Not sure if this is what you are looking for?

$write sys$output f$getsyi("console_version")
$write sys$output f$getsyi("palcode_version")

Re: Alpha Console Firmware

Mario,

we also use the lexicals that Peter names.
It is much easier than SDA to incorporate in a procedure.
It depends on your VMS version though. It has only become available relatively recently ( 7.2 maybe ? )

Proost.

Have one on me.

$write sys$output f$getsyi("console_version")
$write sys$output f$getsyi("palcode_version")

works on VMS V7.1 and V6.2
