City of Lynn Valley

The procedures documented here are based on the conversion performed at the City of Lynn Valley in 2007. Examples of their JCL & datafilenames are used here with their permission.

VSEDATA vs MVSDATA vs DATAcnv1

In spring 2007, VSEDATA was completely rewritten based on the conversions at City of Lynn Valley.

VSEDATA will now be printed for MVS customers, since it is a much better writeup of data conversion, and since there is not much difference between MVS & VSE data conversions (unlike JCL conversions).

Note that you should use DATAcnv1.htm for your 1st few data file conversions, since the DATAcnv1 procedures are much simpler than VSEDATA procedures.

You will need the VSEDATA conversion procedures (or modified version of), for major conversion projects where you need the automation provided by the control files used in VSEDATA.

The VSEDATA procedures allow us to reconvert all data files with 1 command. You may need to retransfer & reconvert data files several times during a major conversion & certainly on the 'go live' week end.

1A1. Converting Mainframe DATA to unix/linux/windows

Profiles for Testing & Production

The profiles are split into 3 parts as shown below. This makes system administration much easier because the sysadm can change critical definitions in 1 place rather than have to change definitions in the home directory profiles of all programmers.

This system provides for TEST & PRODuction environments without the need to to change any filenames or any JCL/scripts when we move data files, JCL, & COBOL programs from test to production.

Environmental variable '$RUNDATA' will point to the test data superdir for programmers or the production data superdir for operators. Environmental variable '$RUNLIBS' will point to the test libraries (of JCL/scripts & COBOL programs) for programmers or the production libraries for operators.

Different programmers could also have different sets of test data simply by changing the defintiions of RUNDATA in their profiles.

stub_profile
  • copy to each user homedir & rename .profile or .bash_profile
common_profile
  • called by 'stub_profile'

You can see the complete profiles listed in part 1 of ADMjobs.htm. These profiles are provided with the Vancouver Utility pkg in the 'env' subdir. If installed as recommended they will be located at /home/uvadm/env/...

Note
  • to maintain the integrity of this system, you must:
  • NEVER code absolute pathnames in the JCL/scripts
  • NO filenames starting from 'root' (with a leading '/')

1A2. Converting Mainframe DATA to unix/linux/windows

Directories for Conversion & Testing

At City of Lynn Valley we have setup directories for conversion, test data, & libraries as follows:

 /tax/cnvdata   - superdir for data conversion subdirs
                - see subdirs listed on page '1B1'
 /tax/testdata  - superdir for testdata subdirs
                - see subdirs listed on page '1B1'
 /tax/testlibs  - superdir for test libraries (JCL,COBOL,etc)
                - see subdirs listed on page '1B2'

To make it easy to change directory locations, we will restrict any absolute references to /tax to 1 place, the stub_profiles define as follows:

export CNVDATA=/tax/cnvdata export TESTDATA=/tax/testdata export TESTLIBS=/tax/testlibs

aliases for easy navigation

To make it easy for the users to change from his login homedir to the the desired superdir, we have provided aliases, defined in the common_profile as follows:

alias cdc='cd $CNVDATA' alias cdd='cd $RUNDATA' alias cdl='cd $RUNLIBS'

$symbols used in documentation

To make this documentation more applicable despite future changes to your directory assignments, we will use the above symbols as much as possible. ($CNVDATA, $TESTDATA, $TESTLIBS - not /tax/cnvdata, /tax/testdata,/tax/testlibs)

1A3. Converting Mainframe DATA to unix/linux/windows

Filename Conversions

Here are some examples of filenames used on the mainframe & the filenames that will be used on the Linux system.

E2121653.MTAXE.PISCINES.CLUS.VSEPRD <-- filenames on MAINFRAME E2121656.ITAXE.FACTURAT.CLUS.VSEPRD E2122683.ITAXE.DEGREVEM.CLUS.VSEPRD E2123003.ITAXE.TRANSDAM TU.F01.E212-NO.TRPERM

 e2121653.mtaxe.piscines                <-- filenames on linux
 e2121656.itaxe.facturat
 e2122683.itaxe.degrevem
 e2123003.itaxe.transdam
 tu.f01.e212-no.trperm

Filenames on linux will be translated to lower case & suffixes such as 'CLUS.VSEPRD' will be dropped, since they do not apply to unix/linux.

