Before compiling and linking ADAM tasks we need to run the command ADAM_DEV which sets up appropriate definitions. This in turn requires that the command ADAMSTART has been run.
$ ADAMSTART $ ADAM_DEV
The task can then be compiled and linked using the following commands:
$ FOR MYTASK $ ALINK MYTASK
To run the task start up ICL and define a command to run the task using the ICL DEFINE command.
ICL> DEFINE TEST MYTASK ICL> TEST Loading MYTASK into 03BCMYTASK Hello ICL> TEST Hello ICL>The DEFINE command defines the command TEST to run the A-task MYTASK. For this to work, MYTASK has to be in the default directory. If it were somewhere else a directory specification could be included on MYTASK in the DEFINE command.
TEST then causes the task to be loaded and executed. Typing TEST again causes
it to be executed a second time, but this time it doesn't have to be loaded.
