TYPE command The TYPE command displays the contents of one or more
files on your terminal.
@TYPE (FILE) filespec,...,
filespec is the specification of the file you want to
display on your terminal.
@@subcommand means that after a final comma you can enter
the following optional subcommand:
UNFORMATTED Disables the formatting of
control characters contained
in the file. Normally, the
TYPE command displays the
graphic equivalent for certain
control characters, for
example, ESCAPE as $ and
CTRL/C as ^C. The UNFORMATTED
subcommand causes characters
to be displayed literally,
allowing graphic text (for
example REGIS files) to be
displayed on the terminal.
Entire Contents of Files
In response to the TYPE command the system prints the entire
contents of a file (up to the EOF (end-of-file) pointer),
including blank lines and line numbers if there are any. If
you specify more than one file, the filespec precedes the
contents of each file.
Stopping TYPE Output
To stop the TYPE command, type two CTRL/Cs. A CTRL/O will
also stop the output, but will not stop the processing of
the command or the accumulation of CPU charges. Note that a
pair of CTRL/Os causes the system to skip over part of the
output and continue printing.
COPY for copying files to any device
EDIT for examining specific parts of a file
PERUSE for editing files in read-only mode
PRINT for printing files on the line printer
