The SETSRC CUSP is the mechanism by which the user can
manipulate a job's search list. LOGIN automatically creates
a job search list, which includes file structures in the
order they appear in the administrative control file
AUXACC.SYS. Using the MOUNT command, mounted file
structures are appended to the end of the job's search list
by using the SETSRC CUSP which causes an STRUUO UUO to be
executed for his job.
2.0 USING SETSRC
When called (R SETSRC) and loaded, the program SETSRC types
an asterisk (*), then waits for a command from the TTY. The
commands can be:
A Add one or more file structures to the
existing search list. The file structures
(with any switches) are appended to the
beginning or the end of the active search
list according to the following
1. If no asterisk appears in the
specification (e.g., fs1, fs2) or if an
asterisk appears before the file
structure names (e.g., *, fs1, fs2), the
file structures are added to the end of
the search list.
2. If the asterisk follows the file
structure names (e.g., fs1, fs2, *), the
file structures are added to the
beginning of the search list.
3. If the asterisk appears in the middle of
the file structures (e.g., fs1, *, fs2),
the file structures before the asterisk
are added to the beginning of the search
list and the file structures after the
asterisk are added to the end.
If a specified file structure is currently in
the search list, it is removed and then added
in the desired position. Therefore, this
command can be used to reorder the search
C Create a new search list for this job. Any
file structures in the current search list
which are not in the new list are moved to
the passive search list.
CP Create a new default directory path.
CS Create a new system search list (i.e., the
file structure search list for device SYS:).
The user must be logged in under [1,2] to use
H Obtain information about the available
M Modify the current search list and DSK
specification by altering the switch settings
for individual file structures. This command
does not add or remove file structures from
the search list.
R Remove file structures from the search list.
They are placed on the right side of the
FENCE (passive search list) so that on
subsequent LOGOUTs or DISMOUNTs quota limits
can be checked.
T Type the search list of the job.
TP Type the default directory path.
TS Type the system search list.
All of the above commands must be terminated by a carriage
return. The current search list is typed in the form:
where fs1 represents the name of the first file structure
and /s represents a permitted SETSRC command switch.
3.0 SETSRC COMMAND SWITCHES
The switches which can be used in SETSRC command strings are
described in the following table. Switches that modify file
structures must appear immediately after the file structure
name of the structure they modify. Switches which do not
modify file structures may appear anywhere in the command
string. Switch menmonics may be abbreviated as long as the
abbreviation is unique within the context; the minimum
amount of characters which may be used as an abbreviation is
shown, within parentheses, for each switch in the following
SWITCH ABBREVIATION USE
------ ------------ ---
Switches that modify file structures
/CREATE (/C) Allow new files to be created
on the file structure.
/NOCREATE (/NOC) Do not allow new files to be
created on the file structure
when DSK is specified, but
allow files to be superseded.
Files can be created on the
file structure if the user
specifies the file structure
/NOWRITE (/NOW) Do not allow writing on the
file structure for this job
(i.e., the file structure is
/WRITE (/W) Allow writing on the file
The following file structure modification switches are also
recognized in order to be compatible with previous versions
/C Same as /CREATE
/N Same as /NOCREATE
/R Same as /NOWRITE
/W Same as /WRITE
If no switches are specified, /CREATE and /WRITE are
Switches that modify the directory path (used only with the
/NOSCAN (/NOSC) Cancel the scan switch for the
/SCAN (/SC) Set the scan switch for the
Swiches that modify the DSK or SYS specification (used only
with the C and M commands).
/LIB:[proj,prog] (/LI) Set the job's library
directory to the UFD
[proj,prog] and add it to the
user's DSK: specification.
[proj,prog] may be abreviated
as [,] [proj,]=[proj], or
[,prog] in which case the
user's logged-in project
and/or programmer number is
substituted for the missing
argument. This means that if
a file is not found in the
user's directories in his
search list, the library
directory will then be
searched for the file.
/NOLIB (/NOL) Remove the library directory
from the user's DSK:
/NOSYS (/NOS) Remove the SYS: specification
from the user's DSK:
/NONEW (/NON) Remove NEW: ([1,5] directory)
from the user's SYS:
/SYS (/SY) Add the SYS: specification to
the user's DSK:
specification. This means
that if a file cannot be found
in the user's directories in
his search list or in his
library directory (if /LIB:
[proj,prog] has been
specified), the system
directory [1,4] (or [1,5] if
NEW: has been specified) will
then be searched for the file.
/NEW (/NE) Add the directory [1,5] to the
user's SYS: specification.
This means that when the
system directory is searched,
the directory [1,5] will be
searched before the directory
The switches which may be used only with the C and M
commands may also be typed alone as commands. In such cases
they have the same effect as if specified in an M command.
For example NOLIB<CR> is equivalent to M/NOLIB<CR>.
The monitor searches the file structures fs1, fs2,... up to
"FENCE" in the order specified as the meaning for generic
device DSK:. File structures listed before "FENCE" are in
the active search list and file structures listed after
"FENCE" are in the passive search list. The mount count for
each file structure is incremented by 1 for each file
structure in the active and passive search list so that the
operator knows that the user has some intention of using the
If the file structure is software read-only for a job, the
monitor will never write on any of the units in the file
structures; not even the access date or the BAT block will
be updated. The no-create option means that the monitor
will not create a file on this file structure when device
DSK is specified. The user must specify the file structure
name explicitly in order to create a file on a no-create
file structure. In other words /NOCREAT is a permutable
read-only. The expected use for /NOCREAT is by users who
have a small amount of space on a fast file structure, and a
large amount of space in a slow file structure. By
specifying that the small file structure be no-create, all
files are created on the bigger file structures unless the
user specified the small file structure explicitly.
When creating a new search list (or adding or removing file
structures from the current one), the monitor will
automatically append any file structures which were in the
old active or passive list after the FENCE to make a new
passive list. The passive search list is used to "Remember"
all file structures accessed by the user so that quotas may
be checked and enforced when a file strucutre is DISMOUNTED
or the job logs out. In this way the SETSRC CUSP never
decreases the number of file structures which the user has
intention of using, SETSRC only keeps the number the same or
To remove a file structure which you do not intend to use,
employ the DISMOUNT str monitor command.
The commands TP and CP (directory path) may be used only
with the 5.04 or later monitor and then only if the monitor
has the SFD capability (feature switch FTSFD).
The LIB, SYS, etc. commands can only be used in 5.05 or
later monitors and then only if the monitor has the SFD
capability (feature switch FTSFD).
The following is an annotated sxample of how SETSRC is used
to modify a search list.
