MINOR control statement

This control statement specifies the name of a Classic Interface minor command that should be protected.


The Classic Interface protects the minor commands independently of the major commands. Therefore, any changes to minor commands apply to all minor commands with the same name and attributes, regardless of their major commands.

Access to a minor command requires access to the appropriate major command. If you do not specify an EXTERNAL keyword, the associated major controls access this minor command.

A minor command in a run is not checked for multiple MINOR control statements. The last MINOR control statement for the minor command takes effect.


The format of the MINOR control statement is:



cccc denotes the name of the minor command that should be protected.
