I know this is an old message, but I'm rather behind on my inbox.COBOL
Doesn't the INFDS contain the maximum record length ( I think the offset
into the area is 44 bytes)? I may have to duck for cover here, but the
OPEN FEEDBACK area has this. I thought the layout of the feedback area(file
information) was the same for any language, but I'm notcertain--especially
for SPECIAL files.
