Since RPG is out, have you thought of using two CL programs? One to generate the file and then the second to read it?

I have a CL which creates a file in QTEMP, populates it, then reads it in a loop. So far so good. Then it delays x seconds & repeats the process. This time, no processing occurs within the loop, because although the file is repopulated, the pointer is stuck at end-of-file at this stage. As you might guess, this was not the plan! I considered using OPNDBF with POSDBF. But from what I've read, RCVF won't share its ODP, so that's out. Do I have to resort to generating a new QTEMP file, suppressing level check, overriding to it & calling an RPG just to get the pgm to start again from the top every time I repopulate the file? I don't want to use RPG because most of the functions performed are CL functions, perfect for a CL pgm. Or should I delete & recreate the file each time - will that reposition it? All suggestions gratefully received, hope someone knows the theory better than I do : ) Thanks, Fiona __________________________________ Notice of Confidentiality This transmission contains information that may be confidential and that may also be privileged.
