Top Job Control Line


Since Windows likes to hide the command line, most command line options can be set on an optional new initial line of the .as file. If the first line of the .as file contains a qualifier other than !DOPATH, it is interpreted as setting command line options and arguments. The Title is taken as the next line. This is the top job control line.

The option string actually used by ASReml is the combination of what is on the command line and what is on the job control line, with options set in both places taking arguments from the command line. Arguments on the job control line are ignored if there are arguments on the command line.

If the first line of the command file contains a qualifier, it is assumed to be the job control line. Otherwise it is taken as the title line.
