The Question is:
With the pipe command How do I pass the results of a symbol back to the command
$pipe dir/size/total DSA33:[audit_data]*.* | search sys$input total | read
$write sys$output line
%DCL-W-UNDSYMB undefine symbol
I want to use the result of symbol line in the remainder of the command file
I have tried all the examples in the VMS help and in FAQ but have not found
away to return the results of the read to a symbol.
