The LOCATE command changes the default device list of the job,
making devices at other ANF-10 nodes available to your job. For
example, if you want to use the devices at node FRATZ for your
job, you can issue the following command:
Thereafter, the default I/O devices used will be those on node
FRATZ. Note that terminal and disk I/O are not affected by this
The LOCATE command does not change the location of your job; the
job runs on the node on which the job was started.
Where: node-id is the name or number of the ANF-10 node at
which you want I/O to be processed.
An argument of 0 locates your job at the node where the
job's command interpreter is. If you do not specify
the node-id, the default is your physical node/station.
Leaves your terminal at monitor level.
Is valid only in networks or in systems with a remote station.
Does not destroy your core image.
If the LOCATE succeeds, the system prints a message in the form:
NODE node-name (node-num) sys-id date LOCATED
Where node-name is the name of the node, node-num is the number
of the node, sys-id is the system identification, and date is the
date the system was last reloaded.
If the node specified is not currently in communication with the
network, the following message is printed:
%NODE(x) LOCATED BUT OFF-LINE