TEST/PRODuction indicators such as PRD/DEV are not required because the Vancouver Utility conversions provide for TEST & PRODuction systems using environmental variables in the profiles of programmers & operators.

1A4. Converting Mainframe DATA to unix/linux/windows

Master & Work files

'Master files' are permanent files that must be present before JCL/scripts are run. 'Work files' are temporary inter-step or inter-job files that can be removed at the end of the job or end of a short cycle (daily, weekly).

We can distinguish between master & work files by running LISTCAT on the mainframe between cycles when we know there is a minimum of work files on disc. We will transfer the LISTCAT report to linux & convert it into a control file which will automatically cause datafiles to be assigned to the 'mstr' or 'wrk' subdir. For example here are a few files from a sample JCL/script.

    exportfile E212002 $MSTR/e2123002.itaxe.taxation
    exportfile E212504 $MSTR/e2125504.mtaxe.paracomp
    exportfile E212556 $WRK/e2125556.ttaxe.b8401j04
    exportfile E212557 $WRK/e2125557.ttaxe.b8401j04
    exportfile E212558 $WRK/e2125558.ttaxe.b8401j04

All converted JCL/scripts call a common function at the begining which sets up several environmental variables. You can see the 'jobset41' function listed on page 3C1 of the JCL conversion doc ('VSEJCL.doc#3C1'), but here are just a few relevant lines:

 function jobset41 {
 cd $RUNDATA                #change to working dir for production (or test)
                            # - depending on RUNDATA def in prgmr/oprtr profiles
 RLX=$RUNLIBS/cblx          #setup path for loading programs
 MSTR=mstr                  #master files
 WRK=wrk                    #interstep temp/work files or see $JTMP
 JTMP=jobtmp/${JOBID2}      #some temp files stored here
 RPTS=rpts/$(date +%y%m%d)  #subdir for today's printer files
 TAPE=tape/$(date +%y%m%d)  #subdir for today's tape files
 }

Having jobset41 change to $RUNDATA has several advantages:

  1. The JCL/scripts are independent of location. They need no changes to run in TEST or PRODuction locations.

  2. The filename definitions are shorter since they omit the front part of the path defined by $RUNDATA.

  3. You can run the JCL/scripts from anywhere. Unix/linux finds the JCL/script by searching the PATH defined in your profile (which uses $RUNLIBS to define the location of the JCL/scripts).

  4. Once the JCL/script is found, the jobset41 function changes to the data file superdir (which is defined by $RUNDATA in your profile).

1C1. Converting Mainframe DATA to unix/linux/windows

Re-Transfer, Re-Generate,& Re-Convert

If there are many updates to the mainframe during the conversion, you will need to periodically retransfer the datafiles & copybooks, regenerate the uvcopy jobs & reconvert the datafiles. (use script 'gencnv4A' to regenerate all uvcopy jobs)

Here is the 'dtree' for the CNVDATA superdir with comments on the right about which subdirs are retransferred, cleared, or remain the same for reconversion. See page '1B1' for content descriptions of these subdirs.

1D1. Converting Mainframe DATA to unix/linux/windows

Pre-Requisites for DATA file conversion

Setups & File Transfer from Mainframe


 #1 - Install Vancouver Utilities as per install.htm

 #2 - Setup user/logins for uvadm, appsadm, conversion team members

 #3 - Setup file systems & directories for conversion as per ADMjobs.htm
    - super directories $CNVDATA, $TESTDATA, $TESTLIBS
    - see all subdirs listed on page '1B1' & '1B2'

 #4 - Transfer data files to be converted to $CNVDATA/d0
    - assumed to be in variable length format
    - records prefixed with 2 byte binary record length (RDW format)
    - use option 'site rdw' on FTP from mainframe
    - convert from RDW when copying from $CNVDATA to $TESTDATA
    - applications may require fixed typ=RSF
      or typ=IDXf8 (variable length for Micro Focus COBOL)

 #5 - Generate LISTCAT reports on mainframe for transfer to unix
    - ideally when mainframe discs contain mostly master files
    - with very few temp/work files that do not need to be converted
    - transfer to unix $CNVDATA/ctl/listcat0

 #6 - Transfer mainframe COBOL copybooks to $CNVDATA/cpys
    - OR (better) copy from $TESTLIBS/cpys/* if already stored there
    - copybooks may need some conversion for compiling (see VSECOBOL.htm)
    - but would probably be OK as is for generating data convert jobs

Provision for manual changes to Auto-Generated jobs

Part 1 presents the operating instructions to both generate & execute the data conversion jobs. If you have no multiple record type files, you may not have to make any manual changes to the auto-generated jobs.

