38. Assign a function-key to the ‘FIND FIRST 8’, assuming it's PF10. Now in order to find paragraph OPEN-FILE-PARA, enter ‘OPEN’ on the command line and press PF10. The editor will position you at the beginning of the paragraph. The best thing about using it this way is that it immediately brings you to the desired paragraph, regardless of your current position within the program.

PS.: Assuming that "OPEN-FILE-PARA" is uniquely defined paragraph name and there is no other paragraph in the program that begins with the "OPEN".


Thanks,
Anuj
