We code one Plist with the necessary header to identify the action and file,
then one large data field, long enough to hold the longest record.  We then
use external data structures to load the record to this field.  The
receiving pgm needs the same external data structures and moves the data
field to the appropriate DS.

Hope this helps

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.
