EDITOR



EDITOR

     Starts the EDIT/3000 subsystem, which is used to create and
     manipulate ASCII text or program files.  (CM)

SYNTAX

     EDITOR [listfile]


PARAMETERS

listfile             Actual file designator of file to receive any
                     output resulting from EDIT/3000 commands LIST and
                     XPLAIN when the OFFLINE option is specified.  It
                     can be any ASCII output file.  The formal file
                     designator and default is EDTLIST. If specified
                     with no device parameter, default device is LP.

NOTE

The formal file designator used in this command (EDTLIST) cannot be
backreferenced as an actual file designator in the command parameter
list.  For further information,  refer to the "IMPLICIT FILE COMMANDS
FOR SUBSYSTEMS" discussion of the MPE/iX FILE command.


OPERATION

     The EDITOR command runs the EDIT/3000 subsystem.

     This command may be issued from a session or job.  It may not
     be used from a program unless the user or the program have
     Process Handling (PH) capability.  It may not be used from a
     BREAK.  Pressing [Break] suspends the execution of this
     command.  Entering RESUME continues the execution.


EXAMPLE(S)

     To run EDIT/3000 during a session and specify a line printer
     (device class LP) as the list device for offline output,
     enter

     FILE LISTFILE;DEV=LP
     EDITOR *LISTFILE

     Because the listfile is often a line printer, it is often
     defined in an MPE/iX FILE command and backreferenced as in
     the preceding example.
