Syntax:

EDIT SYMBOL NAMES: REPLACE <string> BY <string>

Function:

The specified change is made to the names of all user-defined symbols - i.e. to the names of all variables, sub-programs and other objects. The names generated are required to be unique. If a name clash would occur, the names affected are not changed and a diagnostic is issued.

This command may be used, for example, to remove $ or : characters from names when migrating from VMS and Gould-SEL systems respectively.

Individual symbols may be renamed by the RENAME SYMBOL, RENAME SUB-PROGRAM and RENAME COMMON commands.
