DCL Programming and $STATUS?

» close window

The Question is:

Can you please explain, or direct me to the documenation on how the $status
 symbol works.  I want to put different levels of error handling into a DCL
 batch procedure.

The Answer is :

  Please see the OpenVMS User's Manual for an introduction to programming
  with DCL, and please see the information on the ON and SET NOON commands
  in the User's Manual and the DCL Dictionary manual, and please also see
  the $SEVERITY symbol.
  To find topics in the OpenVMS documentation set, please use the Master
  Index manual.
