The six basic COMPILE-class commands are:
Each COMPILE-class command has a help file.
These commands cause the monitor to run the COMPIL program, which
deciphers the command and constructs new command strings for the
system program (such as, TECO, PIP, FORTRAN). Each time you type the
MAKE or TECO commands, the command with its arguments is written as a
temporary file in memory or on the disk. Therefore, the system can
recall the last file specification you typed. This is an exception to
the requirement that the file name must always be specified. For
example if you type:
You can then later type the following:
instead of the command line:
assuming that you have not issued a TECO command changing the file
name in the interim.
The system also writes the COMPILE, LOAD, EXECUTE, and DEBUG commands,
with their arguments, in two places:
1. In memory in temporary files written on device TMP:. These
are deleted when you log out or when the system crashes.
2. On the disk in a temporary file.
When you use a file specification as the argument to one of these
commands, you can use another of these commands with no argument. The
stored arguments will be used.
Help is also provided for the following constructions: ampersand (@),
plus (+), equal (=), and angle-bracket (< >).
