Silent

Many STx commands support the /Silent, or /? option, though for some commands it has to be abbreviated as /ilent due to /S already having been used for different purposes. Where available, this option leads to exceptional situations being reported as warnings instead of errors.

Notes:

  • There are a few commands where, before introducing the silent option, the /S flag had already been assigned to a different option. In order not to break existing user code, for the respective commands, the silent flag is indicated by a different letter (e.g. /Lisent for the LOAD command or /Ilsent for the STx command NEW).
  • Since STx version 4.0 the general flag /? can be used to specifiy the silent option. This general flag was implemeted to simplify script programming and to increase orthogonality - at least in this respect.
