Question:

What do these DCUF SIMULATE commands do and which IDMS Guide show what the % sign means? 

DCUF SIM 
SIGNON AUTUSER USERABC%E 
%E 
TASKABC%E 
%T %T %T %TASKCDE%E 
TASKXYZ%E 
%PA1 
DCUF SIM OFF 

BYE

Answer:

Within IDMS CV, at the Enter Next Task Code, issue command ‘DCUF HELP SIMULATE’ to see all the DCUF SIMULATE keywords and their abbreviations:

DCUF SIM PUTS NON-3270 TERMINALS INTO 3270 SIMULATION MODE. INPUT LINES MAY BE 

CONTINUED BY ENDING THEM WITH A HYPHEN. SPECIAL 3270 KEYS MAY BE SIMULATED BY 
TYPING A % FOLLOWED BY A KEYWORD AND A BLANK. 
%TAB OR %SKIP - TAB TO NEXT UNPROTECTED FIELD 
%BACKTAB 
%EREOF - ERASE TO END OF FIELD 
%ERINP - ERASE INPUT 
%NL - NEWLINE 
%PF1 THRU %PF24 - PROGRAM FUNCTION KEYS 
%PA1 THRU %PA3 - PROGRAM ATTENTION KEYS 
%RESET 
%ENTER 
%CLEAR 
%CNCL - CANCEL KEY 
%FM - FIELD MARK 
%DUP - DUP CHARACTER 
%MOVECUR(X,Y) - MOVE CURSOR TO ROW X COL Y 
%SELECT(X,Y) - SELECTOR PEN AT ROW X COL Y 
ALSO %MSG1 THRU %MSG3 CHANGES MESSAGE LEVEL 

 

The above DCUF SIMULATE script consists of the following commands:

 

SIGNON AUTUSER USERABC followed by the Enter key (%E) 
Another Enter key (%E) 
Task TASKABC (that will execute in the IDMS CV) followed by the Enter key 
Several Tab keys(%T) Task TASKCDE followed by the Enter key  
Task TASKXYZ followed by Enter key 
Program Attention Key (%PA1) 
DCUF SIM OFF

BYE

 

The % sign is a delimiter and %CLEAR clears the screen.
