The R command loads a core image from the system device (SYS:)
and starts it at the location specified within the file (.JBSA in
the Job Data Area. See the TOPS-10 Monitor Calls Manual.) This
command is the same as RUN SYS:file.ext. The R command is used
to run a system program that does not have an operating system
command to run it.
This command clears all user core. However, programs should not
count on this action and should explicitly clear those areas of
core that are expected to contain zeros (that is, programs should
be self-initializing). This action allows programs to be
restarted by a CTRL/C, START sequence without another R command.
R file.EXE[directory] core/switch
Where: file.EXE is the file name of a file stored on the SYS:
Old-style SAVE files (.SAV, .HGH, .SHR) can be
run by the R command. However, .EXE files are
recommended over SAVE files.
[directory] is a directory specification. If a
directory specification is present in the command
string, it overrides the assumed SYS: device.
Directory paths are described help file DIRPAT.
core is the amount of core needed to run the program.
If you do not specify core, the default is the minimum
amount of core needed to load the program into memory.
If you do not specify an argument, the program
currently in memory is run.
/switch is one of the following options:
/START:n,,addr Specifies the octal section number (n)
and address (addr) at which the core
image starts. Valid section numbers
are 0-37, octal.
/USE:n Specifies the octal section number (n)
in which the core image runs.
Destroys your core image.
Run the SYS:SETSRC.EXE program
Use CTRL/C to exit.
