  • General format HintsAndTips
  • Put <PRE> around code sections to turn off wiki formatting for that section
  • Watch out for trailing "\" at the end of a line - even within a <PRE> block it appears to smush lines together

  • FileInfo - UniVerse utility to show information about a file using FILEINFO()
  • FileStatus - UniVerse utility to show information about a file using STATUS
  • Find.Inode - A utility to locate filename of inode, using Pick Basic.

  • GetFileInfo - A wrapper around the O/S fstat command, or a PerlVersionOfFstat. Returns information about a unix file in a convenient format.
  • GetKey - Acts like keycode() in QM - returns a single character for any key pressed.
  • GetLineStack - An input subroutine that allows editing with the arrow keys. Works with vt100 and wyse50.
  • GetNameList - PICK BASIC program to build list of names based on either EXACT or SOUNDEX principles. Uses '*' and '...' for first name likeness.
  • GetOsInfo - UD program to get the O/S information (date/time/size/privileges) for items in a DIR type file
  • Getptr - UniVerse version of GETPTR function in UniData
  • HeapSort - Two routines to create a heap then return items from the heap in sorted order

  • HMAC - Sample Unidata / Universe Basic code to produce an HMAC-MD5 hash
  • HollDump - Does a Hollerith (fixed column) style dump from a UV file into &HOLD&
  • HollLoad - Reads a fixed-width file from &HOLD& into a UV file - and can handle multivalue fields.
  • InputWait - Duplicates in Universe the INPUT...WAITING functionality available in Unidata
  • IsoWeekNum - returns the ISO week number on being given an external format date
  • KLIST - Utility for listing records in files with formatted m/vs and s/vs + date conversion with selection/search
  • LFormat - A utility to print source code with line-up bars.
  • LineEDitor - A version of UniData's AE with embedded full page editor, change and search history/redo capability, and lots of other good stuff.
  • List.Path.Readu - Basic program to list.readu with pathnames instead.
  • LOOP-ON - Replacement on Universe for the R83 verb LOOP-ON
  • MAC_AE - Alternate Editor utility to convert Camelcase to PICK.VARIABLES
  • MakeDict - Program to allow command line dictionary creation - works for UniVerse and QM

  • QuickSort - uniVerse BASIC implementation of the quick sort algorithm
  • Resize.Stats - Checks all processes on system (HPUX 11.0 & Universe9.6) for resize activity and displays progress and estimated completions. Great for determining when phantoms are expected to finish.
  • ReturnSourceCode - Reads the GLOBAL.CATDIR opcode item on Universe, and extracts the source path off it's end
