RE: AFPDS conversion to text



fixed

Hi Michael,

No problem - I'd be happy to share this modified utility with the rest of the world. Since, I've never done something like that, what would be the most elegant way to do this? Copy & paste wouldn't work cause there is around 900 lines of code...

Goran -

That would be a great utility to be released to the community if you
were willing.

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.
