SD in the Fall delivery

Guest on 2nd May 2022 02:07:16 PM

  1. Changes to SD in the Fall delivery:
  2.  
  3. 1. Wildcarding can now be used in directory names.  For example, the
  4.    command "SD .PRO*" would go to the first directory under your cur-
  5.    rent default, whose name begins with "PRO".
  6.  
  7. 2. The "SD \" and "SD >" operations will not flow from one master dir-
  8.    ectory into the adjacent one.
  9.  
  10. 3. Options now exist to either (a.) not automatically execute SDENTRY
  11.    and SDEXIT procedures, or (b.) execute them, with a notice that they
  12.    were executed, or (c.) execute them without notice (the default).
  13.  
  14. 4. A new procedure, SDCONTEXT, saves and restores the context of SD
  15.    (i.e. the current default and the last seven defaults) over logouts.
  16.  
  17. Changes to SD in the Spring 1986 delivery:
  18.  
  19. 1. Entering "SD ..SUB" will now work as "SD . .SUB" (i.e. the blank be-
  20.    ween the periods is no longer necessary).  (Note that DCL in some
  21.    cases allows you to omit the blank after the verb.)
  22.  
  23. 2. Entering "SD 000000.AAA" will set the default to [AAA], instead of
  24.    the previous [000000.AAA].  Similarly, "SD 000000.000000.AAA", etc.
  25.    will set default to [AAA].
  26.  
  27. 3. Entering "SD ^" when in [AAA] did not move you to [000000].  It now
  28.    does, IF you have SYSPRV.  My philosophy is that unprivileged users
  29.    do not need to browse in [000000].
  30.  
  31. 4. If ROOT is a rooted directory, you can now "SD ROOT:[000000]" without
  32.    error, and if in ROOT:[A] you can now "SD ^".  Example:
  33.  
  34.                 $ SD SYS$MANAGER
  35.  
  36.                     SYS$SYSROOT:[SYSMGR]
  37.  
  38.                 $ SD ^
  39.  
  40.                     SYS$SYSDEVICE:[SYS0]
  41.  
  42.                 $ . . .
  43.  
  44. 5. There are new operations "SD \" and "SD >" (note distinction between
  45.    the new "SD >" and the previously-available "SD >XXX").  See the help
  46.    file or document for definitions.
  47.  
  48. 6. You can use logical names which contain file names, types, versions,
  49.    etc.  SD will go to the file's directory.  Example:
  50.  
  51.                 $ DEFINE ZZZ DISK:[DIR]FILE.TYP;99
  52.  
  53.                 $ SD ZZZ
  54.  
  55.                     DISK:[DIR]
  56.  
  57.                 $ . . .
  58.  
  59. 7. Entering "SD >XXX" from a master directory will now work; before, it
  60.    did nothing (note that this has same effect as "SD XXX").
  61.  
  62. 8. "SD *" will now correctly display underscore characters which appear
  63.    in directory names.
