Calling the Command Processor
Previous Topic  Next Topic 

Stat/Transfer has a command processor that will perform transfers using a copy-like syntax and which allows "batch" jobs to be run for repetitive transfers.  You can select variables and cases, automatically optimize the output variable types, or change output types manually.


You can give commands to the Stat/Transfer command processor in different ways: directly (at the Stat/Transfer prompt, or at the operating system prompt), or from a stored command file.

 

Starting Transfers from the Stat/Transfer Command Prompt

Starting from Windows

Go to the shortcut Stat/Transfer Command Processor in the Stat/Transfer folder under Programs on the Start menu.


The Stat/Transfer prompt will appear.


Starting from the Operating System Prompt

You can also call the command processor directly from the operating system prompt, by typing 'st'. The Stat/Transfer prompt will appear.


When you call the program, you will either need to be in the directory in which you installed Stat/Transfer, or have that directory on your path, or precede 'st' by the path to Stat/Transfer.


Starting Transfers from the Operating System Prompt

You can run a transfer directly from the operating system prompt.  If you give the 'st' command and you give input and output file names, or a command file name, you will carry out an immediate data transfer, without seeing the Stat/Transfer prompt.
