I'm a C newbie, and have a couple questions that I hope
someone can help me out with.  I want to read data from
a file and write it to another file.

I can open the files, read the input file, and write to
the output file.  The packed data I'm having trouble

The input file has one 32 pos field, and a string of
fixed-width data.  The output file has many character
fields, and a couple packed fields.  For the packed
fields (for now - I'll worry about converting the
character to packed later), I am doing this:

 record_OUT.DHUBNBR = (decimal(4,0))0D;

I am moving the characters to the output fields using
strcpy.  This is when the problem shows up.  The packed
fields wind up with blanks and all the character fields
beyond the first packed field are missing 1 character.

Going through debug everything looks good until this
step is done, and I look again at record_OUT.

Here's my mapinc statement for my output file:

#pragma mapinc("OUTFILE","*LIBL/OUTFILE(*all)","both","d
_P",," ")

Thanks for your help!,
