UTLTOOLS MAIL

Sends a message to one or more other users.

Format

UTLTOOLS MAIL file-spec recipient-address[,...]


Parameters

file-spec

Specifies the file containing a message to be sent to the specified mail recipients. If you omit the file type, the default file type is TXT.

No wild card characters are allowed in the file specification.

recipient-address

Specifies one or more mail addresses to receive the message. A recipient-address may be the name that the user uses to log in, or any other valid mail address construction.

Valid address forms include:
NAME Use the name on the local node. The SWRK_MAIL_TEMPLATE logical name may be used to direct simple names to more explicit addresses. The value of this logical name is in a FAO format. For example, a value of SMTP%"!AS@OURCOMPANY.COM.AU" forces simple names to be sent to the default mail gateway for OURCOMPANY using the Internet SMTP protocol.
NODE::NAME Use the name on the specified node. The DECnet transport is assumed.
NAME@NODE Use the name on the specified node. The appropriate Internet product and TCP/IP transport is assumed.
PRODUCT%"ADDRESS" Use the specified product (eg. FAX, IN, MR, SMTP) and its associated transport and/or protocol in combination with the product specific address.

As an alternative to listing the mail addresses, you can specify a distribution list file containing mail addresses. Simply precede the distribution list file specification with an at sign (@). The file you specify should contain the mail addresses, entered one per line, in the format described above. If you omit the file type, the default file type is DIS. No wild card characters are allowed in the distribution list file specification.


Qualifiers

/SUBJECT="text"

Specifies the subject of the message for the heading. If the text consists of more than one word, any spaces, or nonalphanumeric characters, enclose the text in quotation marks.

Examples

#1

$ UTLTOOLS MAIL MESSAGE.TXT JONESAB) 
      


UTLTOOLS MOVE

Moves a file or a set of files to a target file. This command behaves like a DCL RENAME command if the source and target files are on the same device or like a combination of the DCL COPY and DELETE commands if on different devices. In each case the UTLTOOLS MOVE command also supporters some extra qualifiers.

Format

UTLTOOLS MOVE input-filespec[,...] output-filespec


Parameters

input-filespec[,...]

Specifies the name of one or more existing files to be moved. The asterisk (*) and the percent sign (%) wildcard characters are allowed in the directory specification, file name, file type, or version number fields of the file specification. When wildcard characters are used, all files whose specifications satisfy the wildcard fields are moved.

output-filespec

Specifies the name of the output file to which the input is moved. The UTLTOOLS MOVE command uses the device, directory, file name, and file type of the input file as defaults for fields in the output file that are either unspecified, or are indicated by the asterisk (*) and the percent sign (%) wildcard characters. Wildcard characters in corresponding fields of the input and output file specification result in multiple move operations. The UTLTOOLS MOVE command supplies output file version numbers in the following ways:

Qualifiers

/BACKUP

Modifies the time value specified with the /BEFORE or /SINCE qualifier. /BACKUP selects files according to the dates of their most recent backups. This qualifier is incompatible with the other qualifiers that also allow you to select files according to time attributes: /CREATED, /EXPIRED and /MODIFIED. If you specify none of these four time qualifiers, the default is /CREATED.

/BEFORE[=time]

Selects only those files dated prior to the specified time. You can specify time as an absolute time, as a combination of absolute and delta times, or as one of the following keywords: TODAY (default), TOMORROW, or YESTERDAY. Specify one of the following qualifiers with /BEFORE to indicate the time attribute to be used as the basis for selection: /BACKUP, /CREATED (default), /EXPIRED or /MODIFIED.

See the OpenVMS DCL Concepts Manual for complete information on specifying time values.

/BINARY

/NOBINARY (Default)

Specifies whether binary file types are forced to have standard binary file attributes during the UTLTOOLS move operation. The standard binary file attributes are the equivalent to those set by the command UTLTOOLS SET FILE/ATTRIBUTES=(RFM=FIX,LRL=512,RAT=NONE).

By default, file attributes are not forced to the standard binary file attributes.

/BY_OWNER[=uic]

Selects only those files whose owner user identification code (UIC) matches the specified owner UIC. The default UIC is that of the current process.

Specify the UIC using standard UIC format as described in the OpenVMS DCL Concepts Manual.

/CONFIRM

/NOCONFIRM (default)

Controls whether a request is issued before each move operation to confirm that the operation should be performed on that file. The following responses are valid:


     YES      NO       QUIT 
     TRUE     FALSE    [Ctrl/Z]
     1        0        ALL 
              [Return]

You can use any combination of uppercase and lowercase letters for word responses. Word responses can be abbreviated to one or more letters (for example, T, TR, or TRU for TRUE), but these abbreviations must be unique. Affirmative answers are YES, TRUE, and 1. Negative answers include: NO, FALSE, 0, and pressing the Return key. Entering QUIT or pressing Ctrl/Z indicates that you want to stop processing the command at that point. When you respond by entering ALL, the command continues to process, but no further prompts are given. If you type a response other than one of those in the list, DCL issues an error message and redisplays the prompt.

/CREATED

Modifies the time value specified with the /BEFORE or /SINCE qualifier. /CREATED selects files based on their dates of creation. This qualifier is incompatible with the other qualifiers that also allow you to select files according to time attributes: /BACKUP, /EXPIRED and /MODIFIED. If you specify none of these four time qualifiers, the default is /CREATED.

