Re: how to copy dtaara text into a physical file



fixed

The QWCRDTAA API that I cited could be part of a UDF, of course - but why not call it directly in COBOL? That's the language in use where Joel works, certainly more than RPG.

Cheers

What about a UDF to grab the data area contents and return to the SQL?

No 3rd party stuff. All internal.

Performing an ETL function, dropping the output files on a network folder.

Need to drop a single sentinel file on another network folder telling a
network scheduler that the ETL files are ready to pick up.

I keep a data area showing the ETL start/end dates/times. I would like to
send that data area contents as the sentinel file.

I am planning on RTVDTAARA into a CL var, then SQL INSERT that into a table
to be dropped onto a network file via QNTC as the sentinel file.

Any better / simpler method?

Anything better than CL & SQL?
I know it helps me if I can have an understanding of the business problem.
Is there a 3rd party program putting a status in a data area and you want to
keep an audit log? What tooling is available to you?
CL, Cobol, Java, MI, PL/I, Python, QShell, Rexx, RPG? What drawbacks would
you like to avoid? Batch, interactive (is response time paramount)? Are
you in 'let's learn something cutting edge' mode, or more like 'let's just
bang this one out'?
