Introduction

The command language extends the facilities available through the QPSMR Companion.

For the licence terms and conditions see the EULA (end user licence agreement).

For information on the CL menu interface see CL window and menu.

Specialist data processing agencies often use the Command Language directly by entering the command language instruction files (set-up files) in full. Menu users wishing to "tweak" their tables may prefer to take the set-up files produced through Companion and make the final changes.

Facilities available within the command language include:

Your instructions are held in a file called the set-up file. The instructions are written in a high-level computer language, known as the QPSMR Command Language.

There are four steps to running a set-up: Compile, Execute, Print and Export.

Compile checks the set-up for syntax and grammar. There is a powerful pre-processor that can be used.

Execute runs the compiled instructions - reads data, increments tables and manipulates tables.

Print outputs the tables with the appropriate text elements to a text file suitable for printing.

Export outputs the data for use with other programs.
