Command Processor

Command processors are used to define command-driven navigation systems for Natural applications as an alternative to navigating through hierarchies of menus.

The Natural command processor (NCP) consists of two components: maintenance and runtime. The SYSNCP utility is the maintenance part which comprises all facilities used to define command processor sources and control the navigation within an application. The PROCESS COMMAND statement (see the Statements documentation) is the runtime part used to invoke Natural programs.
