Well, I was looking into something, and this struck me. I had to verify my thoughts with someone else on this My co-worker agreed these looked wrong. The examples for the CAT operation in the RPG reference are wrong. Either that or I'm SO fried right now that I can't see it. Here are the examples: The following example shows leading blanks in factor 2. After | * the CAT, the RESULT contains 'MR.SMITH'. | * | C MOVE 'MR.' NAME 3 | C MOVE ' SMITH' FIRST 6 | C NAME CAT FIRST RESULT 9 | * | * The following example shows the use of CAT without factor 1. | * FLD2 is a 9 character string. Prior to the concatenation, it | * contains 'ABC'; FLD1 contains 'XYZ | * After the concatenation, FLD2 contains 'ABCXYZ'. | * | C MOVEL(P) 'ABC' FLD2 9 | C MOVE 'XYZ' FLD1 3 | C CAT FLD1:2 FLD2 | | |___________________________________________________________________________ ______________| Figure 198. CAT Operation Shouldn't the first example be 'MR.^SMITH' and the second be 'ABC^^XYZ'? (^=space) The others are wrong as well. If I am correct and not out of my mind, then I can only come to the assumption that when translating the manuals to HTML, if they aren't using <PRE> then they forgot for each space to put in a character. That's besides the point, though. I am looking at this correctly, right? Hans, what's up with this? Bradley V.
