Command line options may be entered on the VIEW command line.

 

For example,

 

         VIEW FileName [options]

 

The following options are valid:

/A

View the file in ASCII mode. This is the default mode and will only need to be specified in order to override an existing EBCDIC mode.

 

/B

View the file in EBCDIC mode.

/E

V will start viewing the file from the end instead of the beginning.

/FLAT

Enables Flat Text Mode

/GB

Enables Greenbar Mode

/H

This will force the file to be viewed in Hex mode.

/I

A new instance of V will be started (multiple calls to VIEW are usually handled by a single instance of V)

/ICRCR

Enables the Ignore Consecutive CRs option

Enables the Ignore Form Feed option

/L

V will display the last file that it viewed. This will be the first file in the Recent Files list.

This forces a file to be opened in text mode (opposite of /H)

Notes

The options are not case sensitive.

 

You can use an equals (=) instead of a colon (:). For example, /L=20 instead of /L:20
