H-12. APPEND SUBCOMMAND
This subcommand allows the operator to attach the text of one message to the end of another
message. The message that is to be lengthened must be called up by message number. The
APPEND subcommand is entered. The message number of the message to be added is entered.
The text of the second message is added to the end of the first message.
a. Both messages must be valid messages (identified by a message number in the system),
or error message No. 2 is printed, and the subcommand is terminated.
The APPEND subcommand does not change any message.
b. If a message to be added contains characters with parity errors, those characters are
changed to spaces as the added message is executed.
c. If the APPEND subcommand causes memory to become full, error message No. 3 is
printed, and the subcommand is not executed.
d. The keystroke sequence for the APPEND subcommand is " b0APPENDb2 XXXXb0CR".
e. The shortest acceptable form of the subcommand is AP.
f. Operator example: The operator wants to add message number 8 to message number 4.
Both messages contain unit movement instructions and have identical addresses.
Inputs b0EDlTb24b0 CR

and issues the EDIT prompt sequence.
