Purpose

Starts a utility in one of the DBW application windows.

Syntax



1, 2, 3, 4
number of the DBW application window where you want to start the utility.
The default is the lowest numbered application window available.
Do not insert spaces between the word START and the window number. For example, START 1 produces an error, but START1does not.
VPROC=n or -v=nor -v n
the vproc where the program is to be started.
The default is the database control AMP, which is normally AMP 0.
The -v options must be lower case.
utilityname
name of the utility to be started.
Must be a utility or program in one of the PDE or TPA directories.
utilityargs
remaining part of the command line to pass to utilityname.

Usage Notes

When a DBW application window is not specified, or the specified window is not available, the utility starts in the first available DBW application window.

Select a vproc number based on the particular utility being run. For example, if the utility you are starting provides information on a specific AMP or vproc, be sure to start the utility on that AMP or vproc.

Example: Starting a utility in one of the DBW application windows

The following example starts the Vproc Manager utility in window 3.
