Operating System: RSTS/E V8.0 Source Language: BASIC-PLUS Memory

Abstract: This program allows the user to specify a wildcard file
specification to edit, and then repeatedly invokes EDT
(version 2 or 3) to do the editing chores.
This program does not need privileges and should not be
privileged. While actual editing of other users' files
is not allowed by RSTS/E, cross-account directories may
be obtained on systems where it is not normally allowed.
The program may be RUN or entered by two CCL commands.
If the program is RUN, it will prompt for a filename
specification. If entered via the CCL commands, it
expects the file spec in core common. This program
should not be CHAINed to except at line zero.
Several switches are allowed as modifiers to the file
spec string. These have the following effects:
/RO or /MO:8192 Opens the files read-only
/DE or /K Deletes EDT temp file
/ZE Zeroes EDT temp file
/P:nn Pauses nn seconds between printing
message and chaining to EDT for edit
The CCL command are any chosen by the system manager.
Two entry points are available: line 30000 will edit the
files specified, line 30500 will append the /RO switch
to the file spec. Suggested CCL commands are SELECT and
Restrictions: 255 files maximum (may be changed).
