Re: writing large single record stream file



fixed

But if your program is tereaspace enabled, you allocate storage and you
write to the IFS though a pointer aren't you talking tereaspace being a
limit?

But as earlier poster mentioned. It doesn't really matter. You can write
one byte at a time or 10 million. You can write a single record in one
write or you can write it in a dozen writes. The IFS doesn't care. It is
just streams of bytes. The only reason it really matters and that is not
much is efficiency.

Subject: writing large single record stream file

What are the limits of writing a single stream record from RPGLE?
I need to write EDI unwrapped stream file, possible 10 to 100 meg (it's
a monthly file to a government agency). Am using program based on Scott
Klement's IFS samples, currently writing one record per segment, but have
not figured out how to append each segment to a single record, and what the
limits will be. File is much larger than a single field can hold. Looking
for a sample.
