TADIF: Task to print difference in table-format extension files
INNAME Image name (name)
INCLASS Image name (class)
INSEQ 0.0 9999.0 Image name (seq. #)
INDISK 0.0 9.0 Disk drive #
INEXT Extension type
INVERS -5.0 46655.0 Extension file version #
IN2NAME 2nd Image name (name)
IN2CLASS 2nd Image name (class)
IN2SEQ 0.0 9999.0 2nd Image name (seq. #)
IN2DISK 0.0 9.0 2ndDisk drive #
IN2VERS -5.0 46655.0 2nd Extension file version #
BPRINT 0.0 First row number to examine
in first file
BCOUNT First row number in 2nd file
0 -> BPRINT
EPRINT 0.0 Last row number to examine
NPRINT Only list NPRINT rows 0 -> 25
NDIG -10.0 10.0 > 3 => extended precision
<=0 => use F not exp format
DOCRT -3.0 132.0 If > 0, write to CRT
> 72 => CRT line width
Printer disk file to save
DOHMS -1.0 2.0 If > 0 print times with
NCOUNT 0.0 Print the first NCOUNT values
in a cell
BOX List of columns to be
examined: NO DEFAULT
Use: TADIF prints on the line printer or terminal any rows of
two table files that differ. It does not attempt to be
clever. So if one table matches the other except that
one of them has extra rows, the tables will be seen to
differ after the first extra row. In other words, TADIF
compares the same numbered row in each table. The adverbs
BCOUNT and BPRINT are provided so that you may start the
task with the two row numbers offset following the first
extra row in order to find the next extra row. Given this
issue, it would be best to set DOCRT > 0.
INNAME.....Image name (name). Standard defaults.
INCLASS....Image name (class). Standard defaults.
INSEQ......Image name (seq. #). 0 => highest.
INDISK.....Disk drive # of image. 0 => any.
INEXT......Extension file type ' ' => 'TA'
INVERS.....Extension file version # 0 => highest.
IN2NAME....2nd Image name (name). Standard defaults.
IN2CLASS...2nd Image name (class). Standard defaults.
IN2SEQ.....2nd Image name (seq. #). 0 => highest.
IN2DISK....2nd Disk drive # of image. 0 => any.
IN2VERS....2nd Extension file version # 0 => highest.
BPRINT.....First row to list from first file, 0 => 1.
BCOUNT.....First row number to include from 2nd file in case of
rows being offset. 0 -> BPRINT
EPRINT.....Last row to list. < BPRINT => to end.
NPRINT.....Stop listing after NPRINT mis-matched rows. 0 -> 25.
NDIG.......If 0 < NDIG <= 3, the formats 1PE10.3 and 1PD13.6 are
used for single and double precision floats. To see more
digits, NDIG > 3 causes 1PE13.6 and 1PD17.10 to be used.
The added digits may be significant in some tables.
If -3 <= NDIG <= 0, suitable non-exponential formats will
be used when possible. Exponential will still be used
for numbers all of which are very small. NDIG < -3 can
use additional digits if needed to reresent the smallest
DOCRT......False (<= 0) use the line printer if OUTPRINT = ' '
else write named OUTPRINT file only.
When OUTPRINT is not blank, DOCRT=-2 suppresses the
page-feed character on page headers and DOCRT=-3
suppresses page headers and most other header
information. When OUTPRINT is blank, the line
printer will be used. TADIF now counts the lines
to be printed before printing any and asks for
permission to continue if the count > 500.
True (> 0) use the terminal interactively. The task will
use the actual terminal width as a display limit
unless 72 < DOCRT < width. In that case, the display
limit will be DOCRT characters.
OUTPRINT...Disk file name in which to save the line printer output.
' ' => use scratch and print immediately for interactive
jobs - batch jobs use OUTPRINT = 'PRTFIL:BATCHjjj.nnn'
(jjj= job #, nnn = user #). When OUTPRINT is not blank,
multiple outputs are concatenated, and the file is not
DOHMS......If DOHMS is false (<=0), the times in the output will
be printed in days. If DOHMS > 0, they will be
printed in the form hh:mm:ss.s. This is done for any
column having units of DAYS and a header which starts with
NCOUNT.....Elements 1 through NCOUNT are printed for each selected
cell in the table. 0 => 100000.
BOX........To select the column numbers to be examined including their
order. Up to 5 may be selected. NO DEFAULT!
