Starting the MultiValue Shell

Caché provides the MultiValue shell. In a Windows environment the shell that can be run through a Terminal session. In a Caché supported non-Windows environment, you can access the MultiValue shell through a Telnet session. Complete the following steps to access the MultiValue shell:

  1. In a Windows environment, open the Terminal by clicking the InterSystems Launcher (generated description: cube) in the System tray and then clicking Terminal on the menu. Alternatively, click Start–>Programs–>Caché–>Terminal. In a non-Windows environment connect to Caché through Telnet using a terminal emulator.

  2. Launch the MultiValue shell by entering MV at the prompt.

    
    USER>MV
    
  3. If this is the first time that the MultiValue shell has been invoked Caché performs some initialization. When this is complete Caché displays a welcome message and then the colon (:) prompt.
