Let's see if someone can help me. I want to create an empty indexed file that contains an integer key with the name LINE and a text string with up to 1024 bytes. I figure I'm going to have to use the CREATE command with the /FDL qualifier, but cannot figure out how to do this. I then want to be able to use the WRITE command to right a record to this indexed file. How do you specify the INDEX or KEY to the write command? Fortunately, I'm going to be writing records that start with a key of 1, then 2, then 3, and so forth and so on. I will then close this file and then use read/key (or read/index, which ever is the correct one) to read the line I need from this index file. I may read 100 records and then want to go back and read starting from the 10th record, and possibly skipping around the file. I want to do this in DCL. Any help would be appreciated.

malmberg December 12 2017 HPE only makes the most current version of OpenVMS Alpha / IA64 /VAX available to hobbyists. When I had access to the Alliance 1 program it was the same. No public downloads are allowed by HPE.
