CLEAR Restarts interactive TSP, without saving backup file COLLECT Collect a group of TSP commands to execute DO Loops over range of values or group statements DOT Loops over list of names, substituting current name for . (period) ELSE Part of IF/THEN/ELSE control block END Terminates TSP program or data section ENDDO Terminates a DO loop ENDDOT Terminates a DOT loop ENDPROC Terminates a PROC EXEC Executes (or re-execute) a range of lines EXIT Terminates current mode GOTO Transfers control to a new line IF Part of IF/THEN/ELSE control block LOCAL Marks variables as local to a PROC PROC Defines a user procedure QUIT Stops TSP STOP Stops TSP THEN Part of IF/THEN/ELSE conditional structure## Editing Commands and/or Data

ADD Adds a list of arguments to the previous command and re-executes it DROP Drops argument(s) from the previous command and re-executes it EDIT Simple command editor ENTER Interactive data input with prompting RETRY Edits previous command and reexecutes it UPDATE Replaces observations of a series## Display and Diagnostics
