VOC R-Type Records - Remote Pointers
An R type VOC entry points to a record in another file which is constructed in the same way as an executable (M, PA, R, S or V type) VOC entry.
R-type VOC entries are used to:
•Move large paragraphs and menus out of the VOC as large records degrade the performance of the hashing process.
•Reference a common version of a VOC item to be used from multiple accounts.
•Add security checks prior to command execution.
The record name in field 3 is the record in the target file that holds the item to be executed.
An R-type VOC record can optionally hold the name of a catalogued security subroutine in field 4. This subroutine can be used to determine whether the user is to be allowed to execute the command pointed to by the R-type record. If the validation fails or the subroutine cannot be found in the catalogue a message is displayed:
This command is restricted (verb)
