This program allows you to examine the descriptors attached to each file. The output can be directed to the VDU or the spooler or both. You are asked which descriptors you wish to find and the KEYWORDS which you require. i.e. OBSERVER, OBJECT etc. (the default is all). You are then invited to input the number of the file to be examined in the format Rnnn. There are many KEYWORDS and to see what is available you should request BOTH in reply to output and then ALL in reply to KEYWORDS. A full listing of the descriptors of the requested file will then appear on both the VDU and line printer. To exit from the program simply press <cr> when asked again for the file to be examined.
