This is related to my other post concerning print lines greater than 132... In the mainframe world, there is a COBOL compiler option (ADV/NOADV) which deals with the placement of printer control characters for print lines. If ADV is specified, the compiler adds one byte to the record length to account for the printer control character. ADV is only meaningful if you use WRITE...ADVANCING in the source code. If NOADV is in effect, the assumption is that the print line has already reserved a byte for the printer control character. I've searched through what I can find are the available compiler options for COBOL/ILE and I don't see anything comparable to ADV/NOADV. How is the printer control character handled on the iSeries? Is this something the average iSeries COBOL program needs to be concerned with?
