Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Introduction

This suite of sample programs performs Sequential File I/O and HEX-Dump formatting of an ASCII/Text File using Micro Focus COBOL. The programs describe how to dump the input records to an output file in Hexadecimal format. This suite of programs will run on a Mainframe System with ZOS or a Linux, UNIX or Windows System with Micro Focus Enterprise Developer/Server. The use of the EXTFHTAB.CFG file (EXTernal-File-Handler) is used to override the Micro Focus default that replaces TAB characters with SPACE characters.

The COBOL program is compiled with the ASSIGN(EXTERNAL) and the SEQUENTIAL(LINE) directives. The former provides for external file mapping of file names. The latter provides for the mapping of the SEQUENTIAL files specified in the COBOL program to LINE SEQUENTIAL (or ASCII/TEXT) files. This technique provides for the use of a single COBOL source program that will run on a Mainframe System with ZOS or a Linux, UNIX or Windows System with Micro Focus Enterprise Developer/Server.


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 Programming Objectives

This example illustrates the following functions.

1 Describe how to read a sequential file (or a Line Sequential file using Net Express).
2 Describe how to translate each character within a record to it's two-byte hexadecimal equivalent. Display the Hex information along with the ASCII and EBCDIC characters that can be displayed.
3 Describe how to display the hexadecimal values on the screen and write the hexadecimal values to a log file.
4 Provide an example of mainframe JCL to run the job on the mainframe to scan a Sequential file.
5 Provide an example of mainframe JCL to run the job on Windows using Micro Focus Mainframe Express (MFE) to scan a Line Sequential file as a Sequential file.
6 Provide an example of a Window's CMD file to run the job on Windows using Micro Focus Net Express to scan a Line Sequential file as a Sequential file.
7 Describe how to pass the TAB characters through to the COBOL application program when scanning a Line Sequential file.
8 Maintain a single set of COBOL source code that will run on OS/390 Windows and UNIX.

Overview of Text to Hex Dump Logic Flow

The main program (TXTHEXC1) will read a Sequential file (TEXT0512) and produce a 128-byte, fixed record length Sequential file (SYSHEXT1). The contents of this file will be the HEX-Dump information for the first 128 byte of each record in the TEXT0512 input file. The source code for the CMD file, the JCL member and the COBOL programs is provided and may be modified to fit your environment.

Color Associations: The  light-green  boxes are unique to the Mainframe and Micro Focus Enterprise Server/Studio (or Micro Focus Mainframe Express). The  light-red  boxes are unique to a Windows System and Micro Focus technologies. The  light-yellow  boxes are decision points or program transitions in the processing logic or program generations. The  light-blue  boxes identify the input/output data structures such as Documents, Spreadsheets, Data Files, VSAM Data Sets or Relational Tables. The  light-gray  boxes identify a system function or information item.

This suite of samples programs will run on the following platforms.

1 Executes on an IBM Mainframe running MVS or OS/390. The COBOL programs comply with ANSI/85 and run with COBOL/2, COBOL for MVS and COBOL for OS/390.
2 Executes on Windows/XP, Windows/7 or Windows Server using Micro Focus Studio or Server.
3 May be ported to run on the Linux or UNIX platforms supported by Micro Focus.

The following (TXTHEXJ1.jcl) is a sample of the mainframe, OS/390 JCL needed to run this job. This JCL will also run on a Windows platform using Micro Focus Mainframe Express (MFE).

This job may be executed on the mainframe as an MVS or OS/390 batch job. It may also be executed on the PC running Micro Focus Mainframe Express product. The JOB and DD statements will require modification prior to execution on a mainframe.

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
