  • Using Operating System Commands
    The Operating System Commands menu provides four ways to access the operating system and execute commands directly from the QAD application. Use them as a convenient way of viewing and manipulating information.
    Use Exit to Operating System (36.22.1) to invoke a UNIX or NT session. To return to the QAD application, enter Exit.
    Use Program Execute (36.22.3) to run a Progress program. If the program is not in the current directory, specify the path.
    Use Program/Text File Display (36.22.4) to display the content of an ASCII file, such as a program or print file. If the file is not in the current directory, specify the path.
    Note: Add this function to the User Menu so that users can generate reports to a file and quickly review the content.
    Use Disk Space Inquiry (36.22.13) to execute an operating system command to display statistics regarding the current database file size.
