Help for LOGIN Version 64 ATTACH command Description: The ATTACH command connects your terminal to a job. If you are logged in, it will detach your current job first. Privileged users ([1,2] jobs) may ATTACH to any job whether or not it is already connected to a terminal. Unprivileged users may only ATTACH to a detached job. In order to ATTACH to a job, a user must specify enough information to uniquely identify the target job. You can include a number of options (switches) for the ATTACH command to control the way the terminal and job will be connected. For a more detailed description, refer to the TOPS-10 Operating System Commands Manual. Syntax: .ATTACH .ATTACH job[ppn] /switch1 /switch2 ... .ATTACH job /switch1 /switch2 ... .ATTACH [ppn] /switch1 /switch2 ... .ATTACH user /switch1 /switch2 ... .ATTACH dev: /switch1 /swich ... "/switch1 /switch2 ..." are a list of optional switches or modifiers that you can append to the command to alter its behavior or set various parameters. Note that there are some SCAN switches that are not implemented. These will not function, but there will be no error message if you include them. Valid switches are: Switch Action ------ ------ /*HELP:keyword Display help on the terminal. ARGUMENTS Display switches and argument types. SWITCHES Display only the switches. TEXT Display the help file (this text) /MAILCHECK:yes-no Do [not] check for the existence of new mail. /MONITOR Force attaching to new job in monitor mode. /SETTTY:yes-no Do [not] set terminal parameters as specified with the /TERMINAL switch. /TERMINAL:args Define the terminal characteristics (see below). /USER Force attaching to new job in user mode if it's running a program. The /TERMINAL switch takes a list of parameters to specify terminal attributes. You can include multiple keywords for the /TERMINAL switch, in which case you must enclose them in parentheses and separate them with commas. The list of keywords and actions appears below. Keyword Action ------- ------ ALTMODE:yes-no Do [not] convert ASCII 175 and 176 to ESCAPE (Altmode (ASCII 33)). BLANKS:yes-no Do [not] print blank lines. CRLF:yes-no Do [not] give a free CRLF at right margin. DEBREAK:yes-no Do [not] include debreak feature (2741 terminals). DEFER:yes-no Do [not] set deferred echo mode. DISPLAY:yes-no Terminal is [not] a display terminal. ECHO:yes-no Do [not] set terminal echo. EIGHTBIT:yes-no Do [not] set 8-bit mode. ESCAPE:chr Set translation character to chr. FILL:dnum Set filler class to dnum (0<=dnum<=3). FORM:yes-no Terminal does [not] have hardware form feeds. GAG:yes-no Do [not] accept SEND messages at user level. LC:yes-no Terminal does [not] have lowercase characters. LENGTH:dnum Set the terminal screen length to dnum. LOCALCOPY:yes-no Do [not] set terminal to local copy. NOFILL Do not set terminal fill (same as FILL:0). QUOTE:yes-no Do [not] enable control-V character quoting. RTCOMP:yes-no Do [not] disable special effects of ^R and ^T. RCVSPEED:n Set terminal receive speed to n baud. SBELL:yes-no Do [not] ring the bell when output is stopped due to exceeding STOP/SSTOP value. SPEED:dnum Set receive and transmit speed to dnum baud. STOP:dnum Set the terminal STOP counter to dnum. SSTOP:dnum Set the terminal SSTOP counter to dnum. TABS:yes-no Terminal does [not] have hardware tabs. TAPE:yes-no Do [not] allow XON to start paper-tape reader. TIDY:yes-no Do [not] set TTY TIDY mode. TYPExxx Set terminal type to xxx. UNPAUSE:chr Set the unpause character to chr. UC:yes-no Terminal does [not] have uppercase characters only. WIDTH:dnum Set carriage width to dnum columns. XONXOFF:yes-no Do [not] allow ^S/^Q to pause output. XMTSPEED:dnum Set terminal transmit speed to dnum baud. Switches of the form /*xxxxxx are unique to one character. The asterisk is NOT part of the switch name. The following is a list of possible arguments which may be accepted by some switches and keywords: Argument Input -------- ----- args A list of keywords and optional arguments. atxt A possibly quoted string of ASCII characters. You must include quotation marks if the string contains any characters other than alphanumerics or a dash. chr A single, possibly quoted character or an octal constant. cnum or argument: decimal number followed by optional K or P. dnum Decimal number followed by optional K, M, or G. filespec A standard TOPS-10 file designator of the form dev:file.ext[path]. onum Octal number followed by optional K, M, or G. pathspec A standard TOPS-10 path designator of the form [project#,programmer#,sfd1,sfd2,...]. prefix A prefix is the last three characters of the "[LGNxxx ...]" or "%LGNxxx ..." messages. stxt A possibly quoted string of SIXBIT characters. You must include quotation marks if the string contains any characters other than alphanumerics or a dash. yes-no Switch and keyword arguments may either be NO, YES, OFF (no), ON (yes), 0 (no), or 1 (yes). In addition, you can precede th switch or keyword name with NO to negate its action (such as /NOxxxxxx instead of /xxxxxx:NO). Examples: .ATTACH 10 [10,3146] Password: .ATTACH 33 [10,275] /MONITOR Password: .KJOB .
