jshow

Description 

The jshow command can be used to find jBASE files or programs. The command takes the general form: 

jshow {Options} Name {Name ...}

Where: 

  • Name is the Name of file, subroutine, program or dll/shared object,  
  • Options can be:
Option
Explanation
-a
display subroutine names in dll/shared object (Note that under Unix, this must be the complete path to the shared object)
-c
display compile-time and source file
-d
display general information about the system
-f
file name only search
-h
display this help screen
-i
ignore case insensitivity and do a case sensitive search
-p
program name only search
-s
subroutine name only search
-v
verbose mode

 

Info

When performing a jshow -c on a program/subroutine you may see (DUP) as the display shows multiple occurrences. This is normal for non-subroutines (program) in that programs - when cataloged - produce a binary executable and a shared library (the latter is for efficiency when executing or running a the jshell).

However, you can also see (DUP) if the program/subroutine has bee cataloged into multiple bin/lib directories. (See CATALOG)
