rem  * Text   - Create various data files with 80-byte records.
rem  * Author - SimoTime Technologies
rem  * Date   - January 24, 1996
rem  *
rem  * This procedure uses the Microsoft "ECHO" command to pipe instream
rem  * data to an ASCII/Text file. The following terms are used.
rem  *
rem  * LSEQ - a Line Sequential File or ASCII/Text File
rem  * RSEQ - a Record Sequential File. This example uses a file of
rem  *        80-byte records that may be ASCII or EBCDIC encoded.
rem  * KSDS - a VSAM Key-Sequenced-Data-Set.
rem  *
rem  * 1. Delete previously created data file.
rem  * 2. Use the Windows "ECHO" function to Create an LSEQ file to be
rem  *    used as input to create additional files or data structures.
rem  * 3. Read the LSEQ file and write an RSEQ, ASCII File.
rem  * 4. Read the RSEQ, ASCII file and write a KSDS, ASCII File.
rem  * 5. Use "ECHO" to define keys to Hex-dump.
rem  * 6. Save the key-list to an RSEQ File.
rem  * 7. Do the Hex-Dump of the requested records.
rem  * 8. Convert Hex-dump (RSEQ) to ASCII/Text (LSEQ).
rem  *

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
