CRLF for EXECIO to USS file?

Postby weaverbrosracing » Sat Aug 21, 2010 1:14 am

I'm writing to a USS file from a batch REXX job and would like a more readable format then I'm getting. When I write my records it comes out as one long record and I'd like 80 byte records. I tried LRECL on the ALLOCATE, but that didn't seem to work. Here's my code:

"ALLOCATE FI(WSPNSSBG) PATH('/usps/etc/test.group'),
PATHOPTS(ORDWR,OCREAT,OEXCL,OTRUNC) PATHMODE(SIRWXU),
PATHDISP(KEEP,KEEP) LRECL(80)"
"EXECIO * DISKW WSPNSSBG (STEM SMSSBgrp."
"EXECIO * DISKW WSPNSSBG (STEM EASECgrp."
"EXECIO * DISKW WSPNSSBG (STEM UPDATEgrp. FINIS"
"FREE FI(WSPNSSBG)"

Thanks, Steve

Unix files do not have an LRECL, which is part of the DCB that Unix files don't have.

Your best bet, if you want 80-byte records, is to create them in a z/OS file and then do an OPUT or OCOPY to transfer the z/OS file to Unix System Services.

That's what I did originally, but then I thought it would be nice to do it in one step. I guess I should be able to do an OPUT from my REXX code.
