SI


SI Swift Input ___________________
SINPUT puts the user into Swift Input Mode, which is faster and
less expensive than Input Mode.


iip SInput <___>° <options>°
AU


<iip>...the place after which the new text will be inserted.
<options> _________
Either <option> or both can be specified in any order. If
neither <option> is specified, text is entered into the file as
typed. Any invalid options will be ignored, but no error message
will be printed. The options are:
A...(As-Is Mode) All blanks become special blanks and "!-S0-"
is put before all input lines (only for this input
session).
U...(upper case) All input is translated to upper-case.
NOTES _____
FRESS performs no checking for format errors (e.g., on alter
and edit codes) when SINPUT is used for inputting.
While in Swift Input Mode, all text typed is interpreted as
literal until a null line is typed (to return to Command Mode).
A blank is automatically inserted into the file at the end of
each inputted line. To avoid this, a logical hyphen ("%")
should be typed as the last character on the line.
Rather than inserting each new line of text into the file as it
is typed, as INSERT does, several lines are grouped together
before being saved. A blank line is typed at the terminal to
indicate when they are safely in the file.
