TOPS-20 Commands Reference Manual
Disengages another job from its terminal.
@UNATTACH (USER) name (JOB #) number PASSWORD:password
|name||is the user name of the job's owner.|
|number||is the job number.
Default number - the only job, or only job besides your current (attached) job, logged in under the user name you give.
|password||is the associated password (not requested if you are currently logged in under the same user name as the job that you are disengaging).|
Log-in Not Necessary
You do not have to be logged in to give the UNATTACH command.
Freeing Hung Terminals
The UNATTACH command is useful for freeing a terminal that, because of program or hardware errors, is no longer under control of the user. The command UNATTACH n can be more effective than LOGOUT n for this purpose.
Effect on Memory and Terminal
The UNATTACH command does not affect memory and leaves your own terminal at TOPS-20 command level. The other job is left in its current state (usually suspended) and the disengaged terminal is left in the state before log-in.
|ADVISE||for sending commands to another job|
|ATTACH||for joining another job to your terminal|
|DETACH||for disengaging your own job from its terminal|
