# Description

PH-STATUS facelift

# Previous Release Behavior

The PH-STATUS command's user interface was extremely limited.

# Current Release Behavior

* The output is now sorted: BY STATUS-ALPHA BY-DSND START-DATE BY-DSND START-TIME BY LINE

* The output can be restricted by specifying one or more valid status codes as options. For example, to display only Active tasks:

ph-status (a
1

* The command-line options are case insensitive

* A select-list can be passed to it

* A check is done to ensure that a task marked as Active is still active; if it isn't then the status is changed to X. This could happen if the port was logged off or the task was killed in an abnormal manner.

* Added help page which can be envoked with -h or -?

* The PH-HISTORY file is now created as a Dynamic File
