Purpose: File management.
Each Output object describes a file which may be open or closed. There can only be one open Output for each running script. This is the file to which all Print() and Printl() statements write. You can, however, close one Output file and open another.
If the disk is full on any function calls that write to the Output object, the following occur:
- A window asking for a new output filename and disk drive is displayed.
- If the operator responds within 60 seconds, the system proceeds with the new filename.
- If the operator does not respond in 60 seconds, the system attempts to create and write to a temporary file named CMS####.TMP in the current subdirectory of drive C:. #### is a unique number. This is done assuming that the full disk is a floppy diskette. If this fails, the data are lost.
