The system variable named RUNSTATE contains a value indicating
the status of the current partition. RUNSTATE is a one-digit
numeric variable containing 0, 1, or 2. RUNSTATE is maintained by
InternetBasic and used by the QMONITOR program. The value of RUNSTATE is
unique for each partition.
|| QMONITOR will not require a password upon being run
in the current partition. This follows any action
where the user runs a program and then returns to
the QMONITOR program.
|| The user pressed F3 to escape from a program (and
return to the QMONITOR program), or a TERMINATE
operation returned the partition to the QMONITOR
program. If QMONITOR contains a program-to-be-run
for the user, a password will be required;
otherwise, no password will be required.
|| The user will always have to enter a password. InternetBasic
assigns this value to RUNSTATE whenever the current
partition is cleared. Thus, any user signing on into
the current partition will be required to enter a
password at the security QMONITOR program.
