RESUME



RESUME

     Resumes execution of a suspended operation.

SYNTAX

     RESUME


PARAMETERS

     None.


OPERATION

     After a program or MPE/iX command operation is suspended by
     pressing [Break] or by using the CAUSEBREAK intrinsic, the
     RESUME command resumes execution of the operation at the
     point where the execution was suspended.  Note that the
     RESUME command is legitimate only during a BREAK.  Many MPE
     XL commands are aborted rather than suspended by a BREAK,
     and thus cannot be resumed.  (Refer to Table 1-8 for a list
     of nonbreakable commands.)

     If, instead of RESUME, you enter another program command
     (such as EDITOR, FTNXL, or RUN) or one of the nonprogram
     commands (HELLO or BYE), the Command Interpreter prints
     the following message on your terminal  ABORT? (YES/NO).
     If you respond YES to the ABORT? message, the Command
     Interpreter aborts the current (suspended) program and
     executes the command.

     If you respond NO to the ABORT? message, the Command
     Interpreter prints the message COMMAND NOT ALLOWED IN BREAK
     and prompts you for another command.  If you now enter
     RESUME at the prompt, the suspended program continues at the
     point where it was interrupted.  If you had logged on using
     the PARM= option of HELLO to create a process with ;PARM=1
     (or 3), and then have the occasion to respond YES to an
     ABORT? message, MPE/iX will abort the command process and
     log you off immediately.  This is similar to the action of
     MPE V/E with the ()COMMAND LOGON command.

     This command may be issued only while in BREAK.  It may not
     be used from a session (other than while in BREAK mode), job,
     or program.  Pressing [Break] has no effect on this command.
