[ ON | OFF ]



The desired COLS status


Abbreviations and Aliases

COLS can also be spelled as COL



If ON is specified, SPFLite will display a permanent COLS line at the top of the screen. This line will remain in place regardless of the file position being viewed.

If OFF is specified, then no COLS line will be displayed.

The value is stored as part of the PROFILE options which are maintained individually by file type.

The COLS primary command will display the column-position (=COLS>) line at the top of the screen, which looks like:

         =COLS> ----+----1----+----2----+----3----+----4----+----5

When there are TABS in effect, each tab column will be reflected in the COLS display as an underscore. Suppose you had Tabs set every 5 columns. When you displayed the COLS line, it would look like this:

         =COLS> ----+----1----+----2----+----3----+----4----+----5

Note that the COLS primary command was known as RULER in earlier versions of SPFLite. The current name conforms to ISPF conventions. The RULER command name is no longer supported.
