Description:
The SET LINEFLAGS command controls the line characteristics of lines in a file.

Each line in a file has certain characteristics associated with it depending on how the line has been modified. On reading a file from disk, all lines in the file are set to their default values.

Once a line is modified, or tagged, the characteristics of the line are set appropriately. A line that is added, is set to NEW; a line that is changed is set to CHANGE, and a line that is tagged with the TAG command, is set to TAG. All three characteristics can be on at the one time.

XEDIT: N/A
KEDIT: Compatible.
