Deletes one or more MPE/iX variables.
DELETEVAR varname [,varname]...[,varname]
This command follows the optional MPE/iX command line syntax.
VARNAME The name of the variable to be deleted.
Deletes a specific MPE/iX variable, or all variables
specified by a pattern. If you specify more than one
varname, you must separate them with commas. You cannot
delete predefined (system, read only) variables.
You may use wildcard characters, @, #, ?, and  to specify
a set or range of values.
@ Specifies zero or more alphanumeric characters, or
the underbar character (_). Used by itself, it
specifies all possible combinations of such
characters. Used with other characters it indicates
all the possible names that include the specified
characters (@ABC@ = all names that include ABC
anywhere in the name).
# Specifies one numeric character. A###@ = all names
that begin with A followed by any three digits,
followed by any combination of 0 to 251 alphanumeric
(or underbar) characters.
? Specifies one alphanumeric character. A?# specifies
all three-character names that begin with A,
followed by an alphanumeric, followed by a digit.
 Specifies a set or range of characters. The set may
appear anywhere in the name. This range
specification is not case sensitive [A-K] is the
same as [a-k]. If you specify a null set such as [k-
a] then MPE/iX will report an error.
@[abc]@# = All names containing A, B, or C and
ending in a single digit.
[a-k]@ = All names that begin with any one of the
letters a through k.
[n-a] = Is not valid and would be flagged as an error.
This command is available in a session, job, in BREAK, or
from a program. Pressing [Break] has no effect on this command.
