HELP for HLPSQZ
HLPSQZ is a program to maintain a collection of small HELP
messages. These messages are ADDed into a file called HLP:HELP.SQZ and
an index entry for each message is recorded in HLP:HELP.INX. This
allows many small HELP messages to occupy a small space on the disk. To
add a help message to HELP.SQZ ,first create a file containing the
message. The file name should correspond to the help topic name. Then,
run HLPSQZ to add this file to HELP.SQZ as explained for the /ADD
command. If you want your little file deleted after it is copied to
HELP.SQZ, you should use the /PURGE switch after the file name. In the
following list, "filename" stands for a full file specification, which
can usually contain standard DEC wildcards. "topicname" stands for a
single name which can also usually contain wildcards.
A list of commands and switches for HLPSQZ follows.
/ADD filename Adds index entry for a topic to
HELP.INX. Also sets a flag to copy
the file called "filename" into
HELP.SQZ when you exit by typing
/ALIAS:topicname Use is "ADD topic1/ALIAS:topic2".
This will add "topic1" to the
index, but will give user help for
"topic2" when he asks for "topic1".
e.g. "ADD ME/ALIAS:HELP" will add
"ME" to the index. When a user
types "HELP ME", he will get help
for HELP instead.
/DDT If DDT is loaded, this command runs
/DECIDE Switch which says you want to
decide about each file in a wild
card operation. This switch may
appear after a file spec, in which
case it has a local effect, or it
may appear alone on a command line,
in which case it remains in effect
until turned off by /NODECIDE
/DELETE topicname Deletes topic from index and makes
free space available in HELP.SQZ
/DIRECT topicname Types a list of topics in the index
which match "topicname".
/EXTRACT filename= Copies a message called "topicname"
topicname out of HELP.SQZ into file called
/FAST Indicates that directory listing
should only contain topic names.
/FREE Types a list of free blocks in
/PURGE Flag to delete the little help file
after it is copied to HELP.SQZ.
This switch will apply to all files
if it is typed alone on a command
line Turned off by /NOPURGE
/QUIT Terminates session and does all
real copying of files into
HELP.SQZ. If you want to abort
without making any changes, use ^C.
/ROUTINE Flag that says to add topic name to
index without copying anything into
HELP.SQZ. Used to give name of an
internal subroutine for HELP to
run. (e.g. HELP COMMAND)
/SQUEEZE Rewrite entire HELP.SQZ eliminating
any free space. Used to compress
HELP.SQZ if there are a lot of
scattered free blocks.
/SUPERSEDE:ASK Ask about superseding any existing topic.
:ALWAYS Always supersede existing topic.
:OLDER Supersede older topic with newer one.
:NEVER Never supersede existing topic.
/TYPE topicname If message is part of HELP.SQZ, type it out.
/WHAT Types out current status of HLPSQZ
/WIDTH:n Causes directory listing to be
typed with given page width. If n
is omitted, the default width for
your terminal is used.
/WRITE Causes an immediate copying of all
topics that have been ADDed into
