HELP SECTION

TCODE
Type: Adverb   (String*4)
Use:  An Adverb which controls type of DDT test executed when
      running DDTEXEC and DDTLOAD.  Four possible values are
      INIT,TEST,READ, or WRIT.
      INIT = starts from the original master UV dataset, and
           (re)computes master files (does ALLDEST).
           The "mask" TMASK controls which steps execute.
           An output tape is required: each result must go to
           tape and be restored to disk before the next step.
      TEST = re-does the INIT computation but stores the new
           files under different names and compares against
           masters. The "mask" TMASK controls which steps
           execute. TEST steps use either the TEST run output
           of the previous step (TMODE=T) or the INIT run
           output (TMODE=M).  On TMODE=T, an output tape is
           required: each result must go to tape and be
           restored to disk before the next step.
      WRIT = write out all master files to   tape.
      READ = read  in  all master files from tape.
