Re: CL file pointer techniques?



fixed

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

CL file pointer techniques?







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
