Each diagnostic has two results directories: [TFTR.di] and [TFTR.di.USER] . A search list of these directories is defined by the logical name di_ALL. The conventions for using these directories are:
By using the di_ALL search list or the RES$:[TFTR.di] directory specification you write files to RES$W, the results write cache. When you read, RES$R, the results read cache, is also searched. The read cache is write and delete protected; it only contains copies of files that exist on the optical system.
If a file is in RES$W, it has not been copied to the optical disks. You can delete a file from the write cache. If it is on RES$R, it can be superseded by writing a new version. Multiple versions of files on RES$W are purged before they are archived .
