THE

SET LASTOP - set the contents of the lastop argument

Syntax:
[SET] LASTOP operand text

Description:
The SET LASTOP command sets the values of the specified operand to the text supplied. This command is most useful when run from a macro, to set the string to be passed to the next invocation of the equivalent operand command; eg LOCATE, FIND, etc.

Because THE does not save the contents of the lastop from a command when run from a macro, sometimes the macro is intended to set this value. This command allows that capability.

Compatibility:
XEDIT: N/A
KEDIT: Compatible.

See Also:
LOCATE, FIND, SEARCH

Status:
Complete.
