2 Parameters

2.1 Options
-a

Receive spontaneous printouts


This option specifies that spontaneous printouts, for example alarm printouts, are received.
If the option is not specified, only answer printouts and result printouts of the Man-
Machine Language (MML) commands are received.

-b

Break inhibit
This option specifies that the operator wants to continue the execution of an MML
command file, even though that MML command is not successfully executed. If the option
is not specified, the execution of the MML command file stops in event of an error.

-c

Confirm automatically
This option specifies automatic confirmation of the command. This option is included as
default when an MML command is specified as an operand. If MML commands are executed
from a file and output is redirected to an output file, this option must be specified since
there is no way to confirm the commands manually.

-d device

Requested Input/Output (IO) device


This option specifies the IO device to be used.

Expressed as AD-n where:

Device number

Signed integer 0 - 1023

-f file

MML command file


This option specifies that MML commands contained in a text file are executed.
Text string

-i device

Copy printouts

file://C:\Program Files\ALEX\Lib\ALEX_TMP\1005\alex0344.htm 2/6/2016


Man-Machine Language, Commands, Execute Page 3 of 15

This option specifies that result printouts of the MML commands and spontaneous printouts
are copied to the specified IO device. Answer, procedure and check printouts are not
affected.

Expressed as AD-n where:

Device number

Signed integer 0 - 1023

-I device

Redirect printouts
This option specifies that result printouts of the MML commands and spontaneous printouts
are redirected to the specified IO device. Answer, procedure and check printouts are not
affected.

Expressed as AD-n where:

Device number

Signed integer 0 - 1023

-l

Start Line
This option specifies the line number, in the MML command file, from where execution
starts.

If this option is omitted the execution starts from the first line in the MML command file.

Signed integer 1 - 2 147 483 647

-Q

Select Central Processor (CP) side


This option enables the command to be included in the login configuration file. After a
successful logon,the following question appears:

Connect to CP-EX? yes/[no]:

yes, establishes a connection to the Executive (EX) side of the CP.

no, establishes a connection to the separated Standby (SB) side. The default answer is
yes.

-r time

Retry time
This option specifies the time period an MML command is retried, if the command returned
FUNCTION BUSY. The MML command is sent for execution repeatedly until the retry time
has elapsed or the MML command is accepted. If the option is not specified, the MML
command is not retried. The retry time is specified in minutes.
Signed integer 0 - 1440

-s

file://C:\Program Files\ALEX\Lib\ALEX_TMP\1005\alex0344.htm 2/6/2016


Man-Machine Language, Commands, Execute Page 4 of 15

Connect to separated CP side


This option specifies that the MML command is directed to the separated CP-SB side. If an
MML session is activated, this session is established towards the separated CP-SB side. If
the option is not specified, the MML command is directed to the CP-EX side.

-w time

Wait time
This option specifies a time limit for waiting for result printouts of the MML commands. If
the wait time is specified to zero (0), the command does not wait for the result printouts.
If the option is not specified, the command waits until the result printouts are received.
The waiting time is specified in minutes.
Signed integer 0 - 1440

-y lines

Lines per page


This option specifies number of lines per page. Each page starts with an exchange header.
If this option is omitted the page is continuous.
Signed Integer 10 - 1000

2.1.1 Operands

command...

MML command
This operand is a valid MML command string. The operand is repeatable.

3 Function
This command is used to execute MML commands. The mml command has three different
formats: MML session, MML command, and MML command file.

Format 1, MML Session

When mml is entered without the file option, or without the command operand, an MML session
is activated. Procedure, answer and check printouts are received immediately in response to
MML commands. Result and spontaneous printouts are received when CTRL-D (<EOT>) is
pressed. If CTRL-D (<EOT>) is pressed during a printout, the printout is interrupted. The prompt
is received when CTRL-M (<ENTER>) is pressed. From an MML session it is possible to switch to
Adjunct Processor (AP) local mode, by using command APLOC. To return from AP local mode to
the MML session, use Shell built-in command to exit, for example exit . To end the MML session,
use command EXIT.

Note:
To receive spontaneous printouts, for example alarm printouts, option -a must be
specified.

To preserve lower case letters, the string containing the lower case letters must be surrounded
by quotationmarks (") and dollar-signs ($). Example: "$lowercase$". The character to indicate
the lower case string (together with the qoutationmark) is defined as a parameter, with the
dollar-sign as the default value.

Format 2, MML Command

This format enables use of MML commands in Shell scripts, or MML commands from the Shell
prompt. The MML command is automatically confirmed.

file://C:\Program Files\ALEX\Lib\ALEX_TMP\1005\alex0344.htm 2/6/2016


Man-Machine Language, Commands, Execute Page 5 of 15

It is possible to specify more than one MML command as operands; individual MML commands
must be separated by a space character. If a separate operand (MML command) includes
command parameters, which include the space character, the whole operand must be
surrounded by quotation marks (").

If an ampersand (&) is included in the command, the command must be surrounded by


quotation marks (").

To preserve lower case letters, the string containing the lower case letters must be surrounded
by apostrophes (') and dollar-signs ($). Example: '$lowercase$'. The character to indicate the
lower case string (together with the apostrophes) is defined as a parameter, with the dollar-sign
as the default value.

Format 3, MML Command File

Option -f is used to execute a text file containing MML commands. The option argument file
indicates the name of the text file. If an error occurs and option -b is omitted, the execution of
MML commands is stopped.

By using option -l, the execution of the command file starts at the specified line.

Note:
If option -c is specified, the MML commands are automatically confirmed.

Note:
If option -c is omitted and output is redirected to an output file, the execution of the
command file will be hanging if any command requires confirmation.

4 Examples

4.1 Example: 1
This is an example of the MML session format. The MML session is activated with command mml.
When the CP prompt is received, command DPWSP is executed, and the answer printout is
displayed. The MML session is closed by using command EXIT.

4.2 Example: 2
This is an example of the MML session format. The MML session is activated with command mml
and option -a, in order to receive spontaneous printouts. The first command that is executed is
IOSTP. When the answer printout is received from command IOSTP, command SYCLI is
executed. The answer printout from command SYCLI is received. When CTRL-D (<EOT>) is
pressed, the result printout and the spontaneous printout are received. When CTRL-M
