RE: Command programming



fixed

I have more problems when I use a character field for truly numeric data - or the things that can be nothing other than digits. So I tend not to like this approach - besides the issue of non-digits can get in there so easily.

You could possibly define the parameter as 3 characters
and restrict it to a range of '000' thru '999'. Not sure
is this will work for your needs...

Subject: Command programming

Question 1: I am trying to find the IBM reference manual for command
programming on InfoCenter (V5R3). I didn't find the PDF for it, so I
searched for "choice program" see if that would point me to
it. The search
takes me to the "Qualifier Definition (QUAL)" page, but this
isn't what I'm
looking for, and I was hoping that I'd get a link that would
take me to the
table of contents for the manual but I am unable to navigate to it.
Frustrating!

Since I can't figure out Question 1:
Question 2: I want to define a parameter on a command as a
3-digit integer,
with a range of 001 - 999. If I define it as TYPE(*DEC), the
definition
allows non-integer decimals (i.e., 9.123, 147.9, etc.). I
tried the integer
types *INT2/4 & *UINT2/4, but those don't play nice with the
LENgth value of
3. I would like to avoid having to write a command
validation program.
Ideas?

TIA,
Dan
