Function

Remarks

Several lines of comment may be written by several succesive calls of this command. The lines are synchronized with those written by the command FRESULT/GRAPHIC. The keyword on has only effect on the comment simultaneously specified. The keyword off, however, stops automatic writing of any comment. If GOOSY raw data are analyzed, the file header contains the VMS file name (instead of the tape file number in case of EDAS data). If necessary, the VMS file name is truncated from the left to 32 characters in case of a one-dimensional or live display, or to 15 characters in case of a two-dimensional display.

Examples

dcom "SATAN'S WORK" / ON
Write the text SATAN'S WORK as comment on the present and all following pictures.
DCOM  /  FILE 
The actual file header information is written into the current display. It is not automatically written into the following pictures.
DCOM  /  OFF
Stop writing of any comment.
