timprint - Display a timing table file


timprint table rows


TIMPRINT displays a table file by calling theSTDAS TPRINT task. The TPRINT parameters are set by TIMPRINT for convenient display of the timing data tables. Most notably, the table is printed with a 132 character width so that all of the columns in the table are included in the display. Users should set their console window to accommodate 132 character width. The table file name can be indicated with or without the ".tab" extension.


table = prompt = table file name

A list of tables to be printed separated by a comma. If the list includes more than one table a blank line will be printed between them.

rows = "-" prompt = Range of rows to print

Used to indicate the range of rows which are to be printed. The default value "-" means to print all rows. The first ten rows could be specified as rows="1-10" or just rows="-10". To display the first 10 rows and all the rows from 900 to the last inclusive, use rows="-10,900-". Rows="1,3,7,26" will print only those four rows. It is not an error to specify rows larger than the largest row number; they will be ignored.

(prparam = yes) [boolean]

When prparam = yes, the header parameters of the table are printed.

	xt> timprint
