINUE."

THIS COMMAND MAY BE ISSUED IN A SESSION, JOB, OR PROGRAM, OR
IN BREAK. PRESSING [BREAK] HAS NO EFFECT ON THIS COMMAND.

EXAMPLE(S)

     IF YOU ANTICIPATE A POSSIBLE ERROR RESULTING FROM THE
     COMMAND RUN MYPROG, AND WISH TO OVERRIDE THIS ERROR AND
     ALLOW THE JOB TO CONTINUE EXECUTING, ENTER

     !JOB MAC.PUBS
     !CONTINUE
     !RUN MYPROG
     !IF JCW <= WARN THEN
! RUN MYPROG2
!ENDIF
!EOJ
