Among other things, the monitor performs system initialization at power-on and provides a user interface. .SS "Monitor Prompt" - .sp - .LP The monitor of earlier workstations was known as the \fBSunMON\fR monitor and displayed the \fB>\fR for its prompt. See the \fBSunMON MONITOR USAGE\fR section for further details. .sp .LP --- 25,39 ----

Refer to the book for a complete list of commands. .SS "Help" - .sp - .LP Help for various functional areas of the OpenBoot monitor can be obtained by typing \fBhelp\fR. The help listing provides a number of other key words which can then be used in the help command to provide further details. .SS "NVRAM Parameters" - .sp - .LP Each workstation contains one or more \fBNVRAM\fR devices which contains unique system ID information, as well as a set of user-configurable parameters. The \fBNVRAM\fR parameters allow the user a certain level of flexibility in configuring the system to act in a given manner under a specific set of circumstances. --- 60,77 ----

If the \fB\&'diag-switch?'\fR \fBNVRAM\fR parameter is set to true when the system is powered on, then a Power-On Self Test (POST) diagnostic is run, if present, sending its results messages to the system's serial port A. Not all of the commands shown are available on all workstations. --- 149,158 ----

With the exception of the \fBStop-A\fR command, these commands are issued by pressing and holding down the indicated keys on the keyboard immediately after the system has been powered on. The keys must be held down until the monitor has checked their --- 352,361 ----

Not all of these editing commands are available on all workstations. .sp .ne 2 .na --- 415,424 ----
*** 603,622 **** Insert the contents of the memory buffer into the line, in front (to the left) of the cursor. .RE .SS "nvramrc" - .sp - .LP The \fBnvramrc\fR is an area of the system's \fBNVRAM\fR where users may store Forth programs. The programs which are stored in the \fBnvramrc\fR are executed each time the system is reset, provided that the \fB\&'use-nvramrc?'\fR \fBNVRAM\fR parameter has been set to \fB\&'true'\fR. Refer to the book for information on how to edit and use the \fBnvramrc\fR. .SS "Restricted Monitor" - .sp - .LP The command \fB\&'old-mode'\fR is used to move OpenBoot into a restricted monitor mode, causing the \fB> \fR prompt to be displayed. Only three commands are allowed while in the restricted monitor; the \fB\&'go'\fR command (to resume a program which was interrupted with the \fBStop-A\fR command), the \fB\&'n'\fR command (to return to the normal OpenBoot monitor), and boot --- 582,597 ----

The restricted monitor may also become the default environment if the \fB\&'sunmon-compat?' \fR \fBNVRAM\fR parameter is set to true.
