     Defines the welcome message.  (CM)

SYNTAX


WELCOME [welcfile]

PARAMETERS


welcfile An ASCII file containing the new welcome message.

OPERATION


The operator uses the WELCOME command to compose the
message that will be transmitted to users when they initiate
jobs and sessions. The message is retained when you
START RECOVER or START NORECOVER the system, or choose the UPDATE
restart option.

To define the welcome message, enter WELCOME and press
[Return]. When the # prompt is displayed, begin entering
the text of the message. Any number of lines may be used,
but the length of any line cannot exceed 72 characters. To
terminate the message and complete the command, enter
[Return] at the # prompt.

To define the welcome message from an EDITOR file, specify
the welcfile parameter. Subsequent changes to the EDITOR
file will not affect the welcome message until another
WELCOME command is issued with the file name specified.

If no parameter is specified, you are prompted to enter the
new message interactively.

To delete the old welcome message, issue the WELCOME
command and press [Return] at the # prompt.

This command may be issued from a session, job, in BREAK, or
from a program. Pressing [Break] has no effect on this
command. It may be issued only from the console, unless it is
distributed to users with the ALLOW command.

EXAMPLE(S)

     To create a multi-line welcome message, enter

     WELCOME
     #WELCOME TO THE HP3000 COMPUTER SYSTEM.
     #FILES WILL BE STORED EACH DAY BETWEEN 6AM AND 7AM.
     #[Return]
