HITALL

Function

HITALL is used to declare that all database entries are to be classed as hits.

Remarks

It can be useful if you wish to browse through a section of the database, either starting at the first entry or from a later point defined by BEGIN-AT-REFCODE.

It is also used in similarity searching where all database entries are to be compared against the target fragment.

Note that the command HITALL is not written to the journal file. Thus if you quit a search and want to start again you will need to re-specify HITALL.

Note also that HITALL causes any SCREEN instructions to be ignored.
