Filenames are of the form:


The default device is DSK:.  the default output name is  the  same  as
the  input  name.   The  default output extension is a function of the
input extension as follows:

     input ext ...   output ext ...   /TYPESET

        .RNO             .MEM           .TPO
        .RNB             .BLB           .TPB
        .RNC             .CCO           .TPC
        .RND             .DOC           .TPD
        .RNE             .ERR           .TPE
        .RNH             .HLP           .TPH
        .RNL             .PLM           .TPL
        .RNM             .MAN           .TPM
        .RNP             .OPR           .TPP
        .RNS             .STD           .TPS
        none             .MEM           .TP
        other            .MEM           .TP

and if no input extension is supplied, all of  these  are  tried,  the
first  one found being processed.  If the input extension turns out to
be that of the source file to a  compiler  (.ALG,  .BAD,  .BLI,  .B11,
.FAI,  .FOR,  .F40,  .MAC,  .N,  .PAL,  .P11), then the default output
extension is .PLM and a default /SELECTION  is  set  automatically  to
match the commenting conventions of that langauge.

the monitor command ".HELP RUNINP".
