Sends a message to the system console.
text Message text, preceded by a space and consisting of
any string of ASCII characters. Default is that no
text is printed; however, MPE/iX still prints the following:
Sessionid is the session identification number.
This command sends a message to the system console. The
message text appears on the system console, preceded by the
time it was transmitted and your job/session number. Like
messages transmitted between users (TELL command), this
message is printed as soon as possible without interrupting
any console input/output currently in progress. The message
can be sent to the system console, even if no session is logged on.
This command may be issued from a session, job, in BREAK, or
from a program. Pressing [Break] has no effect on this command.
If the console has been reassigned from the physical console device to
another terminal, that assigned terminal will receive the TELLOP message.
To ask the system operator to mount a tape, enter:
