Subject: RE: Replace character in a IFS file

Quick and easy solution with embedded SQL:

DCL-S FromIFSFile SQLTYPE(CLOB_File);
DCL-S ToIFSFile SQLTYPE(CLOB_File);
/--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
FromIFSFile_Name = '/home/YourDir/MyIFSFile.txt';
FromIFSFile_NL = %Len(%Trim(FromIFSFile_Name));
FromIFSFile_FO = SQFRD; //Read Only

ToIFSFile_Name = '/home/YourDir/MyIFSFile.txt';
ToIFSFile_NL = %Len(%Trim(ToIFSFile_Name));
ToIFSFile_FO = SQFOVR; //Replace
Exec SQL Set :ToIFSFile = Replace(:FromIFSFile, 'FromValue', 'ToWhatever');
//Handle SQLCODE

*InLR = *On;

Mit freundlichen Grüßen / Best regards
