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, .BAS, .BLI,  .B10,  .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 language.
