OUTPUT

OUTPUT will output data from an INFO file into an ascii file

Must be done from  INFO  (not Tables)

When creating an ascii file, must precede the file name with the symbols to move up one directory level (  ..\  ) to be out of info folder

If there are more than 999 records, INFO will insert a comma in the record number (e.g. 1,000).  To prevent the commas:   

enter command> CALC  $COMMA-SWITCH = -1

Example to create an output file with user-id and x,y coordinates that will be used to generate a point coverage:

arc: INFO

ENTER USER NAME> ARC     

ENTER COMMAND>  SELECT    AIRPORTS             

ENTER COMMAND > CALC    $COMMA-SWITCH = -1

ENTER COMMAND >  OUTPUT      ..\points.gen

ENTER COMMAND >  PRINT  COVER-ID,   ‘,’,    LONG,    ‘,’,   LAT   (adds commas also)

ENTER COMMAND >  PRINT ‘END’

ENTER COMMAND >  OUTPUT ARC.NSP     (directs future output back to normal default)

ENTER COMMAND>   Q STOP