You may need to modify the auto-generated job data conversion uvcopy jobs if your site has data files with multiple record types. These manual changes will be discussed & illustrated with examples later in 'Part_3'.

1D2. Converting Mainframe DATA to unix/linux/windows

Data file conversion - Overview

 MF--->d0------>d0ebc------->d1ebc---------->d2asc----->d3asc----->$TESTDATA/mstr
 #1 FTP #2 copy  #3 var->fix #4 EBCDIC->ASCII  #5 fix->var #6 copy
        rename   uvdata41    uvdata42/uvdata44   uvdata45
        scripts   pfv2/...        pfx3/...      pfy2/...

 #1 - mainframe ---> $CNVDATA/d0
    - data records must be FTP'd in binary mode (else packed fields destroyed)
    - data records are variable length, prefixed with 2 byte binary recsize
    - use option 'site rdw' on FTP from mainframe

 #2 - d0 --------> d0ebc
    - files are copied to d0ebc
    - filenames are translated to lowercase (via renameL script)
    - unwanted suffixes dropped (via rename-X script)
      (.clus.vseprd, .clus.vsedev, etc)

 #3 - d0ebc -------> d1ebc
    - uvcopy jobs generated by uvdata41 guided by control file ctl/ctlfile4
    - variable length converted to fixed length to facilitate conversion
    - 2 byte binary record prefixes dropped
    - files without prefixes must be identified in ctl/ctlfile4 with 'typ=RSF'
    - record length set to next multiple of 64 at least 35 higher
    - recsize info string inserted at end of maxsize data (in 35 bytes)
    - recsize info string: <1=recsz<2=maxsz<3=fixsz<K=dsp(lth)

 #4 - d1ebc --------> d2asc
    - uvdata42 generates uvcopy jobs from copybooks into pfx1/...
    - character fields are translated from EBCDIC to ASCII
    - packed/binary fields are preserved (copied as is), since they
      are the same as on the mainframe (expected by Micro Focus COBOL)
    - uvdata44 inserts datafilenames (vs copybooknames) while copying to pfx2/...
      guided by control file ctl/ctlfile4
      (uvdata44 for variable length, uvdata46 for fixed length)
    - pfx2/* is copied to pfx3/... for editing required for multi record types

 #5 - d2asc --------> d3asc
    - uvcopy jobs generated from control file by uvdata45
    - to restore original record sizes saved in extra space at end records
    - uvdata45 generates into pfy1, copied to pfy2 for execution by uxcopy
    - keyed files are sorted to ensure keys in sequence for loading indexes
      (out of seq could be caused by differences in ASCII collating sequence)

 #6 - d3asc --------> $TESTDATA/mstr
    - files are copied over to $TESTDATA/mstr for testing

provision for files without 2 byte prefix

We assume as the default that all files from the mainframe will have the 2 byte binary record size prefix. Files that do not have the record prefixes must be identified in the control file (ctl/ctlfile4) by adding 'typ=RSF' to their entry. This allows us to have consistent record formats for data conversion.

1D3. Converting Mainframe DATA to unix/linux/windows

Generating data conversion jobs - Overview

There are 3 types of data conversion job generations which are summarized here before we give the detailed operating instructions.

1. Generating jobs to convert variable length to fixed length

   ctl/ctlfile4 --------------> pfv1 --------------> pfv2 ----------------->
                generate jobs         manual copy         execute from pfv2
                  uvdata41

To facilitate EBCDIC to ASCII conversions, mainframe variable length records will be converted to a fixed length format which can be converted back to the original record sizes after conversion by saving the original size in extra space at the end of each record.

