TYPES _____
BLOCK _____ (B) .....................................................
Block qualifier The ________________ expands <scope> to the first Block
containing <scope> (everything between the Block delimiters
"%<" and "%>").
Example _______: To DELETE the Decimal Block 2.4, position the
display before the '2.4' label and specify: "d-b/2.4". The
entire Block numbered 2.4 is deleted.
Block qualifier The ________________ can also be used to reorder Decimal
Blocks, but the ".mob" system Command Macro (see Section 7.3)
is easier to use.
CHARACTER _________ (C) .................................................
character qualifier The ___________________ causes the command to act only upon
last character the ______________ of <scope>. For example:
d-c/anks
[before]=> special blanks
[after]=> special blank
If the "C" qualifier hadn't been used, the "anks," rather than
just the "s," would have been DELETEd.
LINE ____ (L) ......................................................
line qualifier The _______________ replaces the <scope> parameter with the
first line of the Display Window (see SDISPLAY). This
qualifier is especially useful when text lines are cluttered
with formatting codes and/or Hypertext.
ORDER _____ (O) .....................................................
order qualifier The ________________ restricts <scope> to Hypertext. The
entire piece of structure containing <scope> is affected by the
edit.
If a command is immediately preceded by a percent sign
("%"), it is executed as though the order qualifier was
specified.
Example _______: To DELETE the label "%L(section)", the user need
only specify: "d-o/%"
