APPENDIX 5 - DEFAULT STATUS SETTINGS IN THE


In case you never want to write macros or profiles you can safely return to Table of Contents :-)

This appendix describes the default status settings in THE in its various compatibility modes. You can inspect or save the current status of your THE-session with the status command. A single status information can be obtained with the query command. Within a macro you can use either the extract command or the implied extract method. You can set or change a status variable either with the set or modify command (see detailed or quick reference).

NOTE: Depending on set compat the following commands may return different values within macros (see also history for 2.3 and 2.5):
CURLINE, LINE, LINEFLAG, POINT, RING, SELECT!

Topics:

Meaning of the flags in the following tables:

  1. F: file scope, G: global scope (applies to all files in the ring); Note: when you open a new file for editing this file may inherit file specific settings from the current file (exception: msgmode, see also set reprofile).
  2. Q: can be used with query command
  3. E: can be used with extract command
  4. M: can be changed with set or modify command
  5. S: can be obtained by status command
  6. R: can be obtained by implied extract within REXX macros
  7. P: used by preserve/restore command
?: not yet determined
