Specify default device name and directory in which files will be searched for and stored
SET DIRECTORY TO [<device name>] [<path-name>]
The SET DIRECTORY command allows you to specify the device name and directory where all files will be searched for and stored. The device name specification is optional and if present, is ignored on non OpenVMS platforms. By default, files are searched for and stored in the current directory. The SET DIRECTORY command without a <path name> returns you to the original device and directory.
