SPEED



SPEED

     Sets the input and output speed for the user's terminal.  (CM)

SYNTAX


SPEED newinspeed, newoutspeed

or

SET SPEED = newspeed

PARAMETERS


newinspeed The new input speed in characters-per-second (CPS).
The input and output speeds must always be equal.
Acceptable values for newinspeed and newoutspeed
are 30, 120, 240, 480, 960, and 1920. Values no
longer supported are 11, 150, and 60.

newoutspeed The new output speed in characters-per-second
(CPS). The input and output speeds must always be
equal. Acceptable values for newinspeed and
newoutspeed are 30, 120, 240, 480, 960, and 1920.
Values no longer supported are 11, 150, and 60.

newspeed Used with the SET command to specify both input and
output speeds, which are equal. Refer to the SET command.

OPERATION

     MPE/iX automatically senses the input/output speed of a
     terminal when you log on at that terminal.  If your terminal
     has speed adjustment controls, you can change the input and
     output speeds after logon with the SPEED command.  This
     command is not valid for terminals that operate at only one speed.

     Since terminal input and output speeds are the same, it's no
     longer necessary to specify them individually as it was in MPE V/E.

     When the command is entered, MPE/iX displays the following
     message at the old output speed

     CHANGE SPEED AND INPUT "MPE"

     Manually change the speed control on the terminal and verify
     the new speed by entering

     MPE [Return]

     If the characters "MPE" cannot be verified, system assumes
     that the terminal is to continue at the old speed.  (To
     continue, you must reset the terminal control to the old
     speed.)  Note that on Hewlett-Packard terminals the baud
     rate is Characters Per Second (CPS) multiplied by 10.  When
     you select the baud rate at which you choose to operate, you
     must, therefore, divide the rate by 10, and enter that value
     with the SPEED command.

     You can also change the terminal speed programmatically by
     using the FCONTROL intrinsic.  Refer to the Intrinsics
     Reference Manual (32650-90028).

     This command may be issued from a session, but not from a
     job.  It may be issued in BREAK or from a program.  Pressing
     [Break] has no effect on this command.


EXAMPLE(S)

     To change the input and output speeds to 240 CPS (2400
     baud), enter

     SPEED 240,240

     or

     SET SPEED=2400

     CHANGE SPEED AND INPUT "MPE"
     {

     Manually change the speed and enter MPE.  The { is a random
     character.
