optional-parameter-to-command ...

The first three (3) parameters are strictly for the purposes of maintaining the inuse file. The other parameters facilitate keeping a ‘reference’ copy of the contents of the configuration management tool up to date.

The seconds-to-wait parameter specifies the number of seconds to wait before performing the command, this may be particularly useful for avoiding deadlock situations. Specifying a seconds to wait of other than 0 in a windows environment, forces the del2list command to operate as an asynchronous process (in Unix use the & operator as normal to create an asynchronous process).

Whilst the last four (4) parameters are optional, if you wish to specify a later parameter, you must specify the earlier parameters (e.g., you cannot specify command-to-perform without specifying seconds-to-wait and default-directory, but they may be 0 and .).

The filenames may optionally contain special strings that are replaced by del2list before it writes the filename to the inuse file:

String Replaced by
:local: nothing
:cwd: current working directory
/ \ in windows platforms
\ / in non-windows platforms

add2list recognises the following options:

Option Meaning
-rstring;string String to remove from the first 3 parameters. This is useful for removing duplicate drive specifiers, or mount points from the filenames.
-v Verbose mode, prints the command line
-x Do not activate asynchronous mode. Asynchronous mode is only activated on Windows platforms.
-j~ combine parameters delimited by a ~, replace all spaces with separator characters (eg: for Windows:\\ or for Unix:/)..
-afilename.asn Assignment file to use for redirection of .frm, .aps, .svc and .rpt files.
