[SIC\]EXAMINE [Name1] [Name2] [...] [NameN] [/GLOBAL] [/FUNCTION]
[/HEADER] [/ADDRESS] [/ALIAS]
List variables or functions.
If the /FUNCTION option is not present, EXAMINE without argument gives
the list of known variables with their respective types. Each variable
name is followed by its definition and the keywords "GBL" for GLOBAL
(interpreter level 0) variables, LCL(lev) for LOCAL variables at inter-
pretor level "lev" (viz., in a procedure), WR for READ/WRITE variables,
RD for READONLY variables.
With one or more arguments, EXAMINE will usually type the content of the
specified variables (local variables have priority). But:
- If the argument ends by the % character, it is assumed to indicate a
structure or an image header, and all associated header variables
- Wildcarding is permitted: if the argument contains one or more "*"
character, all compatible variables names are listed.
- In any case, typing an ambiguous variable name will generate a list
With the /FUNCTION option, lists the definition of the specified or all
(no command argument) user-defined functions.
With the /GLOBAL option, lists only the GLOBAL variables, as opposed to
LOCAL variables (i.e, in a loop or a macro)
With the /HEADER option, lists only the variables having an associated
header (i.e., the known images).
With the /ALIAS option, lists only the Aliases and their association.
The /ADDRESS option is used for debugging. It gives the internal vari-