2. Generating EBCDIC to ASCII jobs - Overview

 mainframe------>cpys--------->maps---------->pfx1---------->pfx2----------->pfx3
          #1 FTP     #2 cobmap1    #3 uvdata42    #4 uvdata44    #5 copy/edit

 #1 - Mainframe ---> $CNVDATA/cpys
    - FTP in text mode automatically translates to ASCII

 #2 - cpys ------> maps
    - cobmap1 utility converts copybooks to record layouts (cobmaps)

 #3 - maps ------> pfx1
    - uvdata42 utility converts cobmaps to uvcopy job skeletons
    - skeleton jobs are named same as copybooks
    - datafilenames fili1=... & filo1=... are same as copybooknames

 #4 - pfx1 ------> pfx2
    - uvdata44 utility is guided by control file (ctl/ctlfile3)
    - datafilenames & record characteristics: recsizes, key start(length)
    - uvcopy jobnames changed from copybooknames to datafilenames
    - datafilenames inserted on fili1=... & filo1=...
    - indexed file keys added on filo1=...,key1=dsplcmnt(length)

 #5 - pfx2 ------> pfx3
    - uvcopy jobs are copied to pfx3 before any modification & execution
    - modification required for multi record type files
    - insert record type test instructions & skip to auto generated instrns
    - never modify in pfx2 in case of regeneration & overwrite

3. Generating jobs to restore original record sizes

   ctl/ctlfile4 --------------> pfy1 --------------> pfy2 ----------------->
                generate jobs         manual copy         execute from pfy2
                  uvdata45

To facilitate EBCDIC to ASCII conversions, mainframe variable length records are converted to a fixed length format & now we need to convert back to the original record sizes. The original record size was saved in extra space added to each record by the jobs generated by uvdata41 & executed from pfv2.

1E1. Converting Mainframe DATA to unix/linux/windows

Preparation to generate data conversion jobs

Note
  • you must have completed the pre-requisites on page '1D1'
  • see subdirs required on page '1B1'
  • EBCDIC data FTP'd (binary) from mainframe to $CNVDATA/d0
  • LISTCAT report FTP'd (ascii) from mainframe to $CNVDATA/ctl
  • COBOL copybooks FTP'd (text/ASCII) from mainframe to $CNVDATA/cpys
Note
  • For your 1st conversion, you must follow these step by step procedures
  • For subsequent Re-Conversions, you can use the scripts provided:
  • see 'gencnv4A' on pages '1J1' - 1J3 to Re-Generate all conversion jobs
  • see 'uxcopyxx' on '1J4' to Re-Execute all jobs to Re-Convert all files

      - do not apply to unix, do not need test/production indicators
      - test/prod provided by differences in profiles for prgrmrs/oprtrs
        with no need to have different filenames (or JCL/scripts)

create statistics for variable length files (optional)


 #4. create statistics for variable length files in d0ebc (optional)
     - create table summary counts of different recsizes in each file
     - reads the files via the 2 byte binary recsize prefixes

 #4a. mkdir tmp1      <-- make subdir for output reports (1 for file)
      rm tmp1/*         - OR remove all files if tmp1 already exists

 #4b. uvcopyx varstat1 d0ebc tmp1 uop=q0i7,rop=r0
      ===========================================
      - create table summary counts for each recsize in each file

 #4c. uvlpd12 tmp1   <-- print all table summaries in tmp1 subdir

1E3. Converting Mainframe DATA to unix/linux/windows

Editing ctlfile with copybook names

ctlfile3 was created above with 'cpy=________' slots into which, you must edit the copybooknames corresponding to the datafilenames.

Before we edit the control file, we will copy/rename as ctlfile4, to protect our edited version, in case ctlfile41 is rerun (would overwrite ctlfile3).

If this is the 1st creation, you can simply copy ctlfile3 to ctlfile4, and then edit ctlfile4.

Note
  • Do NOT do #8 (cp) if you are re-creating ctlfile4
  • see #8a (alternative) on next page '1E4' to recover copybook names

 #8. cp ctl/ctlfile3 ctl/ctlfile4
     ============================
     - copy/rename control file before editing
     - protects edited file from overwrite if ctlfile41 rerun
     - see sample listing on page '8D1'

Editing control file with copybook names


 #9. vi ctl/ctlfile4      <-- edit data conversion control file
     ===============
     - insert copybook names into the slot provided by cpy=________
       for all files if 1st creation, only new files if recreation from LISTCAT
     - drop files that do not need to be converted
     - add any missing files
     - identify files without 2 byte recsize prefixes by adding 'typ=RSF'

1E4. Converting Mainframe DATA to unix/linux/windows

Alternative for re-creating ctlfile

For re-creations, we would not want to overwrite ctlfile4 & lose the copybooknames that we added (laboriously) on the initial creation.

We will 1st save the existing ctlfile4 as an indexed file (ctlfile4I), that we can lookup to get the copybooknames as we copy ctlfile3 to ctlfile4 using utility ctlfile43.


 #8a. uvcopy ctlfile42,fili1=ctl/ctlfile4,filo1=ctl/ctlfile4I
      =======================================================
      - convert existing ctlfile (w copybooknames) to an indexed file

 #8b. uvcopy ctlfile43,fili1=ctl/ctlfile3,filo2=ctl/ctlfile4,fili3=ctl/ctlfile4I
      ==========================================================================
      - copy ctlfile3 to ctlfile4 recovering copybooknames from ctlfile4I

edit control file with copybook names


 #9a. vi ctl/ctlfile4      <-- edit data conversion control file
      ===============
      - insert copybook names into the slot provided by cpy=________
        for all files if 1st creation, only new files if recreation from LISTCAT
      - drop files that do not need to be converted
      - add any missing files
      - identify files without 2 byte recsize prefixes by adding 'typ=RSF'

1F0. Converting Mainframe DATA to unix/linux/windows

generate All jobs to convert All DATA files

Note
  • you must have completed pre-requisites on pages '1D1' thru '1E3'
  • create library subdirs: cpys,maps,ctl,pfv1,pfv2,pfx1,pfx2,pfx3,pfy1,pfy2
  • create data subdirs: d0, d0ebc, d1ebc, d2asc, d3asc
    (see directories illustrated on page '1B1')
  • transfer DATA files, rename as desired (see page '1E1')
  • create/edit data control file ctl/ctlfile4 (see page '1E2' & '1E3')

We will generate 3 sets of uvcopy jobs to perform 3 major functions:


 #1. Generate jobs to convert variable to fixed length to simplify conversion.
     Generated into pfv1/..., copied to pfv2/... for execution

 #2. Generate jobs to convert EBCDIC to ASCII.
     Generated in pfx1, filenames added in pfx2, copied to pfv2/... for execution
     Manual changes will be required for files with multiple record types.

 #3. Generate jobs to convert fixed length back to variable length
     (using record sizes saved at the end of the fixed length records)
     Generated into pfy1/..., copied to pfy2/... for execution

 #1. ctl/ctlfile4 --------------> pfv1 --------------> pfv2 ----------------->

1F1. Converting Mainframe DATA to unix/linux/windows

generate jobs to convert variable length to fixed length

   ctl/ctlfile4 --------------> pfv1 --------------> pfv2 ----------------->
                generate jobs         manual copy         execute from pfv2
                  uvdata41       (in case edit, unlikely)

To facilitate EBCDIC to ASCII conversions, mainframe variable length records will be converted to a fixed length format which can be converted back to the original record sizes after conversion by saving the original size in extra space at the end of each record.

At City of Lynn Valley, the VSAM files from the mainframe were prefixed by a 2 byte binary record size field whether truly variable or not. The tape files did not have these prefixes and the control file entries for these were coded with typ=RSF so the uvdata41 utility could generate the correct job.

        (which need changes for multi record type files)
Note

  • to regenerate the pfv1/pfv2 uvcopy jobs (convert variable to fixed)
  • it is highly unlikely you ever need to customize the generated job
  • versus pfx1,2,3 (EBCDIC to ASCII) jobs which need record type coding

                generate jobs         manual copy         execute from pfy2

To facilitate EBCDIC to ASCII conversions, mainframe variable length records are converted to a fixed length format & now we need to convert back to the original record sizes. The original record size was saved in extra space added to each record by the jobs generated by uvdata41 & executed from pfv2.

'uvdata45' will generate jobs in pfy1/pfy2 that will use that extra space info to restore the records to the original size. uvdata45 is driven only by the control file (does not need the copybook info as did uvdata42).

It will generate 4 different job types depending on the file type

  1. variable length indexed (typ=IDXf8v with key)
  2. variable length sequential (also typ=IDXf8v but no key)
  3. fixed length indexed (typ=IDXf1 with key)
  4. fixed length sequential (typ=RSF or typ=RSR for DAM files)

1J1. Converting Mainframe DATA to unix/linux/windows

Scripts to Re-Generate All Conversion jobs

For the 1st time setup & generation of data conversion jobs, you must follow the step by step procedures documented on pages '1E1' thru '1F3'.

Scripts gencnv41 & gencnv4A are provided to quickly re-generate 1 or All jobs. Use these when changes are made to copybooks during the conversion phase.

 mainframe------>cpys--------->maps---------->pfx1---------->pfx2----------->pfx3
          #1 FTP     #2 cobmap1    #3 uvdata42    #4 uvdata44    #5 copy/edit
 <--- manual ---->|<----------------- automatic -------------->|<--- manual --->

Note that the automatic generation stops at pfx2, to avoid overwriting jobs in pfx3/... which may already have had considerable editing to add code for multiple record types.

You should use gencnv4A even if only a few copybooks have changed, because it is usually almost as fast to regenerate for All as for 1 & some multi- record type files may require instructions from multiple copybooks.

1J2. Converting Mainframe DATA to unix/linux/windows

Preparations to use gencnv4A/gencnv41

We assume you have already completed the 1st time Pre-Requisites on '1D1'.


 #1a. Login as appsadm or as yourself
 #1b. cdc ---> $CNVDATA      ('cdc' is an alias in common_profile)
  1. You could save all existing cnvdata, if you wish to compare new results to old results, or if you are not yet confident in these procedures.

 #2a. cd ..          <-- change above $CNVDATA
 #2b. cp -r cnvdata cnvdata.old  <-- save existing cnvdata (optional)
      =========================
 #2c. cdc            <-- change back into $CNVDATA
  1. Run the 'cnvdatainit' script to clear subdir/files that will be recreated See script listing on page '9B1'. See cnvdata subdirs listed on page '1C1' which indicates which subdirs are cleared, updated, or maintained as is.

 #3a. cnvdatainit   <-- clear subdir/files to be recreated
      ===========
  1. Add new or updated copybooks (from the mainframe) to $CNVDATA/cpys.

  2. Update the control file as shown on page '1E3'. If you are adding a lot of new files, & if the files are now present on the mainframe, you might recreate the LISTCAT report on the mainframe, & re-transfer to linux. You could then recreate ctlfile4 from LISTCAT as documented on page '1E2'. See sample listings of control files on pages '8A1' thru '8D1'.
Note
  • Alternatively if you are adding very few new files

Note
  • you must have added/updated jobs from pfx2 to pfx3 before proceeding.
  • inserting code for multi record type files (see examples in 'Part_2').

Please see procedures to 'Execute All jobs to convert All datafiles' on pages '1G1' & '1G2', but briefly & without much explanation:


 #1. uvcopyxx 'pfv2/*'  <-- execute all jobs to convert varlth to fixlth

add new/updated jobs from pfx2 to pfx3

Auto generations stop at pfx2, to avoid overwriting jobs in pfx3/... which may already have had considerable editing to add code for multiple record types.

We usually regenerate all jobs (up to pfx2), even if only a few copybooks have changed since the initial generation.

Now you need to edit/merge the newly generated instructions from pfx2, with the 'record type testing code' that you had previously developed in pfx3.

I suggest the following procedure. As an example I will use datafile 'tu.f01.e212-no.trperm' & copybook 'e221004b'.


