This section provides the information needed to navigate smoothly through a database using CA IDMS DMLO. In addition, the many features that CA IDMS DMLO offers are documented to assist you.
CA IDMS DMLO is an interactive CA IDMS productivity tool which allows ad hoc navigation, retrieval, and update of CA IDMS/DB. CA IDMS DMLO is a full-screen editor for database records that is as easy to use as a text editor. For database navigation, CA IDMS DMLO uses an interactive data manipulation language compatible with CA IDMS DMLC. CA IDMS DMLO accesses dictionary information to provide COBOL-like structured record displays with element values, and to allow updating the database with changed values. Because CA IDMS DMLO uses CA IDMS DMLC commands, it is an excellent learning tool for database navigation techniques. Commands are executed interactively, and results are immediately available.
CA IDMS DMLO also provides an extensive set of control commands which allow you to manage the online session. CA IDMS DMLO includes security and audit capabilities for protecting the database from unauthorized access.
