set -A

Here goes, my first post on this forum.

Google is not very friendly today. I do not have the man pages for the set command on our servers. I have searched for "tru64 set command" / "tru64 set man pages" / "tru64 'set -A'", but no luck.

What does the -A option mean in the set command ?

Example:

set -A lst 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

That's because it is a shell command, you have to look there first:

This creates an array "lst" and initializes it with 0 through Z.
