User-Definable Commands

User-definable commands are available at both the  system  programming

timesharing session, or you can  include  the  DECLARE  command  in  a

execute the FILCOM program as follows:


You can also use DECLARE to display  your  job's  command  list.   The

Use the COMPAR command.  Use CTRL/T to display the  current  state  of
your  job,  including  the  name of the program that is running.  Note
that, although CTRL/T  is  shown  here,  it  does  not  echo  on  your
terminal.  CTRL/Z is used to exit FILCOM and return to the monitor.
