# Description

This command displays the current parameter of the active input buffer or specific parameters from the PIB. It takes the general form:

D{n}{+}
1

Where:

  • n specifies the number of the PIB parameter to be displayed. If n is set to 0 (zero), all parameters in the primary input buffer will be displayed.
    • inhibits a NEWLINE at the end of output.

# Note

D with no other qualifiers will display the current parameter of the active input buffer. The pointer position will not be changed.
