Event Flag (EF) Internals?

» close window

The Question is:

how do you interpret the event flag field when using "show process/continuous"?
We can't find any documentation regarding the format for this field!

The Answer is :

  The value displayed by SHOW PROCESS/CONTINUOUS currently contains
  the PCB$L_EFCS and PCB$L_EFCU local event flag cluster longwords.
  The structure of the privileged-mode event flag wait mask (EFWM)
  and the other event flag data structures in the process control
  block (PCB) are not formally documented by OpenVMS -- that said,
  the Internals and Data Structures manual and the OpenVMS source
  listings CD-ROM set will be of interest.
