1 ATTACHTransfers control from your current process to the specified process. The LATCP ATTACH command is similar to the DCL ATTACH command. For example, from the DCL command level you can enter the DCL SPAWN command to create a LATCP subprocess without ending your DCL session, execute several LATCP commands at the LATCP prompt, then use the ATTACH command to return to DCL. Format ATTACH [process-name] 2 Parameter process-name Specifies the name of a parent process or spawned subprocess to which control passes. The process must already exist, be part of your current job, and share the same input stream as your current process. Process names can contain from 1 to 15 alphanumeric characters. If a connection to the specified process cannot be made, LATCP displays an error message. If you specify the /PID qualifier, do not use the process name parameter. If you omit the /PID qualifier, you must use the process name parameter. To display processes, use the DCL SHOW SYSTEM command. 2 Qualifier /PID /PID=pid Specifies the process identification (PID) of the process that will have terminal control. When you specify a PID, you can omit the leading zeros. If you specify a PID, do not use the process name parameter. If you omit the PID qualifier, you must use the process name parameter. 2 Example $ SET PROCESS/NAME="TOP_LEVEL" $ SPAWN RUN SYS$SYSTEM:LATCP LATCP> SHOW NODE/ALL . . . LATCP> ATTACH "TOP_LEVEL" $ In this example, the user enters the DCL SPAWN command to create a LATCP subprocess and uses LATCP to display the status ￼of all nodes known to the local node. After using LATCP, the user enters the ATTACH command to return to the DCL command level.
