Issue/Introduction

There could be various NCLs in a NetMaster site that still use old format

NCL verbs &WRITEA/&WRITEH/&WRITEM/&WRITEL--and work as coded.



Why old format NCL verbs &WRITEA/&WRITEH/&WRITEM/&WRITEL are

not described on the NetMaster documentation but still work as coded?

Environment

Release: SLOPFC00200-12.1-NetMaster-File Transfer Management
Component:

Resolution

Old &WRITEA/&WRITEH/&WRITEM/&WRITEL verbs are no longer documented

but they are still supported for backward compatibility. 

 

The current verb (that has replaced them) is &WRITE (used with operands).
