Language-Dependent Name of Cursored Control Code Display

This article describes an easy to learn and use procedure for identifying the name of control codes cursored.

The first status line is used to present to the operator information about the current foreground task. It is always present; however, all of the fields may not always be in use. The fields in the first status line are separated by a (Field Separator). The Field Separators are always present on the display even though a particular field may be empty. The fields are as follows: Context Field 20 characters

Field Separator 1 character

Document Name 30 characters

Field Separator 1 character

Audit Window 19 characters

Field Separator 1 character

Reserved 8 characters

The Audit Window Field is used to display a code name for the cursored control codes in the viewport. A unique international symbol is defined for each of these control codes, and this symbol is displayed at the cursor position in the viewport while simultaneously displaying the corresponding code name for the control. This aids the user in the identification of those control codes which are not readily recognized from the symbol shown in the viewport.
