Lister Parameter File

Lister reads the Lister CONTROL parameter file to determine the amount and type of information on the Lister report.

Note the following for the format of the Lister parameter file:

  • The parameters in the parameter file can be in any order.
  • You can list multiple parameters on a single line.
  • You can split parameters across multiple lines.
  • There is no termination character.
  • There is no continuation character.
  • The comment character is the percent sign (%). The comment character can appear anywhere on a line and anything after the comment character is ignored.

The remainder of this section describes the syntax and semantics of each parameter. Enter the parameters in the Lister parameter file, following the commented section that describes each parameter.
