L lists the contents of virtually any kind of file. By default, it lists text files in their entirety and produces a terse summary of the contents of other file types. The format of the listing depends on the file type.
L recognizes the following file types:
*CF file (used by command file processing) APL random (produced by the APL file system) APL workspace Huffman encoded (produced by the HUFF subsystem) UFAS files (sequential,relative,IDS-II,indexed) ar_directory (produced by the ARCHIVE system) extension editor patch file (produced by $EXTEDIT in batch) freeze file (produced by the "freeze" subsystem) old mailbox object (object deck) OM library ($LKED library) qstar (system-loadable file) random library (object library) random source library (produced by $SRCLIB in batch) rstar (loader input) run unit (Virtual mode system-loadable files) text (standard system format)If L does not recognize the format of a file, it issues the message "Unrecognizable file format". The diagnostic message also tells the file's size, whether the file is random or sequential, and whether it is permanent or temporary.
L does not currently recognize:
OM files - Object Module input for $LKED LD files - Object decks for the LD loader LD libraries - Libraries for the LD loader ISP files - Old style indexed sequential files RFM file - IO8 format data files.
