     Compiles, links, and executes an HP Pascal/iX program.  HP
     Pascal/iX is not part of the 900 Series HP 3000 Computer
     System Fundamental Operating Software and must be purchased


     PASXLGO [textfile][,[listfile][,[libfile]]]



textfile            The name of the text file that contains the source
                    code to be compiled.  This is an ASCII file that you
                    prepare with an editor such as EDIT/V.  The formal
                    file designator is PASTEXT.

                    If you are running HP Pascal/iX from your terminal,
                    you will probably specify a disk textfile.  If you
                    do not specify textfile, then the default file is
                    $STDIN.  $STDIN is the current input device, usually
                    your terminal.

                    When textfile is your terminal, you can enter source
                    code interactively in response to the ">" prompt.
                    When you have entered all the source code, type a
                    colon (:) in response to the prompt to end the
                    interactive input.

                    The source code to be compiled can be a program or a
                    list of modules.

listfile            The name of the file on which the compiler writes
                    the program listing.  It can be any ASCII file.  The
                    default is $STDLIST, which is usually the terminal,
                    if you are running HP Pascal/iX from a terminal; it
                    is usually the printer, if you are running a batch
                    job.  The formal file designator is PASLIST.

                    If your terminal is both textfile and listfile, the
                    compiler does not write the program listing on the

                    If listfile is $NULL or a file other than $STDLIST,
                    the compiler displays on $STDLIST those lines that
                    contain errors.

libfile             The name of the HP Pascal/iX library file that the
                    compiler searches if a search path is not specified
                    with the compiler option SEARCH.  The default is
                    PASLIB in your group and account.

quotedstring        A parameter for the compiler.  It is a quoted string
                    of no more than 132 characters (including the single
                    or double quote marks that enclose it).

                    The quotedstring string used in the HP Pascal/iX
                    programming language to pass initial compiler
                    options to the compiler.  HP Pascal/iX brackets the
                    quotedstring string with dollar signs ($) and places
                    the string before the first line of source code in
                    the text file.


The formal file designators used in this command (PASTEXT, PASLIB,
PASLIST) cannot be backreferenced as actual file designators in the
command parameter list.


     This command compiles, links, and executes an HP Pascal/iX
     program.  If textfile is omitted, the compiler expects input
     from your standard input device.  If you do not specify
     listfile, the compiler sends the program listing to the
     formal file designator PASLIST (default is $STDLIST).

     The object file created during compilation is a system-
     defined temporary file, $NEWPASS, which is passed directly
     to the LinkEditor as $OLDPASS.  The LinkEditor purges the
     object file and writes the linked program to $OLDPASS, which
     is then executed and may be executed repeatedly.


This command is implemented as a command file. If you set the HPPATH
variable to null (SETVAR HPPATH ""), the command file will not be
executed, and the command will fail.

     This command may be issued from a session, job, or program.  It may
     not be used in BREAK.  Pressing [Break] suspends the execution of
     this command.  Entering RESUME continues the execution.


     To compile, link, and execute an HP Pascal/iX program
     entered from your standard input device, with the program
     listing sent to your standard list device, enter


     To compile, link, and execute an HP Pascal/iX program from
     the disk file SOURCE and send the program listing to the
     file LISTFILE, enter
