Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Introduction

This program (CV80ALER.cbl) is one in a series of programs that will convert the file format and record content for files with records containing 80 byte logical records. These files are commonly referred to as card files or control files. This reference is based on an historical beginning that used 80 column cards and small decks of cards that contained control information. This information was used to determine the behavior of a utility program or user written program.

We have made a significant effort to ensure the documents and software technologies are correct and accurate. We reserve the right to make changes without notice at any time. The function delivered in this version is based upon the enhancement requests from a specific group of users. The intent is to provide changes as the need arises and in a timeframe that is dependent upon the availability of resources.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section CV80ALER, What It Does

This program will convert an ASCII-encoded, Line Sequential file of 80-byte logical records to an EBCDIC-encoded, Record Sequential file of 80-byte physical records.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section CV80ALER, How To Use

The CV80ALER program reads a Line Sequential File (GETLS080) and writes to a Record Sequential File (PUTRS080). Prior to executing the program the logical file names used in the program should be mapped to the actual physical file names,

Note: The file format is changed from Line Sequential to Record Sequential with trailing space characters. The logical record content is changed. The ASCII encoding of the input file is converted to EBCDIC encoding for the output file.

The following (ALER80E1.cmd) is a sample command file that uses two "SET" statements to map the file names and then runs the CV80ALER program.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Company Overview

SimoTime Technologies was founded in 1987 and is a privately owned company. We specialize in the creation and deployment of business applications using new or existing technologies and services. We have a team of individuals that understand the broad range of technologies being used in today's environments. Our customers include small businesses using Internet technologies to corporations using very large mainframe systems.

Quite often, to reach larger markets or provide a higher level of service to existing customers it requires the newer Internet technologies to work in a complementary manner with existing corporate mainframe systems. We specialize in preparing applications and the associated data that are currently residing on a single platform to be distributed across a variety of platforms.

Preparing the application programs will require the transfer of source members that will be compiled and deployed on the target platform. The data will need to be transferred between the systems and may need to be converted and validated at various stages within the process. SimoTime has the technology, services and experience to assist in the application and data management tasks involved with doing business in a multi-system environment.

Whether you want to use the Internet to expand into new market segments or as a delivery vehicle for existing business functions simply give us a call or check the web site at http://www.simotime.com
