Hello everybody,

The documentation lists a number of these variables e.g @OPR, @DATE and so on, but there appears to be loads of others that I have read about on these pages and can't find any documentation for e.g. @CURLSNAME. Is there a complete list of these variables somewhere?

Thanks

David

Unfortunately our guest is correct. They are not listed in any one place in the documentation. When a new version comes out, we do a string search of the kernel which is the pro.exe (windows) and pro (Unix) executable. In Unix you can use the following command: strings pro | grep @ > textfile
It would be nice if the docs were more thorough.

Lew,

Ran the strings command and got a list, it's a valuable start.

Thanks

Why not put the list up here and we can document them for you. There are some very useful variables that are not properly documented.

Chris,

Great idea, I was just about to make the same suggestion :D

Perhaps we need a section for this type of thing, or is it covered by Files/utils?

regards

If we just post them all in here (ie on this thread) to start with, I'll tidy it up and create a single list.

Then I'll post it as a single topic and make it 'Sticky' so it stays at the top, like the 'Documentation' post...

Rob.

Here's the list I've produced It's created from Kernel Version 5.5000, Revision 3.1.2 (Aug 04, 03).

Note:
Some of these are not variables - @LITERAL is the key used for storing changes to the default strings (see other threads)
@RFUNCT appears twice - once is a reference to the variable and once to the actual Function (I think). @SFUNCT is also a reference to the Function name to be called if no Security Link function is present.

Anyone want to cross-reference this against the manual & see what's not documented there?
