Purpose

Establishes or changes the communication character (comchar) that is used to link the entry of TDP operator commands with a TDP that is to be initialized.

Syntax



The SE abbreviation is deprecated.

where:

comchar
Communication character as one of the following special characters:
[ . < ( + | & ! $ * ) ; - / , % _ > ? : # @ ’ = “
OFF
Specification that no communication character be used to identify commands.

Usage Notes

When a TDP starts, no comchar is defined. After the SET COMCHAR command is executed to specify a communication character for a TDP, all TDP commands subsequently entered that are preceded by the character are interpreted as commands for that TDP.

It is not recommended that the same communication character be defined for more than one TDP subsystem. If this is done, commands prefixed by the character are processed by all subsystems that are assigned that communication character.

Example 1: SET COMCHAR

SET COM +

Completion Message 1

TDP0543 COMMUNICATION CHARACTER IS NOW SET: +

Example 2: SET COMCHAR

SET COMCHAR OFF
