SET MEMBERCOUNT

Turns set-processing messages on and off.

Syntax

SET MEMBERCOUNT ON|OFF

Comments

When MEMBERCOUNT is set ON, messages tracking the progress of set-processing commands are output. Messages overwrite each other at intervals specified by the SET MEMBERINTERVAL command.

Progress messages take the form nnn processed. Messages are output with a carriage return but with no line feed; therefore, successive messages are written to the same screen position.

The printing of progress messages can slow execution slightly.

Example

> set membercount on
> set member interval 10
> find Employees
  200 processed.
200 selected.
>

The number of records processed and selected are displayed in increments of ten until all records are processed.
