Using the MultiValue Shell

You can use the MultiValue shell to do all of the following:

  • Execute MultiValue Commands.

  • Execute MultiValue Queries.

  • Execute PROCs.

  • Compile and execute MVBasic routines.

  • Execute MVBasic Commands.

  • Execute ObjectScript Commands.

To execute an MVBasic command directly in the shell, precede the command with a semicolon and a space, for example:


USER: ; PRINT "HELLO, WORLD!"
HELLO, WORLD!

To execute an ObjectScript command directly in the shell, precede the command with COS, for example:


USER:COS WRITE "HELLO,WORLD!"
HELLO,WORLD!  

The remainder of this part of the tutorial demonstrates the use of each of the remaining capabilities on the above list.

Note:
