Macro Ability to Turn Screen Update On and Off

PSS ID Number: Q35837 Article last modified on 11-02-1994

MS-DOS

SUMMARY

The reserved variable “echo” will be added. The value of echo can be changed using the set statement. The two echo states are as follows:

<<set echo="on">> updates the screen as the macro executes. This will be the default.

<<set echo="off">> suppresses screen update.

You can query on echo to determine the current echo state. The following is an example:

<<if echo="on">>…

If echo is set to an invalid value (text), the macro will abort with the message “invalid value for reserved variable, macro aborted.”
