Script EDIT Statement

EDIT {ON | OFF}

The EDIT statement is used to interact with the script processor by pausing the script before sending a command to the online host. An "Enter user data" box with the next command in it appears, allowing the command to be edited before it is sent. The changes made in the text editing box are not saved in the script file. The default is EDIT OFF. For example:

=> FILE CAPLUS    
EDIT ON
=> S ASPIRIN       
              
EDIT OFF
=> D 1-3 ALL      

You may use \! as a shortcut for the EDIT statement. Use \! on the => and : statement lines for STN scripts. The \! operator  must occur at the end of the statement.
