## MAKELF

NAME

makelf - make an RMSfile

SYNOPSIS

makelf datafile records [deffile]

DESCRIPTION

This command creates an empty RMSfile with room enough for the specified number of records. When creating an RMSfile for the first time, use the createlf command instead.

If the deffile argument is present, it is used as the RMS definition file. If the deffile argument is omitted, the RMS definition file is assumed to be in $HOME\def directory and must have the same name as the RMSfile. This command creates both the dictionary and the RMSfile and overwrites any existing RMSfile or RMS dictionary without warning. FILES$HOME\def\datafile RMS definition file
