CREDIR.DOC -- changes from version 1 to 2
Copyright 1974, Digital Equipment Corp., Maynard, Mass.
1.1 This release fixes a bug associated with DATE-75. It
also implements two suggestions received on SPRs.
The first adds a switch /NAME (defaults to ersatz
name) which is used to specify the name for .RBSPL.
The second improves the error message which results
if a non-privileged user tries to create a UFD.
1.2 This program will run on any 5- or 6-series monitor
and has been tested under 6.01/5.07. It depends upon
SCAN version 7 and WILD version 7. It has no DATE-75
dependency and has no known deficiencies. It cures
all SPRs received through September, 1974
1.3 CREDIR is documented in this file and in the software
notebook descriptions of the 6.01/5.07 monitor.
1.4 FUNCTION OF CREDIR
This program is designed to create directories in an
easy and reliable fashion. It will construct SFDs on
all structures selected including any higher level
directories needed. If run under [1,2], it will
create UFDs on any selected structure or set of
structures. The user can specify the quotas for
these UFDs via either switches or a dialogue. CREDIR
is particularly useful for creating the ersatz
directories supported by 6.01/5.07, since these are
not created by the disk refresher. All the operator
need do is specify the names of the ersatz devices he
wants created and CREDIR will create them on all
structures for that ersatz device (typically the SYS
search list). As each directory is created, the user
is informed of the name, unit, and protection.
CREDIR.DOC -- changes from version 1 to 2 Page 2
101 Fix a DATE-75 deficiency which would cause the
created directory's creation date to be bad after the
first directory created.
102 (SPR 10-14,113) Add switch /NAME: which takes a
possibly quoted sixbit string of one word as its
value. If not specified, dialogue mode will prompt
for it. If not set by the user when doing an ersatz
device, the default is the ersatz device name. If
set for any of these reasons then the spool name
(.RBSPL) of the bottom directory created will be set
to the specified name. This will print in DIRECTory
listings, giving a mnemonic.
103 (SPR 10-13,898) Improve the message when a
non-privileged user tries to create a UFD to be
?CRRMBC MUST BE [1,2] TO CREATE A UFD.
3.0 KNOWN DEFICIENCIES
4.0 INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
CREDIR is assembled with C.MAC as a universal file
and is loaded with SCAN.REL, WILD.REL, and
HELPER.REL. It should then be SSAVEd on SYS:. There
is also a short help file.
5.1 Add a way to put ersatz devices on only a selected
set of file structures.
5.2 Observe /NOCREATE if set.

Extracts from Version 1
2.0 EXTERNAL DESCRIPTION
To use CREDIR, simply RUN it from SYS:. It will ask
for the name of a directory. You have three choices:
ersatz device mode, switch mode, and dialogue mode.
To enter dialogue mode, respond to the question with
a device and no directory (but not an ersatz device).
CREDIR will then loop requesting a directory. Each
time, respond with the directory name in square
brackets. The standard UFD project and programmer
defaults can be used. Thus, to create a subdirectory
named MAIL directly under your own UFD, simply type
"[,,MAIL]". CREDIR will then prompt for the name;
usually you will want to ignore this, so respond with
a carriage return. If you want to specify a mnemonic
name, give it (inside double quotes if special
characters are included). CREDIR will then prompt
for the protection; simply answer with the
protection in octal. CREDIR will type out the name,
unit, and protection of each directory. If you are
under [1,2] and specify a UFD, you will also be
prompted for logged in and logged out quotas.
Respond with a decimal number (if in thousands, you
can say 10K for 10000, etc.). If you give a null
response to the quotas, the quota will be set to
infinity. You can terminate the loop asking for
directories with either ^C or ^Z.
To use CREDIR in switch mode, respond to the original
prompt with a directory and optionally a device. You
can specify the name with the switch /NAME: followed
by the name as a quoted string. You can specify the
protection with the switch /PROTECTION: followed by
the protection in octal. If you are creating a UFD
from [1,2], you can also specify quotas by the
switches /IN: and /OUT: followed by a decimal
number (again, the suffix K means thousand). CREDIR
will respond with the name of the directory being
created, the unit, and the protection. It will then
re-prompt for another directory. To exit from the
loop, type ^C or ^Z.
To use CREDIR in ersatz device mode, respond to the
original question with the name of the ersatz device
you wish to create. Don't bother specifying a
directory since CREDIR will ignore it anyway. CREDIR
will respond with the names of the structures, etc.,
units, and protection used for the ersatz device.
CREDIR.DOC -- changes from version 1 to 2 Page 4
The default name will be the same as the ersatz
device. The default protection will be the same as
that for SYS:, and the default quotas are infinity.
You can override the defaults by specifying the
switches /NAME, /PROTECTION, /IN, and /OUT.
