MDD / MDD
The number of lines to be converted to data lines. If n is omitted or specified as zero, one line is converted. The n operand may also be specified as the / forward or \ backward modifier.
The MD line command converts a =NOTE> line into a normal data line. In addition, special lines that are displayed by the PROFILE command can also be converted into normal data lines. Such lines include =PROF>, =WORD>, =MARK>, =TABS>, =COLS> and =BNDS>.
On the Top of Data and Bottom of Data lines, MD is not allowed. On excluded lines, the lines remain excluded after they are converted. It is legal to use MD or MDD on a line or block in which some or all of the lines are already normal data lines. If this is done, the already-normal lines are simply ignored, and remain normal lines.
To convert one or more special or NOTE lines to normal data lines:
To convert a block of special or NOTE lines to normal data lines:
Here, a number of lines have the Make Data command MD placed on them:
Result: Notice that the lines that had MD line commands placed on them now have line numbers, because they are now regular data lines.
