Need a simple way to embed a file in a Vision data file.
The byte-stream library routines (cbl_*_file) provide an easy way to embed files into a Vision data file.
Here are the basic steps:
1. cbl_open_file: Open the file.
2. cbl_read_file: Get the file information by using a special flag.
3. cbl_read_file: Read the file into working-storage.
That's it! Now simply write the data into the Vision file.
Attached is a sample program, imagetest.cbl, demonstrating how to embed an image file in a Vision file using this method. Extracting the file from the Vision file is equally simple and is also demonstrated in the sample program. Details of the various byte-stream routine parameters are noted in the source. You will also find those details in the documentation for those routines.imagetest.zip
