The HUSH statement controls character echo of input and output in programs and procs. HUSH also affects output to a COMO file.

It takes the general form:

HUSH { ON | OFF | INPUT | expression }


  • ON suppresses input and output
  • OFF resumes input and output
  • INPUT suppresses input only
  • expression must evaluate to one of the above values

HUSH acts as a toggle. If it is used without a qualifier, it changes the current state. It is not recommended that the statement be used to shut off output display unless it is really necessary. When HUSH ON is used, all output is suppressed including error messages and requests for information.

An example of use is as:
