dfconv.exe

Hi,

in Server 5.1I have dfconv.lbr

in Cobol Server 2.3.1 have dfconv.exe

the same command line that work on server 5.1

"run.exe dfconv d:\tmp\flsetl\mnt\gluster\pocs3\prod\sw\prod\xx\conb\scripts\utilities\conf\flsetl.PRO d:\tmp\flsetl\prod\dati\work\utilities\tmp\txt2dat\2016-06-27-17.10.32.473816485-14728\flsetl.SRT d:\tmp\flsetl\prod\dati\work\utilities\tmp\txt2dat\2016-06-27-17.10.32.473816485-14728\flsetl-CRE.dat"

write the output file :

d:\tmp\flsetl\prod\dati\work\utilities\tmp\txt2dat\2016-06-27-17.10.32.473816485-14728\flsetl-CRE.dat

d:\tmp\flsetl\prod\dati\work\utilities\tmp\txt2dat\2016-06-27-17.10.32.473816485-14728\flsetl-CRE.idx

don't work in Cobol Server 2.3.1

"dfconv.exe d:\tmp\flsetl\mnt\gluster\pocs3\prod\sw\prod\xx\conb\scripts\utilities\conf\flsetl.PRO d:\tmp\flsetl\prod\dati\work\utilities\tmp\txt2dat\2016-06-27-17.10.32.473816485-14728\flsetl.SRT d:\tmp\flsetl\prod\dati\work\utilities\tmp\txt2dat\2016-06-27-17.10.32.473816485-14728\flsetl-CRE.dat"

write the output file :

d:\tmp\flsetl\prod\dati\work\utilities\tmp\txt2dat\2016-06-27-17.10.32.4738

d:\tmp\flsetl\prod\dati\work\utilities\tmp\txt2dat\2016-06-27-17.10.32.idx

this limit why?


thanks

  • Hello mf_galberico:

    It should work the same, possibly depending on the contents of the file "flsetl.PRO".

    I recommend that you create a zip archive containing just the three files flsetl.PRO, flsetl.SRT, and flsetl-CRE.dat, then open a support incident to represent this problem through your account at supportline.microfocus.com, and attach the zip archive to the support incident.  Or attach each of the three files individually.  Then we could try the same experiment on machines at Micro Focus, comparing the behavior of dfconv between Server 5.1 with Server 2.3.1.

  • Hello mf_galberico:

    In the case of Server 5.1, the command to invoke was:

    run.exe dfconv

    Whereas under Server 2.3.1, the command to invoke is:

    dfconv.exe

    A person could invoke these commands while positioned in any folder or directory, since run.exe or dfconv.exe would be found on PATH, when using a command prompt with environment variables including PATH set for MF COBOL.

    The example dfconv command lines in this case specify absolute paths for the three files flsetl.PRO, flsetl.SRT, and flsetl-CRE.dat.  This means you could theoretically invoke these dfconv commands while you were positioned in any arbitrary folder or directory.

    In the case of Server 5.1, what was your current directory at the time you invoked the command?

    In the case of Server 2.3.1, what was your current directory at the time you invoked the command?

    Do you see different behavior depending on your current directory?
