Enhanced INQUIRE-like User-Prompting Tool. The ASK program can be used to read a line of input from SYS$COMMAND. ASK works like the INQUIRE command, except that it allows escape sequences and end_of_file (Ctrl/Z) to be read by the user. The input string or keypress is returned in a local DCL symbol. Options allow for the read to timeout, the result to be placed in a global DCL symbol, a default string to be applied if no input, the result to be all upper case, and that the input string is not echoed. ASK was written to simulate the RSX11M .ASK directive.

ACMS Audit Trail Logger utilities. ATR_DAEMON lives on the system as a detached process. It wakes up periodically, based on a logical, scans the ACMS$AUDIT_LOG (the file ATR uses) for errors, and then mails these errors to a distribution list. ATR_DAEMON consists of 1 TPU and 2 DCL files. Not only does this isolate errors, it also may allow you to catch the error before the user even tries to notify you of it.
A program to AUTOmatically expand DCL commands. AUTO is a tool to let you use command completion Each token of the command line (VERB, QUALIFIER, PARAMETER or QUALIFIER-Value) can be expanded to completion or sequentially searched for the next or previous valid match. This tool will display the buildup command after the ENTER key, but if you specify the /EXECUTE qualifier, the buildup command will be executed via LIB$DO_COMMAND, and control will return to AUTO.

BOSS lets you create up to 8 processes on a VAX/VMS system. Each process is identified by a single letter (A thru Z). At most one of these processes is `current'. What you type is sent to that process, and output from that process is sent to your terminal. A process which is not current can run but cannot do output. (Output is saved until you make that process current.) You usually switch between processes by typing control-\ followed by the identifying letter.
