Resumes execution of a suspended operation.
After a program or MPE/iX command operation is suspended by pressing [Break] or by using the CAUSEBREAK intrinsic, the RESUME command resumes execution of the operation at the point where the execution was suspended. Note that the RESUME command is legitimate only during a BREAK. Many MPE XL commands are aborted rather than suspended by a BREAK, and thus cannot be resumed. (Refer to Table 1-8 for a list of nonbreakable commands.) If, instead of RESUME, you enter another program command (such as EDITOR, FTNXL, or RUN) or one of the nonprogram commands (HELLO or BYE), the Command Interpreter prints the following message on your terminal ABORT? (YES/NO). If you respond YES to the ABORT? message, the Command Interpreter aborts the current (suspended) program and executes the command. If you respond NO to the ABORT? message, the Command Interpreter prints the message COMMAND NOT ALLOWED IN BREAK and prompts you for another command. If you now enter RESUME at the prompt, the suspended program continues at the point where it was interrupted. If you had logged on using the PARM= option of HELLO to create a process with ;PARM=1 (or 3), and then have the occasion to respond YES to an ABORT? message, MPE/iX will abort the command process and log you off immediately. This is similar to the action of MPE V/E with the ()COMMAND LOGON command. This command may be issued only while in BREAK. It may not be used from a session (other than while in BREAK mode), job, or program. Pressing [Break] has no effect on this command.
To continue a suspended program at the point of interruption, enter RESUME READ PENDING [Return] Back to Main Index
