Compiles, prepares, and executes a Compatibility Mode SPL/V program.
SPL/V is not part of the 900 Series HP 3000 Computer System
Fundamental Operating Software and must be purchased separately. (CM)
textfile Actual file designator of the input file from which
the source program is read. This can be any ASCII
input file. The formal file designator is SPLTEXT.
Default is $STDIN.
listfile Actual file designator of the file to which the
program listing is written. This can be any ASCII
output file. The formal file designator is SPLLIST.
Default is $STDLIST.
masterfile Actual file designator of the master file that is
merged against textfile to produce a composite
source. This can be any ASCII input file. Formal
file designator is SPLMAST. Default is that the
master file is not read; input is read from
textfile, or from $STDIN if textfile is not
specified. If two files being merged have identical
line numbers, the lines from textfile or from $STDIN
will overwrite those in masterfile.
newfile Actual file designator of the file produced by
merging textfile and masterfile. This can be any
ASCII output file. The formal file designator is
SPLNEW. Default is that no file is written.
The formal file designators used in this command (SPLTEXT, SPLLIST,
SPLMAST, SPLNEW) cannot be backreferenced as actual file designators in
the command parameter list. For further information, refer to the
"IMPLICIT FILE COMMANDS FOR SUBSYSTEMS" discussion of the MPE/iX FILE command.
quotedstring A sequence of ASCII characters bounded by a pair of
single quotation marks (apostrophes) or by double
quotation marks. If you want a quotation to appear
within quotedstring, the quotation and its quotation
marks must also be bounded by quotation marks. For
example, to insert "and" into a quotedstring, it
must appear as ""and"". Similarly, 'and' must
appear as ''and''. The maximum length of the
string, including delimiters, is 255 characters.
For SPL to recognize quotedstring, a dollar sign ($)
must follow the quotation marks at the beginning of
the quotedstring. This feature is used to specify
compiler options which will appear in front of the
This command compiles, prepares, and executes an SPL program.
If textfile is omitted, MPE/iX expects input from your
standard input device. This command creates a temporary User
Subprogram Library (USL) file ($NEWPASS) that you cannot
access and a temporary program file that you can access under
the name $OLDPASS.
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.
To compile, prepare, and execute an SPL program entered from
your standard input device, and have the program listing
sent to your standard list device, enter

the disk file SOURCE and send the resulting program listing
to the disk file LISTFL, enter
