How do I force an EXECUTEd command to pause at the end of each page of output?

    The normal "LIST / SORT" commands work ok when EXECUTEd, pausing at the end of each page of content.

    If the VLIST command is EXECUTEd, it does not pause. Instead, the output from the command scrolls up the screen.

    Is there a way to force the executed command to pause at the end of each screen, or is this just a VLIST issue?

    One option is to use the PICK flavour of the EXECUTE command.
    In a PICK flavour account the EXECUTE command will pause, whilst the PIOPEN.EXECUTE and EXEC.EQ.PERF compiler options both result in no pausing.

    I know that "ASSIGN 1 TO SYSTEM(999)" will disable the use of the "Q" key at the "Press a key" prompt.
    I'm wondering if there a similar SYSTEM() value that can be assigned to enable/disable the pausing at the end of the page?
