Many STx commands support the
/? 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.
- There are a few commands where, before introducing the silent option, the
/Sflag 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.
/Lisentfor the LOAD command or
/Ilsentfor 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.
