    When a value won't fit into a command parameter on a prompted display, you can make the parameter bigger. You can make many parameters larger and larger until they are up to 512 bytes long. Type an ampersand and a blank ("& ") into the first positions of the parameter, and then press <Enter>. The parameter field on the screen should be bigger. Do it again, and the parameter field should get bigger again. If there is a value already in the parameter field, don't worry about it. The whole value will be there after you press <Enter>. You can test it easily enough without actually executing the command. Many parameters have fixed lengths and can't be expanded. But parameters that hold paths are examples that are intended to have many possible sizes on a screen. Tom

    ...we can use command line with out prompting actual command. Once you learn the basic commands that you'll use again and again, the command line becomes more useful. One of the most useful command lines is shown by CALL QCMD. The QCMD command line can handle very large command strings after you press F11 for full-screen mode. Tom
