The Question is:
In OpenVMS 7.3-2, or thereabouts, a new method of deciding whether to do a SET
TERMINAL/INQUIRE was introduced into the SYLOGIN.COM template:
$ TT_NOINQUIR = "|TW|RT|WT|TK|WS|PY|FT|TN|"
This looks a better method than what went before. Can I back-fit this, as is,
to earlier versions of VMS, or does it require VMS 7.3-2 installed?
The Answer is :
You are quite free to modify the site-specific SYLOGIN.COM file
to meet local requirements, of course.
The DCL command sequence will work as far back as the associated
lexical functions and related structures are available within
OpenVMS, and none of the DCL lexicals utilized are new to nor
specific to OpenVMS Alpha V7.3-2. All have long-standing
You can simply try the DCL sequence on the particular target
OpenVMS version, in other words, and can then determine if it
works for you within your SYLOGIN.COM environment.
