This document provides information about program members that are shared with (or called by) other tasks or applications. These ancillary program members are available as a separate package or as part of the SimoTime Enterprise package.


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 Batch Jobs, Linux

The following members are for the Linux Environment. The Batch Job Scripts use Bash Script Files.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Set the Base Environment

The following shows the snippet of code that is used at the start of a batch job. This snippet of code will access a configuration file (ENV4SYS1.cfg) and set the base system environment for batch job execution.

#!/bin/bash
   JOBNAME=jobname
   for textstring in $(cat ENV4SYS1.cfg);
   do
#      # * The following statement will replace all occurences
#      # * of USD_BASESYS1 with the value of the BASESYS1
#      # * environment variable.
       textstring=${textstring//USD_BASESYS1/$BASESYS1}
#      # * The following statement will replace all occurences
#      # * of USD_JOBNAME with the value of the JOBNAME
#      # * environment variable.
       textstring=${textstring/USD_JOBNAME/$JOBNAME}
       export $textstring
       rc=$?
       if [ $rc != 0 ]
       then
          simonote.sh "#  $textstring - Return Code is $rc"
          JOBSTATUS=$rc
       fi
   done

The following shows the content of the configuration file (ENV4SYS1.cfg) that is used to set the base environment. This member is used to provide a single point for managing the commonly used system environment variables.

BASESYS1=/home/larry/SIMOSY76
COB_LIBS=USD_BASESYS1/SIMOSAM1/DEVL/LOADLIB:USD_BASESYS1/SIMOLIBR

SIMONOTE=USD_BASESYS1/SIMOSAM1/DEVL/LOGS/JOBLOG_SIMONOTE_USD_JOBNAME.txt

When the configuration file is processed by a batch job script the "USD_" text string will be replaced by a the "$" symbol.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Display & Log Messages

The following (simonote.sh) is a Linux Bash script file that may be called from other scripts and expects a single parameter enclosed in double quotes. The double quotes will be removed. The text message will be displayed to the screen. Before writing to the log file a date and time stamp will be inserted in front of the message text.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Diagnostic Aids, Utilities & Routines

This section will focus on tips and techniques that are available when doing problem determination. Techniques for tracking program behavior and memory content will be discussed.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Explicit Call to CBL_DEBUGBREAK

Micro Focus provides an explicit call to enable the visual debugger. The call may be placed in a user program at the entry point into the program or at a preferred user location in the program. The call name is greater than eight characters (CBL_DEBUGBREAK). When using a mainframe dialect this will cause a compile error. This may be easily resolved by using a small program that is compiled with a Micro Focus dialect and issues a call to CBL_DEBUGBREAK.

Note:  The CBLBREAK.cbl program must be compiled with a Micro Focus dialect.

The following (CBLBREAK.cbl) is the source code for a load member that will do the call to CBL_DEBUGBREAK and may be called from a COBOL program that has been compiled with a mainframe dialect.

       IDENTIFICATION DIVISION.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Identify Embedded Hex in Source Code

Prior to the mid-1980's it was necessary to use an editor with hex capability to key in hexadecimal values. Once a source member contained hexadecimal values it had to be carefully monitored because many editors would only display a space since the hex value could not be displayed. In addition, the compiler listing would display spaces and the embedded hex characters were hidden from view. A programmer could make a change that had nothing to do with the hex values and inadvertently change the hex value to a space when the member was saved. The program would then fail in a completely unexpected manner and the resulting debugging effort could take a significant amount of time. In other words this was (and still is) an accident waiting to happen on the mainframe.

During the mid-1980's IBM introduced COBOL/2 and it provided COBOL programmers with a method for defining data fields containing hexadecimal values. Therefore, there is no excuse to continue the practice of using hexadecimal characters in COBOL source code.

Link to Internet   Link to Server   Explore How to Identify Hexadecimal Characters in program Source code using this utility program. This utility reads an EBCDIC-encoded, record sequential file and writes to an ASCII-encoded, Line Sequential file. The records with embedded hexadecimal characters are converted and copied followed by two comment lines that show the original hexedecimal values.

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 or need assistance with converting non-relational data structures simply give us a call at 415 883-6565 or check the web site at http://www.simotime.com
