It works for a barcode reader with the same program we are talking about.
I scan something, it puts it on the screen and auto enters it. It must be
appending the 5250 data stream somehow. (It must send an extra code of
type when you configure the reader for auto enter because if not
the data waits for the enter key.) The reader acts like the keyboard, so
don't think the O/S or emulation software has anything to do with it. It

The Pocket PC is too small to use for the Packers as a telnet session.
All they will be used for is scanning. Sometimes they scan RFID and other
times they scan 2d or regular bar codes (even on the same Pack), thus the
need for a Pocket PC. If you can tell me where to get a keyboard scanner
that alternates between RFID, 2d, and regular barcodes, that would work
(and be a lot cheaper).
Example 3 is the way I'm doing it now.
Problem seems to be if I read from the dataq, the sfl doesn't seem to be
available. If I get the *DSPF in the dataq, I do a read and all is good.
If I can get a good chain to the subfile, I wouldn't have any issues.
