How do I turn off output and then back on for system messages to a DECterm?

How do I turn off output and then back on for system messages to a DECterm?

I am running a COM file and do not want the end-user to see system messages on the DECterm.

Can SET TERM/NOECHO be used or is there another way to do this?

Explain what you mean by System Messages? to most of us, reply/disable (as opposed to reply/enable) would do this for system operator messages.

Or are you looking at reducing the detail in normal error/warning messages?

Please explain.

$ SET VERIFY and $ SET NOVERIFY to enable/disable echo. You may also want to redirect sys$error

If you want more control over the display, you can also redfine SYS$OUTPUT and/or SYS$ERROR. For example:

$ DEFINE SYS$OUTPUT USER.LOG
$ DEASSIGN SYS$OUTPUT

A sample is when I mount a floppy:

mount/for $100$dva0:

When the floopy is inserted, I get the following message:

%MOUNT-I-MOUNTED, mounted on $100$dva0:

When the floppy is not there, I get a fatal "-F-" message.

How can I turn off these messages and then turn them back on again?

I think you want to use:

$ set message /noFACILITY /noSEVERITY /noIDENTIFICATION /noTEXT

- leave off the 'no' to re-enable.

$ msgsettings = f$environment("MESSAGE")
$ set message /nofac/nosever/noident/notext
$ {command}
$ set message 'msgsettings'
