Conventions for entering parameters

[ ] Indicates optional selection of parameters. Do not enter the brackets.

Optional parameters are positional, i.e., when two items exist in the brackets both parameters must be entered. For example, the notation “[PARMA [PARMB]]” means that if PARMB is given then PARMA must also be given as a place-holder in the argument list. If you want PARMA to be ignored, then set it to nulls or spaces, as appropriate for the command.

The “xxxx” in xxxx-COMMAND-AREA is a programmer-defined variable prefix in the application program code. xxxx-COMMAND-AREA may also be referred to as COMMAND-AREA in this manual.
