How to get the actual value from a COMP variable?

Postby naveenkvetrivel » Mon Nov 28, 2011 3:06 pm

Hi,

Can someone please tell me how to get the actual value from a COMP variable in REXX? Can this be done using C2X built-in function? My requirement is, I need to read an input file which contains data in various format like COMP-3, COMP, ALPHANUMERIC. I need to change the actual values in the input file to someother values and then write it to an output file in the original format. I've read COMP-3 variable but don't know how to read a COMP variable and get the original value?

Thanks
Naveen

When I tell somebody to RTFM or STFW I usually have the page open in another tab/window of my browser,
so that I am sure that the information requested can be reached with a very small effort