 #3. cp -rf pfx3 pfx3.bak
     ====================
     - backup the entire pfx3 directory
     - many jobs may contain manually added instructions to test record types

 #4. cp pfx2/tu.f01.e212-no.trperm pfx3
     ==================================
     - copy regenerated job to pfx3, overwriting the old job
       (not a problem because we have saved it in pfx3.bak)

 #5. vi pfx3/tu.f01.e212-no.trperm
     =============================
     - edit the regenerated job (with new instructions for new copybook)
     --> position to the R/T test code area (usually line 13)
     --> :r pfx3.bak/tu.f01.e212-no.trperm  <-- read in the old job
     --> delete all but the R/T testing code
     --> :wq                                <-- write & quit

alternative extract of prior R/T code

You might find the following an easier alternative for editing the old record type testing code into the new job.


 #5a. cp pfx3.bak/tu.f01.e212-no.trperm tmp/tu.f01.RT
      ===============================================
      - copy the old job to tmp/... (might give it a short name since tmp)

 #5b. vi tmp/tu.f01.RT     <-- edit the copied job in tmp/...
      ================
      --> delete all lines except the 'record type test coding'
      --> :wq         <-- write & quit

 #5c. vi pfx3/tu.f01.e212-no.trperm
      =============================
      - edit the regenerated job (with new instructions for new copybook)
      --> position to the R/T test code area (usually line 13)
      --> :r pfx3/tu.f01.RT  <-- read in the record type test code (only)
      --> :wq                <-- write & quit

Illustrated uvcopy job generation - simple files

This section is intended to help you understand the generation & execution of uvcopy data conversion jobs. The operating instructions in Part_1 are concise and give no examples of the uvcopy jobs generated or the data converted.

Part_2 will present the illustrated version of the sample generation previously given on page '1H2', and also illustrate its execution.

Part_2 illustrates the generation & execution of a uvcopy job, that required no manual changes because the datafile did not have multiple record types.

See Part 2B ('2D1' - 2F5) for datafiles with multiple record types that do require insertion of record type test code to skip to the automatically generated instructions for redefined records.

See Part_3 for illustrated conversions of files with Variable length records and multiple (100+) record types.

2B1. Generating jobs to convert simple datafiles (illustrated)

Note
  • Part 2 generates 1 job at a time with illustrations
  • it is intended to help you understand the process
  • see Part_1 for the efficient generation of all jobs for all data files

Generating jobs to convert 1 datafile

We will illustrate the uvcopy job generation & execution using the following datafile & its corresponding copybook:


 e2121653.mtaxe.piscines  <-- datafilename used for this example
 =======================

 e212159b                 <-- copybookname corresponding to the datafile
 ========

Part_2 assumes you have completed the pre-requisites on pages '1D1' thru '1E3' Page '1E3' prepared the control file which relates the datafilenames to the corresponding copybooknames.

sample control file ctl/ctlfile4

 e2121653.mtaxe.piscines cpy=e212159b rca=00082 rcm=00082 rcf=00128 key=000(020)*
 e2121656.itaxe.facturat cpy=e212037b rca=00083 rcm=00245 rcf=00320 key=000(036)
 e2122683.itaxe.degrevem cpy=e212047b rca=00158 rcm=00265 rcf=00320 key=000(037)
 e2127546.mtaxe.donmarch cpy=e212142b rca=00100 rcm=00245 rcf=00320 key=000(020)
 tu.f01.e212-no.trperm   cpy=e221004b rca=00080 rcm=00080 rcf=00128 typ=RSF

The control file contains entries for all datafiles that need to be converted & the '*' indicates the file selected for our sample conversion.

You can see that this is a fixed length file, since rcs=82 & rcm=82, but most files are transferred from the mainframe in variable length format (2 byte prefix with record size in binary) even though all records are the same size.

  1. Records are in variable length format with 2 byte binary prefixes. Note 1st 2 bytes are x'0052' = 5*16+2 = 82 bytes (data length) + 2 byte prefix = 84 bytes. Don't be confused by the 'R'- just a coincidence that x'52' part of binary recsize is an ASCII 'R'.

  2. Although in variable length format, all records in this file are the same size (84 bytes total).

  3. uvhd options 'r84a' specify recsize & option 'a' to translate the character line to ASCII (zones & digits show the EBCDIC values).

  1. The variable length recsize prefixes have been dropped off. The x'0052' (on prior page) is gone & 1st 3 bytes are now '015' or x'F0F1F5' in EBCDIC.

  2. The pfv2 job converted the records to fixed size 128 bytes for the conversion process (will later be converted back to 82 bytes).

