RE: AFPDS conversion to text



fixed

Unfortunately, the utility is restricted to QDLS, but since they give you the source code, it's always possible to fix that. It took me a couple of hours to replace QHFOPNSF, QHFWRTSF and QHFCLOSF API's with "open", "write" and "close" and it works perfectly fine.

It's too bad IBM did not drink its own kool-aid
regarding QDLS - but I kind of understand - I mean, the
plethora of PL/I examples - isn't that a favorite of
yours!! Even after it was no longer available.

This sounds like a nice replacement - of course, we have
our products that do this, too. (Not a sales pitch!!)

Vern,

Yeah, looks like it's an old utility that does
only use QDLS...

Scott recommended
(http://archive.midrange.com/midrange-l/200802/msg00472.html)

using Uzaemon's
SPL2STMF command (http://homepage1.nifty.com/uzaemon/)
as an IFS compatible
replacement.

I googled on HPTTOFLR - it appears to be part of
the additional materials
for the Printing V Redbook. There've been
several posts about it on these
lists.

I hope it is not restricted to sending stuff to
folders, instead of the
rest of the IFS - the name of the command gives
me pause.

I use IBM supplied command HPTTOFLR
(delivered "as is") and the above
defined WSCST object to create ASCII
files in QDLS.


I don't have a HPTTOFLR command on my
v5r4 machine.

Also, if you can use a file system besides
QDLS you definitely want to
do so.
QDLS performs poorly
and has many limitations that the other file
system do not have.
