List Generic (LG)

The LG or List Generic command does much the same thing, but more selectively. It takes a partial key, for example “AB*”, and uses the tableBASE FG (Fetch Generic) command to fetch all rows matching that key (all rows with keys beginning with “AB”). The same result would have been obtained by entering a 2 in the “KEY LENGTH:” field and AB for a partial key. See Fetch Generic (FG) for additional information.

Scrolling works as described for PR.

The DR or Directory command provides a similar display, but it uses the tableBASE NX command to fetch successive table names from the tableBASE Library Index, rather than rows from a table. The message line shows the number of blocks allocated to and available on the library. The <Enter> key may be used to scroll forward through the list of table names.
