Externally defined data structures based on the file from which you read.
You will have to pass the data structure from the reading program to the
others that use the data, but it's one parm.

Subject: Reference record format from another pgm


Hi All
Is there a way ,(besides passing every field in a plist), that a pgm could
read a file and call another pgm which (perhaps through pointers) could
reference the data of the recently-read record format from the previous
pgm. I need to break down a program into managable pieces and do not want
to have to code plists for 9 files. I also don't want to define the files
in each respective module.
Any help appreciated.

Regards
John.
