Makes the top item of the DMS stack equivalent to a particular data buffer.

Format: <buffernumber> DEV>STK

Example: 2 DEV>STK

Comments: Valid values of buffernumber are 1 (for the FOS/GEC5 buffer); 2 (for the EEV2 buffer) and 4 (for the IPCS buffer). This command is useful when data transfer to the Vax 4000 is not possible, as data from the top of the stack can be stored on the DMS disc with PUT-FILE. The command assigns pointers, and it is not necessary to repeat each time a new frame is read into the buffer, this frame will automatically become the top item on the stack.
