Re: AFPDS conversion to text



fixed

Thanks Pete for your offer. I liked the idea of uploading the whole save file as opposed to copying & pasting the source code.

Everyone - the link is here: http://www.opensource4i.com/downloads/20080701091653862/sfile.zip

I haven't had time to test this utility very thoroughly. I tested it on a few AFPDS spooled files and the command produced very satisfactory results. It might require some additional tweaking of the *WSCST object (source code included) to satisfy your requirements.

Have fun,
Goran

Goran,

If you wanted to, you could post it to
http://www.opensource4i.com. You
can either save everything to a save file, transfer it to
your PC and
zip it and upload it. Or you could post it as a
"snippet" at that site
(although 900 lines isn't really a
"snippet").

I host the site, FWIW, and it is available to anyone in the
i community
to use.

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


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.
