New Mass11 User Setup Procedures
However, the user setup files which some of you are using will be required to change at this time. Most of the content of these setup files is common to all users, so we've moved it into a system-wide setup file which all users will call. This file ( WP$DIR:M11SYSINI) will call your personal setup file, where you can set the default directory (``go to the directory where your Mass11 files are'') or do other user specific customization. If you don't want a personal setup file that's fine too.
If you redefine MASS11 in your login file then the following applies to you. If you don't know, ask me for help and we'll decide whether or not you have to change things. If you redefine MASS11, then the following changes must be made to your personalized Mass11 setup.
First, edit your LOGIN.COM file. Remove any lines that redefine the symbol MASS11. They might look like:
$ MASS11 :== somethingThe system will define the MASS11 symbol correctly for you. If you keep two Mass11 directories, you probably also have a symbol for SMASS11. Change it to look like one of the following:
$ MASS*11 :== something
$ MASS11 == ``something''
$ MASS*11 == ``something''
$ SMASS11 :== 'MASS11' SECURENext, add a new line to LOGIN.COM. Decide where your mass11 setup file lives. Many people have a logical like USR$UTILS:. Some people just put the setup file in a subdirectory and refer to it as [username.something]. Whichever form you use, substitute that for the word WHERE in the following. Don't forget to include the square brackets or the colon, depending on the form you use. Add a new line:
$ SMASS*11 :== 'MASS11' SECURE
$ SMASS11 == `` ' 'MASS11' SECURE ''
$ SMASS*11 == `` ' 'MASS11' SECURE ''
$ USER_M11_USRINI :== WHERE:M11USRININext, copy the new version of the user initialization file to your WHERE area. Decide whether you have been using Mass11 with two Mass11 directories (``public'' and ``secure'') or only one. Then copy the proper template file into your WHERE area as M11USRINI.COM:
$ USER_M11_USRINI :== [ WHERE]M11USRINI
$ SET DEF WHEREIf you have two Mass11 directories then you want the version with DUALMASS11 in the name, and you probably don't need to change the file at all. If you previously copied your M11USRINI file from Al Thomas, then this is the one you want, and you don't need to change it unless your LOGIN.COM doesn't define MASS11_PRIVATE or MASS11_PUBLIC (in which case you had an older version).
$ COPY WP$DIR:M11USRINI_TEMPLATE.COM M11USRINI.COM
$ COPY WP$DIR:M11USRINI_DUALMASS11_TEMPLATE.COM M11USRINI.COM
If you don't have ``secure'' and ``public'' Mass11 areas, then you want the template file without ``dual'' in the name, and you may need to edit it. Change it where it says ``Edit the following line'', if you need to change it.
Now you have the current version of file M11USRINI.COM. If you have a file called M11.COM in your ``WHERE'' area, delete it. You no longer need it.
ctrl-RThis information is also available in HELP by typing HELP @FERMIHELP QDIRECTOR. The QDIRECTOR program remembers which printer you want by a file it calls TALx.QDIR. See writeup RD Controls Software Release 49 ``USER_LANDFILL_SITE'' for a new means of moving this file out of your SYS$LOGIN directory.
