EDIT Subcommands-TYPE, UP 2. If you display one line, the current line pointer does not move; if
you display more than one line, the current line is positioned at
the last line displayed, or at the end of the file if you specified
an asterisk (*).
3. If you have set an end verification column to a value less than the length, and you want to display an entire record, enter:
type 1 *
4. If you do not specify an end column, the length of the line(s)
displayed is determined by the current end verification setting.
If you are using right-handed line-number editing on a typewriter
terminal or a display terminal in line mode, the line numbers are
displayed on the left.
The requested lines are displayed.
Since the TYPE subcommand was designed for printing terminals, it is of
marginal value on a display terminal, except when you use line mode.
However, if the display screen is interrupted by communication from the
control program (CPl, you should use the TYPE subcommand to restore the
full screen display.
UP Use the UP subcommand to reposition the current line pointer toward the
beginning of the file. The format of the UP subcommand is: r =, I , r , I I Up I In , I I I 1.1 I I I I L .J I L- -.I :
n indicates the number of lines the pointer is to be moved toward the
beginning of the file. If a number is not specified, then the
pointer is moved up only one line. The line pointed to becomes the
new current line. UP is equivalent to BACKWARD. When verification is on, the line pointed to is displayed at your
terminal. If the UP subcommand causes the current line pointer to move
beyond the beginning of the file, the following message is displayed:

startcol indicates the column in which verification is to begin, when
verification is on. The default is column 1. startcol must
not be greater than the record length nor greater than endcol. endcol indicates the last column to be verified, when verification is
on. endcol must not be greater than the record length. If
endcol is specified as an asterisk (*), each record is
displayed to the end of the record.
1. If you issue the VERIFY subcommand with only one operand, that
operand is assumed to be the endcol operand. For example, if you
issue VERIFY 10, verification occurs in columns 1 through 10. 2. The editor assigns the following settings, by fi.!,giY:Qg§ AMSERV, ASSEMBLE, COBOL, DIRECT, FORTRAN, MaCRO, PLI, PLIOPT, UPDATE, UPDTxxxx others (Including FREEFORT) yeri.fi.£stiQll Column 72
