Help for LOGIN Version 64 LOGIN command Description: The LOGIN command allows access to the system. The LOGIN program accepts a project-programmer number (PPN), a password, and optionally account and remark strings; you can obtain these from the system administrator. You may include a number of options (switches) to the LOGIN command, to set specific job parameters. For a more detailed description, refer to the TOPS-10 Operating System Commands Manual. Syntax: .LOGIN .LOGIN proj,prog /switch1 /switch2 ... .LOGIN proj,prog [path] /switch1 /switch2 ... .LOGIN [ppn] /switch1 /switch2 ... .LOGIN [path] /switch1 /switch2 ... .LOGIN user /switch1 /switch2 ... .LOGIN user [,,path] /switch1 /switch2 ... .LOGIN dev: /switch1 /switch2 ... .LOGIN dev: [path] /switch1 /switch2 ... "/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 ------ ------ /ACCOUNT:atxt Set the user account to atxt. /ASSIGN:phy:log Assign the physical device phy and give it the logical name log. The second argument is optional. You can include this switch more than once, to assign more than one device. /ATTACH:keyord Control handling of detached jobs ASK To give you the option of attaching to any detached jobs. IGNORE Don't give you the option to attach to any detached jobs, and set this job to be ignored on other detached job scans. /BATCH:(args) Set the batch parameters (used by BATCON only). /CORE:cnum Set the user core limit to cnum. /DEFAULT:(args) Set the default values as requested. /DEFER:yes-no Do [not] defer queueing of spooled output until logout time. /DSKFUL:keyword Control handling of quota exceeded errors. ERROR Give fatal error if disk fills up. PAUSE Pause job if disk fills up. /DSKPRI:dnum Set disk priority to dnum (-3<=dnum<=3). /GUIDELINE When you append this to /PHYSICAL switch, implies guideline rather than limit. /*HELP:keyword Display information on the terminal. ARGUMENTS Display switches and argument types. SWITCHES Display only the switches. TEXT Display the help file (this text). /LIB:[ppn] Set the library area to specified PPN. /LIMIT When you append this switch to /PHSICAL switch, implies limit rather than guideline. /LOCATE:onum Set the job's location to octal node onum. /MAILCHECK:yes-no Do [not] check for the existence of new mail. /NAME:stxt Set user name to stxt. /NEW:yes-no Do [not] enable searching of NEW: when SYS: used. /NOTE:filespec Display contents of filespec. /NOTICE:key Control displaying contents of SYS:NOTICE.TXT and the filespec argument to the /NOTE: switch. ALWAYS Means always display notices. SOMETIMES Means only display notices you have not seen yet. NEVER Means never display the notices. /NOWATCH Do not set any WATCH arguments. /PASSWORD:yes-no Cause LOGIN to [not] ask for a new password after validating your current one. The new password will become your permanent password after the LOGIN procedure is completed. This switch is ignored when used under batch. /PATH:pathspec Give the job a default path of pathspec. /PHYSICAL:cnum If you also specify /LIMIT, this sets the physical limit to cnum pages. If you specify /GUIDELINE (or omit both /GUIDELINE and /LIMIT), the physical guideline is set to cnum pages. /QUOTA:(str,..) Recompute disk usage on specified file structures. You can replace "str" with "DSK" to indicate all structures in your search list or "ALL" to recompute disk usage on all structures in the system. /QUOTA with no arguments is equivalent to /QUOTA:DSK. /REMARK:atxt Set the user remark to atxt. /SCAN:yes-no Do [not] enable scanning of higher-level directories if file is not found in current one. /SETTTY:yes-no Do [not] set terminal parameters as specified with the /TERMINAL swith /SFDCREATE:yes-no Do [not] create SFDs on structures that don't already have them. This only applies when logging in with a path specification. /SFDPROT:onum Set the protection of all created SFDs to onum. /SPOOL:(dev,..) Enable spooling of specified devices. /STR:yes-no Do [not] display contents of ALL:STR.TXT[1,4]. /SYS:yes-no Do [not] enable searching of SYS: if file is not found in current directory. /TERMINAL:(args) Define the terminal characteristics. /TIME:dnum Set job's time limit to dnum seconds. /UFDPROT:onum Set the protection of all created UFDs to onum. /VIRTUAL:cnum Set virtual limit (guideline) of cnum pages. /WATCH:(arg,..) Same as .SET WATCH arg,... The /BATCH switch takes a list of parameters to specify batch attributes. You can include multiple keywords with the /BATCH switch, in which case you must enclose them inside parentheses and separate them with commas. This switch is for use by BATCON only, and has no meaning for timesharing users. The list of keywords and actions appears below. Keyword Action ------- ------ INTERVENTION:yes-no The batch job does [not] require operator intervention to run. NAME:stxt Set the batch job name to stxt. SEQUENCE:dnum Set the batch sequence number to dnum. STREAM:dnum Set the batch stream number to dnum. REQUESTID:dnum Set the batch request id to dnum. The /DEFAULT switch takes a list of parameters to specify default attributes. You can include multiple keywords for the /DEFAULT switch, in which case you must enclose them inside parentheses and separate them with commas. The list of keywords and actions appears below. Keyword Action ------- ------ BIGBUF:N Set the default BIGBUF buffer size for disk to n blocks. BUFFERS:n Set the default number of disk buffers to n. PROTECTION:N Set the default file protection to n. 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] se 8bit 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 hardar tabs. TAPE:yes-no Do [not] allow XON to start paper-tape reader. TIDY:yes-no Do [not] set TTY TIDY mode. TYPE:xxx Set terminal type to xxx. UNPAUSE:chr Set the unpause character to chr.

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 Core 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 kyword arguments may either be NO, YES, OFF (no), ON (yes), 0 (no), or 1 (yes). In addition, you can precede the switch or keyword name with NO to negate its action (such as /NOxxxxxx instead of /xxxxxx:NO).
