Question on Parse/Build

Postby vespa » Thu Jan 14, 2010 11:39 am

I have a wrapped around file that I need to split into single record when X'0D0A' is encountered.
I'm using the Parse/Build command, however, after written out the 1st record, the output file is padding with spaces,
and it didn't split correctly. Did I leave some option out? I also tried the VLTRIM option to check for spaces and it didn't work.

Also, I need to translate the file into ASCII format, do I need a separate step to do this or I can
combine the conversion to ASCII in step 1?

Input: Wrapped around file, RECFM=FB, file length = 80, binary format
Output: Single record, RECFM=FB, record length = 80, ASCII format

Step 1: Split file into one record per line
Step 2: Convert record into ASCII format

Thanks.

Sorry, but it isn't clear to me what you're trying to do. Is the 1st output file data you show what you want or what you got?

Are you trying to do something like this where dl=X'0D04' delimiter (I didn't go all the way up to column 80 but hopefully you get the idea):

Input records:

AAAAAAAAAAAAdlBBBBBBBBBBBBBdlCdlDDDDD
DDDDDDdlEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEdlFdlGG
GGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG


Output records:

AAAAAAAAAAAAdlBBBBBBBBBBBBB
C
DDDDDDDDDDD
EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
F
GGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG
GG


If so, what exactly are the rules for breaking up the records?

If you're trying to do something else, please show a better example (in the same format as the one I showed) and explain the rules for breaking up the records.

Frank, sorry for the confusion. You're correct, I need to break the file when encountered CRLF, dl='ODOA'.
The output file that I'd provided was what I had when I ran the job, and it didn't break correctly.
I think the parameter should be pretty straight forward but what I have doesn't work.
Thanks.

PARSE only works on one line at a time - it doesn't wrap to the next line. I don't see a way to do what you want with built-in features of DFSORT. I'd suggest using a program or exit of your own with the logic you need.
