View and edit a selection: EDIT (ED)

In order to use this command a list-file must have been created earlier. This can be done by using the /FILE qualifier with the SELECT or LIST command; see for details under the LIST command.

The list file can be processed by either the (default) VAX/EDT editor or the TPU/EVE editor (use the /TPU qualifier). The following operations are recognized as legitimate usage of the editor:

Do not use EDIT to make any other alterations, as ARCQUERY will detect errors when comparing the old and the new list files. Thus, the edit mode can only be used to make a selection of particular lines from a table, but not to alter individual table items.
