EDIT Subcommands-SERIAL OFF indicates that neither serialization numbers nor identifiers are
to be placed in columns 73-80. ON indicates that the first three characters of
be used in columns 73-75 as an identifier.
filename are to
ALL indicates that columns 73-80 are to be used for serialization
seq specifies a three-character identification to be used in columns
incr specifies the increment for the line number in columas 76-80 (or 73-80). This number also becomes the first line number. If incr
is not specified, then 10 is assumed.
1. The SERIAL subcommand is valid only for files with fixed-length, SO-character records. To renumber VSBASIC or FREEFORT files, use
the RENUM subcommand.
2. The serialization setting is ON, by default, for the following
filetypes: ASSEMBLE COBOL DIRECT FORTRAN MACRO PLI PLIOPT UPDATE UPDTxxxx 3. When serialization is in effect, records in a file are resequenced
each time a FILE, SAVE, or AUTOSAVE request is issued. If you are
using line-number editing, you must issue the subcommand:
linemode off
before issuing a FILE or SAVE subcommand if you wish the records to
be resequenced.
If you issue the SERIAL subcommand in a file with a zone column greater
than 72, the message:
is displayed, to indicate that the zone has been changed. If the zone
column is 72 or less, but the truncation column is greater than 72, the
message: TRONC SET TO 72
is displayed. Section 3. EDIT Subcommands and Macros 249
