Compiles, links, and executes an HP Pascal/iX program. HP
Pascal/iX is not part of the 900 Series HP 3000 Computer
System Fundamental Operating Software and must be purchased separately.
textfile The name of the text file that contains the source
code to be compiled. This is an ASCII file that you
prepare with an editor such as EDIT/V. The formal
file designator is PASTEXT.
If you are running HP Pascal/iX from your terminal,
you will probably specify a disk textfile. If you
do not specify textfile, then the default file is
$STDIN. $STDIN is the current input device, usually
When textfile is your terminal, you can enter source
code interactively in response to the ">" prompt.
When you have entered all the source code, type a
colon (:) in response to the prompt to end the
The source code to be compiled can be a program or a
list of modules.
listfile The name of the file on which the compiler writes
the program listing. It can be any ASCII file. The
default is $STDLIST, which is usually the terminal,
if you are running HP Pascal/iX from a terminal; it
is usually the printer, if you are running a batch
job. The formal file designator is PASLIST.
If your terminal is both textfile and listfile, the
compiler does not write the program listing on the terminal.
If listfile is $NULL or a file other than $STDLIST,
the compiler displays on $STDLIST those lines that
libfile The name of the HP Pascal/iX library file that the
compiler searches if a search path is not specified
with the compiler option SEARCH. The default is
PASLIB in your group and account.
quotedstring A parameter for the compiler. It is a quoted string
of no more than 132 characters (including the single
or double quote marks that enclose it).
The quotedstring string used in the HP Pascal/iX
programming language to pass initial compiler
options to the compiler. HP Pascal/iX brackets the
quotedstring string with dollar signs ($) and places
the string before the first line of source code in
the text file.
The formal file designators used in this command (PASTEXT, PASLIB,
PASLIST) cannot be backreferenced as actual file designators in the
command parameter list.
This command compiles, links, and executes an HP Pascal/iX
program. If textfile is omitted, the compiler expects input
from your standard input device. If you do not specify
listfile, the compiler sends the program listing to the
formal file designator PASLIST (default is $STDLIST).
The object file created during compilation is a system-
defined temporary file, $NEWPASS, which is passed directly
to the LinkEditor as $OLDPASS. The LinkEditor purges the
object file and writes the linked program to $OLDPASS, which
is then executed and may be executed repeatedly.
This command is implemented as a command file. If you set the HPPATH
variable to null (SETVAR HPPATH ""), the command file will not be
executed, and the command will fail.
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.
