Advanced File Definition


When FileMan routines are invoked with the local variable DUZ(0) set to the @-sign, the user is understood by FileMan to be an M-proficient programmer who has "programmer access." Those working with programmer access can control certain file-definition options that are otherwise handled invisibly by FileMan. These features are described in this chapter.

See the "Creating Files and Fields" chapter of the "VA FileMan Advanced User Manual" for a description of the file and field definition options available to everyone.
