Build menu list ([Clear list])


Clear list If specified, the command empties the current list and defines it to have a single hash variable column before executing


This command builds a list containing the name of each menu class in the current library. The list is built in the current list for which the columns must have been defined. The columns are

Column 1 (Character) Column 2 (Character)
Menu class name Description for menu (if one has been entered)

The Clear list option clears the current list and redefines it to include only the #S5 field. With this option, the command becomes reversible but you get column 1 only.
