TELLOP


TELLOP

     Sends a message to the system console.

SYNTAX


TELLOP [text]


PARAMETER


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:

FROM/sessionid

Sessionid is the session identification number.

OPERATION

     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.

NOTE:

If the console has been reassigned from the physical console device to
another terminal, that assigned terminal will receive the TELLOP message.
