Compiles and links 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 interactive input.
The source code to be compiled can be a program or a
list of modules.
progfile The name of the program file on which the MPE/iX
linker writes the linked program. The default is $NEWPASS.
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 $STDLIST those lines that
libfile The name of the HP Pascal/iX library file that the
compiler searches if a search path is not specified
with the compiler option SEARCH. The default is
PASLIB in your group and account.
quotedstring A parameter for the compiler. It is a quoted string
of no more than 132 characters (including the single
or double quote marks that enclose it).
The quotedstring string is used to pass
initialcompiler options to the Pascal/iX compiler.
HP Pascal/iXbrackets the quotedstring string with
dollar signs($) and places the string before the
first line of the 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 and links an HP Pascal/iX program into a file
on disk. If you do not specify textfile, the compiler expects
input from the standard input device. If you do not specify
listfile, the compiler sends the program listing output to the
formal file designator PASLIST (default $STDLIST).
The object file created during compilation is a system-
defined temporary file, $NEWPASS, which is passed directly
to the LinkEditor as $OLDPASS. LinkEditor overwrites
progfile and writes the linked program to $OLDPASS, if
progfile is omitted, which can then be executed.
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.
The following example compiles and links an HP Pascal/iX
program entered through your standard input device and
stores the linked program in the file $OLDPASS. The listing
will be printed on your standard list device.
To compile and link an HP Pascal/iX source program from the
source file SOURCE, storing it in PROG, and sending the
listing to your standard list device, enter
