Hello Peter,

Investigation shows that different DSM sessions are used for displaying
the output from *USER state programs and *SYSTEM state programs.

QZHBCGI (or QTMHCGI if you are still using that but you shouldn't be
because IBM have been telling you not to use it since VRM430) is a *SYSTEM
state service program.

SHWSTDOUTC is by default a *USER state program.

Therefore SHWSTDOUTC displays the user domain output which is why it does
not display the output from QtmhWrStdout.

The solution is to patch SHWSTDOUTC and make it *SYSTEM state then it will
display the output you need.  Check the MI400-L archives, buy Leif's book,
or STFW for information on how to do this.

This situation means you need two versions of the SHWSTDOUTC program in
order to display normal STDOUT and QtmhWrStdout STDOUT.  I am looking for
the locations of these two separate spaces.  If I find anything I'll
probably post the information to the MI list.

The reason the first character of each line disappears is because you are
appending an ASCII CRLF (x'0d0a') after each line.  Notice that the first
line (containing the Content-Type tag) prints correctly?  EBCIDIC x'0a' is
an odd character that could be many things depending on the device and the
version of the EBCDIC table.

You should be appending an EBCDIC CRLF (x'0d25') to each line and if
sending the output to a browser then convert the whole line.  The required
changes to your Wrt() function are:

Change the CRLF constant:
d CRLF            s              2a   inz(x'0D25')

Move the following two lines:
c                   eval      %subst(Data:DataLen+1:2) = CRLF
c                   add       2             DataLen

after this line:
c                   eval      %subst(Data:1:DataLen) = WrtData

Now the data is written to the screen correctly.  Using a system state
version of SHWSTDOUTC will prove that.
