PRINT is used to type up to one "display buffer's worth" of
text at the terminal.


Print <n>


NOTES _____
The maximum number of lines which may be printed is determined
by dividing the buffer size by the current line length (see
SDISPLAY).
does not move PRINT _____________ the start of the display buffer.
TYPE or FULLPRINT must be used for long online printouts.
Issuing "PRINT 1" is the cheapest way to display the current
location.
b "P/" is equivalent to "P 1," but "P" is not!
RESTRICTIONS ____________
PRINT should not be used immediately following QUERY.
MESSAGES ________

October 1, 1979 FRESS COMMANDS PACK FILE
System


PF


PF Pack File _________________
PFILE recreates the current file so that each internal record
is filled to the specified percentage.


PFile <n>°
100 ___


<n>...the percentage each internal record is to be filled
NOTES _____
PFILE is used primarily to make a file as small as possible
when it is to be stored without editing for a long period of
time.
The new file created after this command is put on the A-disk;
if the current file resides there, it is replaced.
PFILE issues an implicit FFILE when it is finished.
FRESS internal records are usually balanced at approximately
66% full.
If the file to be packed is large, the user should consider
creating a large temporary disk. One way to do this is to type
"CMS TSEG E" The system responds with the message "E
(005)...R/W." The user should type "CMS QCOPY <filename> FRESS
A = = E." The PFILE command can then be issued without fear of
running out of disk storage.
It is not advantageous to pack a file to 100% capacity if
editing operations are still to be performed since any increase
in amount of text at any point in the file will be likely to
decrease editing efficiency.
One might want to pack a file to perhaps 85% capacity if only
minor typographical corrections were to be made subsequently.
PFILE may be used to expand the file, by specifying a
percentage smaller than the current packing level. This is
useful for making major corrections more efficient.
