SORT and COUNT using DFSORT/ICETOOL

Postby bitbybit » Thu Nov 08, 2012 7:14 am

My i/p has 2 fields that are in binary value.
fld1 is pic - x(1) at position 5
fld2 is pic x(2) at position 8

1. I need to sort the file by fld2 asc and then fld1 asc
2. I need to count the number of records in the i/p for each combination of fld2/fld1 and display that info (fld2 - fld1 - count)

the display of fld2 and fld1 shld be in decimal format.

for ex- fld1 vlaue is 1010011 , display - 83
fld2 value is 10100111010011 , display - 10707

Hi enrico-sorichetti, I posted both questions, But, they r not same. This one is a DFsort/ICEtool question about how I can sort by binary flds and mainly to count #of records for each fld1/fld2 combinations. The other one is how to convert binary to decimal in a Cobol program for display purposes, totally different questions.

Hi BiilyBoyo, I have tried some things with my limited knowledge of ICEtool, nothing wrked. So, first I converted the binary flds vlaues to char values, then sort the file by converted char values, then send it thru another cobol pgm that counts records for each combination of fld2/fld1, write the counts in sysout. It wrked and served my purpose, but I would like to know if there is an easier way to do that in dfsort/icetool.

did You try looking at he manual for the conversions supported by dfsort and relative format ...
even a googling for DSFORT SUPPORTED CONVERSIONS
returned the page of the manual with the "on the spot" example

INREC OVERLAY=(<ov_position>:<in_position<,<in_length>,BI,TO=ZD,LENGTH=<ov_length>)


for Your case ...
INRECINREC OVERLAY=(ZD_FIELD1_POS:5,1,BI,TO=ZD,LENGTH=4,ZD_FIELD2_POS:8,2,BI,TO=ZD,LENGTH=6)


and then process the zd_ stuff

TESTED

I was able to convert the binary to decimal using dfsort, but the 2nd bullet point is the main thing, How do I get a count of input records for each combination of Fld2/fld1? I didnt get any resoponse here, I eneded up writing a simple cobol pgm to get those counts and spit a report. 2nd part of my question is still un-answered.

You asked and then went "away" for five days. You didn't show anything you tried when you came back, and now...

Anyway, if you "extend" your record by adding a value of "one" to the end (if fixed-length) of the record, then SUM on that extended "one".

The "one" can be of the form C'01', C'001', C'0001' etc depending on how many records are the maximum you can ever expect on your file (I'd always go "10 times bigger").

After the SUM, in OUTREC for instance, use BUILD to get rid of the extension.

EG. If you record is 80-bytes fixed and you can expect up to 87000 records,

  INREC IFTHEN=(WHEN=INIT,OVERLAY=(81:C'000001')
  SORT (your sort keys)
  SUM (81,6,ZD)
  OUTREC BUILD=(your-first-key-converted,X,your-second-key-converted,X,81,6,ZD)


The Xs represent one blank, and are just for spacing the output in this example.

Well, fix them :-)

I've left a closing bracket off - easy to spot?

You even written a SUM like that? I did, but it needs FIELDS=

You don't need any of the FORMATs in the simple BUILD

  OUTREC BUILD=(34,4,X,51,4,X,75,6)


I provided a terrible mess for you, but if you are going to learn you should have been able to fix them all yourself. Look at stuff that works. Look at the manual. Note where the error pointer ($) is. It's not too difficult.
