OpenVMS Fundamentals

Defining Your Environment


You can tailor the VMS environment to suit your needs using symbols and logical names. You can type the commands as you need them during your session or you can
create a command procedure, called a login command procedure to execute a collection of commands each time you login. This file is always called LOGIN.COM and should be placed in your top-level directory. Figure 2.8 is a sample LOGIN.COM procedure. It illustrates some commands you might want to use in your login command procedure.

You can copy a sample LOGIN.COM file to your home directory using the command:

$ COPY STSCIC::CLU$COMMON:[USERMAINT]SAMPLE-LOGIN.COM SYS$LOGIN
