I converted COBOL source from an RS/6000 running MicroFocus to the AS/400.
I found it easiest to:

1) Create a CBLLE object
2) FTP or copy the source via NFS into the empty CBLLE object
3) Then compile (or attempt)

We found very few code changes required, and we "think" it took less time doing it this way than if we had written a COBOL conversion program.

Subject: [COBOL400-L] question on sortwork file for internal sort...


I am busy writing my source filter program for converting COBOL programs from the mainframe to ILE/COBOL. Some questions please....

1) Is it necessary to define a SELECT for the sortwork file for an internal COBOL SORT?

2) If #1 is yes, could someone provide an example of the SELECT and FD for the sortwork file?

3) If anyone out there is familiar with the differences between mainframe and iSeries concerning this, is there anything else I need to be aware of on this topic?
