Abstract: SKIPAG is a BASIC-PLUS software utility used for
skipping a specified number of blocks of pages in a
RSTS/E data file. A common use for this program would be
to skip to the middle or end of a print file to resume
printing at a specified point. Another use would be to
create 'sub-files' from ASCII data files for use as
test data files. The input file can be any RSTS/E ASCII
file. The output file can be another disk file or device
such as a terminal or printer. Either blocks or pages
may be specified to the program; and both a starting
block (or page), and how many blocks (pages) to be
copied, are optional.
Restrictions: Cannot use wildcards in file names.
Media (Service Charge Code): Write-Up and Listing (DA), 600' Magnetic
