PASCALGO



PASCALGO

     Compiles, prepares, and executes a Compatibility Mode
Pascal/V program. Pascal/V is not part of the 900 Series HP
3000 Computer System Fundamental Operating Software and must
be purchased separately. The Native Mode equivalent of this
command is PASXLGO. (CM)

SYNTAX

     PASCALGO [textfile][,listfile]
[;INFO=quotedstring]

PARAMETERS

textfile            Actual file designator of the input file from which
the source program is read. This can be any ASCII
input file. Formal file designator is PASTEXT.
Default is $STDLIST.

listfile Actual file designator of the file to which the
program listing is written. This can be any ASCII
output file. Formal file designator is PASLIST.
Default is $STDLIST. $STDLIST is usually your
terminal if you are running Pascal/V interactively,
or the printer if you are running a batch job.

NOTE

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

quotedstring A sequence of characters between two single
quotation marks (apostrophes) or between two double
quotation marks. You may use the delimiter as part
of the string so long as the delimiter appears
twice. Any occurrence of two single quotation marks
in a row, or two double quotes in a row, is
considered part of the string, and, therefore, not
the terminating delimiter.

INFO=quotedstring is used in the Pascal/V
programming language to pass initial compiler
options to a program. Pascal/V brackets the
quotedstring with dollar signs and places it
before the first line of source code in the text file.

OPERATION

     The PASCALGO command compiles, prepares, and executes a
Compatibility Mode Pascal/V program. If textfile is omitted,
MPE/iX expects input from your standard input device. If
you do not specify listfile, MPE/iX sends the program
listing to the formal file designator PASLIST (default is $STDLIST).

The USL file created during the compilation is the system-
defined temporary file $OLDPASS, which is passed directly to
the MPE Segmenter. It can only be accessed if you do not
use the default for progfile. This is because the Segmenter
also uses $OLDPASS to store the prepared program segments,
overwriting any existing temporary file of the same name.

This command may be issued from a session, job, or program. It may
not be used in BREAK. Pressing [Break] suspends the execution of
this command. Entering RESUME continues the execution.

EXAMPLE(S)

     To compile, prepare, and execute a Pascal/V program entered
from your standard input device, with the program listing
sent to your standard list device, enter:

PASCALGO

To compile, prepare, and execute a Pascal/V program from the
disk file PASCSRC and send the program listing to the file
LISTFILE, enter:

PASCALGO PASCSRC,LISTFILE
