The DELETE.COMMON command deletes named common blocks.

 

 

Format

 

DELETE.COMMON name

DELETE.COMMON ALL

DELETE.COMMON SAVING name1 {name2...}

 

where

 

nameis the name of the common block to be deleted. The keyword ALL causes all named common blocks to be deleted.

 

 

The DELETE.COMMON command deletes the named common block. It is particularly useful when debugging programs.

 

Common blocks can only be deleted if there is no active program referencing them. When the ALL keyword is used, blocks that cannot be deleted are ignored and no error is reported. When deleting a specific common block, a non-fatal error occurs if the block is in use.

 

Use of the SAVING keyword deletes all common blocks except for those named in the command.

 

 

Examples

 

DELETE.COMMON COM1

 

This command deletes common block COM1.

 

 

DELETE.COMMON ALL

 

This command deletes all named common blocks.