/EXCLUDE=(file-spec[,...])

Excludes the specified files from the move operation. You can include a directory but not a device in the file specification. Wildcard characters are allowed in the file specification. However, you cannot use relative version numbers to exclude a specific version. If you provide only one file specification, you can omit the parentheses.

/EXPIRED

Modifies the time value specified with the /BEFORE or /SINCE qualifier. /EXPIRED selects files according to their expiration dates. (The expiration date is set with the SET SECURITY/EXPIRED command.) The /EXPIRED qualifier is incompatible with the other qualifiers that also allow you to select files according to time attributes: /BACKUP, /CREATED and /MODIFIED. If you specify none of these four time qualifiers, the default is /CREATED.

/LOG[=(option[,...]) (default)

/NOLOG

Outputs messages to the output file depending upon the option(s) specified.

The following log options are available:
Option Meaning
[NO]ALL Log all information. This is the default action.
[NO]ERROR Log errors.
[NO]NONE Don't log any information. This is the equivalent to /NOLOG.
[NO]NOTFOUND Log files that were not found.
[NO]SUCCESS Log files that were moved.

/MODIFIED

Modifies the time value specified with the /BEFORE or /SINCE qualifier. /MODIFIED selects files according to the dates on which they were last modified. This qualifier is incompatible with the other qualifiers that also allow you to select files according to time attributes: /BACKUP, /CREATED and /EXPIRED. If you specify none of these four time modifiers, the default is /CREATED.

/RETAIN=(item[,...])

/NORETAIN (Default)

Specifies whether certain file attributes are retained during the UTLTOOLS move operation.

Valid items include:
Item Usage
CDT Creation date and time
RDT Revision date time

/RLF (Default)

/NORLF

Specifies whether related file specification handling is used during the UTLTOOLS move operation.

By default, /RLF is assumed.

/SELECT=(keyword[,...])

Allows you to select files based on a number of criteria. Choose one of the following keywords:
ACL
NOACL
Selects files that have an associated ACL or files that do not (NOACL keyword).
ATTRIBUTES=(option[,...]) Selects files which have particular attributes. The following options are supported:
Option Description
[NO]BACKUP Selects files which have backups enabled (BACKUP) or disabled (NOBACKUP)
LRL=MAXIMUM=size Selects files which have a longest record size less than or equal to the specified value.
LRL=MINIMUM=size Selects files which have a longest record size greater than or equal to the specified value.
ORG=type Selects files which have the specified organization. Valid organizations include:

  • INDEXED
  • RELATIVE
  • SEQUENTIAL
RFM=type Selects files which have the specified record format. Valid record formats include:
  • STREAM
  • STREAMCR
  • STREAMLF
  • UNDEFINED
  • VARIABLE
  • VFC
FILE=(option[,...]) Selects portions of the file specification for display purposes. The /SELECT=FILE qualifier is used to turn off specific portions by explicit or implicit specification of the options. Possible options are:
  • [NO]NODE
  • [NO]DEVICE
  • [NO]DIRECTORY
  • [NO]NAME
  • [NO]TYPE
  • [NO]VERSION

/SELECT=FILE qualifier cannot be used with the /FULL qualifier.

ONLINE
NOONLINE
Selects files that are online or shelved.
PRESHELVED
NOPRESHELVED
Selects files that are preshelved or not preshelved.
SHELVABLE
NOSHELVABLE
Selects files that are shelvable or not shelvable.
SIZE=(option[,...]) Selects files according to their size. Possible options are:
Option Description
MAXIMUM=n Selects files that have fewer blocks than the value of n, which defaults to 1,073,741,823. Use with MINIMUM=n to specify a size range for files to be selected.
MINIMUM=n Selects files that have blocks equal to or greater than the value of n. Use with MAXIMUM=n to specify a size range for files to be selected.
(MINIMUM=n, MAXIMUM=n) Selects files whose block size falls within the specified MINIMUM and MAXIMUM range.

/SINCE=[time]

Selects only those files dated after the specified time. You can specify time as an absolute time, a combination of absolute and delta times, or as one of the following keywords: TODAY (default), TOMORROW, or YESTERDAY. Specify one of the following qualifiers with /BEFORE to indicate the time attribute to be used as the basis for selection: /BACKUP, /CREATED (default), /EXPIRED or /MODIFIED.

UTLTOOLS RENAME

Renames a file or a set of files to a target file. This command is similar to the DCL RENAME command with the addition of some extra qualifiers.

Format

UTLTOOLS RENAME input-filespec[,...] output-filespec


Parameters

input-filespec[,...]

Specifies the name of one or more files whose specifications are to be changed. The asterisk (*) and the percent sign (%) wildcard characters are allowed in the directory specification, file name, file type, or version number fields of the file specification. When wildcard characters are used, all files whose specifications satisfy the wildcard fields are renamed.

output-filespec

Provides the new file specification to be applied to the input file. The UTLTOOLS RENAME command uses the device, directory, file name, and file type of the input file as defaults for fields in the output file that are either unspecified, or are indicated by the asterisk (*) and the percent sign (%) wildcard characters. Wildcard characters in corresponding fields of the input and output file specification result in multiple rename operations. The UTLTOOLS RENAME command supplies output file version numbers in the following ways:

Qualifiers

/BACKUP

Modifies the time value specified with the /BEFORE or /SINCE qualifier. /BACKUP selects files according to the dates of their most recent backups.
