PASCALPREP



PASCALPREP

     Compiles and prepares 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 PASXLLK. (CM)

SYNTAX

     PASCALPREP [textfile][,progfile][,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 $STDIN.

progfile Actual file designator of the program file to which
the prepared program segments are written. When
progfile is omitted, the MPE Segmenter creates the
program file, which will be stored in the temporary
file domain as $OLDPASS. If you do create your own
program file, you must do so in one of two ways

o By using the MPE/iX BUILD command, and specifying
a file code of 1029 or PROG, and a numextents value
of 1. This file is then used by the PREP command.

o By specifying a nonexistent file in the progfile
parameter, in which case a job/session temporary
file of the correct size and type is created.

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.

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 PASCALPREP command compiles and prepares a
Compatibility Mode Pascal/V program into a program file on
disk. If you do not specify textfile, MPE/iX expects input
from the current input device. If you do not specify
listfile, MPE/iX sends the listing output to the formal file
designator PASLIST (default $STDLIST). The USL file
$OLDPASS, created during compilation, is a temporary file
passed directly to the MPE Segmenter. You may access it
only if you do not use the default for progfile. This is
because the MPE 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)

     The following example compiles and prepares a Pascal/V program
entered through your standard input device and stores the
prepared program segments in the file $OLDPASS. The listing
will be printed on your standard list device.

PASCALPREP

To compile and prepare a Pascal/V source program from the
source file PASCSRC, storing it in PASCPROG, and sending the
listing to your standard list device, enter:

PASCALPREP PASCSRC,PASCPROG
