CLI Support on OpenVMS

  Table of Contents


OpenVMS provides a CLI command interface to the Instant Capacity software. The HP-UX command syntax can be implemented using foreign command symbols. The OpenVMS DCL ICAP command provides DCL command support.

HP-UX Style Commands

The HP-UX command syntax can be used on OpenVMS systems by defining foreign command symbols to the iCAP images. Add the three symbol declarations below to your LOGIN.COM file or to the SYLOGIN file to define commands that use the HP-UX syntax.

$ icapmodify :== $ICAP_MODIFY
$ icapnotify :== $ICAP_NOTIFY
$ icapstatus :== $ICAP_STAT

Command options are specified as described in the HP-UX manpages for each command.

OpenVMS Command Mapping

The following table shows the mapping of the HP-UX iCAP commands and their OpenVMS equivalents.
