Bump a user
Note: Many $functions have been deprecated in favor of Object Oriented methods. There is currently no OO equivalent for the $Bump function as no User class is implemented.
The $Bump function allows a privileged user (system manager or system administrator) to bump another user just as the BUMP command does.
$Bump accepts one or two arguments and returns a numeric code.
%result = $Bump(user_num, [userid])
|%result||A numeric value (see Return codes) that indicates the success of the function.|
|user_num||The number of the user to be bumped.|
|userid||An optional user ID. If this argument is provided, the user indicated by user_num is bumped only if the user ID matches userid. This helps prevent accidentally bumping a user that just logged onto a thread previously occupied by another user.|
0 - User bumped 1 - User not found 2 - Not privileged to issue BUMP command
The behavior of $Bump is affected by the FUNCOPTS system parameter: If the FUNCOPTS X'01' bit is set, a caller of $Bump can bump any thread that has the same user ID as that of the caller, whether or not the caller is a system administrator or system manager.
The following program bumps user ID
HOMER that has user number 13:
B %RC = $Bump( 13, 'HOMER' ) END
