Convert RM/COBOL indexed file v2.1 (dual) into current version 12

Hi,

I am working with a customer that is running RM/COBOL 2.1 under Unix Ncr (for a very long time...) and wanting to move to Linux. Their Indexed files are dual, one file for the data and another for the index. I thing that with previous versions there were a utility to migrate those file but I can not find it.

How can I move those dual files into a new indexed file?

RE: Convert RM/COBOL indexed file v2.1 (dual) into current version 12

Hola Juan,

Creo que puedes hacerlo ejecutando "runcobol rmifca.cob".

Te pide el fichero a convertir ver. 1.x y lo convierte a ver. 2.0

Te pongo el rmifca.cob en este link: https://we.tl/t-7PHemL65FI

Si tienes problemas o no puedes hacelo enviame un fichero y sus indices de la version 1.x para que yo intente convertirlo.

Saludos.

Muchas gracias!

Funciona perfecto. Recuerdo que antes venía este conversor (en la versión 5 hasta la 7) pero obviamente por el paso del tiempo se ve que lo han quitado.

Saludos y gracias de nuevo,

Juan,

We used to provide an RM/COBOL-74 to 85 package on our old web site. This package contained the “RM74-85 Conversion” PDF document, along with, the COBOL source, and programs, detailed in the PDF document.

Below is a link to download that package:

amerftp.microfocus.com/.../RM74-85+Conversion.zip

**This link will only be active for 2 weeks.

Please let me know if you have any issues downloading these materials, or, if you have any questions.

Regards,

Me alegro mucho.

Si, es que estos nuevos chicos de Microfocus se creen que ya esta todo el mundo trabajando con lo que ellos dicen.

Y lamentablemente hay mucho desarrollo que está con programación hace muchos años.
