list_files

Lists all of the variables that reference files.

Prototype

	procedure list_files (
	)

Description

Lists all of the current variables containing references to files. These variables were created by the addfile function. If run at the command line, this procedure invokes a pager for scrolling through the list. The pager is either "more" or whatever the user's PAGER environment variable is set to.
