Most commands are allowed during a batch job but certain restrictions apply:
- the first character of a SINTRAN command line must be the @, which corresponds to the leading character typed by the system in interactive mode.
- all command parameters must be given on the same line as the command name itself because the system cannot ask for the missing parameters.
- although they are legal, some commands are not well suited within a batch job file. Among these are, for example, the @LOOK-AT command.
- the commands @[[LOGOUT]] and @[[MODE]] are not allowed within a batch job.
If errors occur within a batch job, the offending error message is written on the <batch-output-file> together with the message
***BATCH JOB ABORTED***
and the job will be aborted.
If errors occurs in accessing the batch input or output files, an error message will be given on the console terminal.
