SET INFORMATION

Enables or suppresses the display of information messages.

Syntax

SET INFORMATION ON|OFF

Comments

The INFORMATION option is set ON by default.

When INFORMATION is ON, information messages are displayed. Setting INFORMATION to OFF suppresses the display of such messages. Information messages are of the form:

nnn selected

after a FIND command

nnn added

after an ADD command

nnn changed

after a CHANGE command

nnn deleted

after a DELETE command

All types of messages can be simultaneously turned on or off with a SET MESSAGES command.

The SET INFORMATION command has no effect on the logging of messages in the "error trace" file. Message logging is governed by the configuration option error trace.

Example

set messages on
set information off

The preceding commands set error and warning messages on, but information messages off.
