Re: cpytostmf/cpytoimpf

Maybe the behavior of ENDLINFMT is about the display, not the contents. That option suppresses any end-of-line characters, so it is raw. Or maybe there is some weird kind of character translation.

I'm not sure about QNTC - maybe you'd need to copy it first to another part of IFS, then from there to QNTC?

ENDLINFMT did something weird. It sort of put two lines on one. Strange.

CPY worked though, but can you use it to copy to QNTC? It didn't work on my
system, but CPYTOIMPF/CPYTOSTMF does. This isn't a show stopper, it'd just
be nice.

Thanks,

Someone just mentioned this recently - a parameter on CPYTOSTMF can help
with this:

                End of line characters (ENDLINFMT) - Help
*FIXED
     The lines in the stream file are written as fixed length records.
     CR and LF characters are not added at the end of each line, trailing
     blanks are not removed from the end of each record.  The length of
     the stream file records equals the length of the database file
     records.

You might also look at the simple CPY command, which does raw copying, with

optional conversion.