  3. A 'record info string' has been inserted to assist conversions. '<1=recsz<2=maxsz<3=fixsz<K=dsp(lth)'. '<1=' is the size of this record & could vary from record to record (but all 00082 in this file).

Part 2B Converting Mainframe DATA to unix/linux/windows

generating jobs to convert Multi-Record-Type files

Part 3 will illustrate the generation & execution of a uvcopy job to convert a datafile with multi-record-types. Part 2 has already illustrated the generation & execution for a single record type file, so we will omit steps that are the same as for Part 2.


2D1. Introduction & Overview

2E1. sample control file to guide uvcopy job generation

2E2. generate job to convert variable length to fixed length (for conversion)
- omitted since same as '2E2'

2E3. convert copybook to record layout 'cobmap' (from cpys/... to maps/...)

2E4. convert cobmap to uvcopy skeleton job (from maps/... to pfx1/...)
- skeleton jobs use copybookname for modulename & I/O datafilenames

2E5. extract instructions from uvcopy job (from pfx1/... to pfx1a/...)
- in case required by other uvcopy jobs
- omitted since same as '2E5'

2E6. insert datafilenames into skeleton jobs (vs copybook names)
- guided by control file relating datafilenames to copybooknames
- edit the job to insert record type testing instructions
  to skip to the auto generated packed field preserve instructions

2E7. listing of completed uvcopy job with datafilenames & record type tests

Executing jobs to convert multi record type file


2F1. Preparation to execute uvcopy conversion jobs
- copy/rename files

2F2. uvhd (hexdump) of sample EBCDIC datafile (in varlth format)
 2F3  convert variable length to fixed length (only for conversion phase)
      - omitted since this file was transferred from mainframe in Fixed format
      - vs Part 2A sample which was in variable format (with 2 byte prefixes)
      - even though all records were in fact the same size

2F4. convert from EBCDIC to ASCII, preserving packed fields
- uvhd (hexdump) of results

2F5. copy converted datafile to $TESTDATA/mstr (for testing & later production)
- converting fixlth back to varlth if required for COBOL programs
- uvhd (hexdump) of final results

2D1. Generating jobs to convert Multi-Record-Type files

Note
  • Part 2 generates 1 job at a time with illustrations
  • it is intended to help you understand the process
  • see Part_1 for the efficient generation of all jobs for all data files

Illustrated uvcopy job generation - Multi R/T files

This section is intended to help you understand the generation & execution of uvcopy data conversion jobs. The operating instructions in Part_1 are concise and give no examples of the uvcopy jobs generated or the data converted.

Part 2A illustrated the generation & execution of a uvcopy job, that required no manual changes because the datafile did not have multiple record types.

This Part 2B will illustrate generation & execution for datafiles with multiple record types that do require insertion of record type test code to skip to the automatically generated instructions for redefined records.

2E1. Generating jobs to convert Multi-Record-Type files

Generating job to convert a multi R/T datafile

We will illustrate the uvcopy job generation & execution using the following datafile & its corresponding copybook:

 tu.f01.e212-no.trperm  <-- datafilename used for this example
                          - contains 2 record types ('1' or '2' in 1st byte)
                          - with packed fields in different locations
 e221004b               <-- copybookname corresponding to the datafile

Part 2B assumes you have completed the pre-requisites on pages '1D1' thru '1E3' Page '1E3' prepared the control file which relates the datafilenames to the corresponding copybooknames.

Note that ctlfile4 contains entries for all datafiles to be converted & we have indicated our sample file with a '*' on the right side.

You can see that this is a fixed length file (since rca=80 & rcm=80). The 'typ=RSF' (Fixed) indicates that the format (for mainframe transfer) is also fixed, vs most other files which are transferred in variable length format even though the records are fixed length (as indicated by rca=rcm).

In future we may add illustrated samples for a true 'variable-length' datafile.

Notes re translation & packed field preservation

  1. The entire record is translated to ASCII by the 'tra' instrn on line 11

  2. The packed fields are preserved (same for Micro Focus as on the mainframe) by 'mvc'ing them from input to output to undo the prior translation.

  3. Note the 'mvc's reflect the different locations of the packed fields in the 2 different record types:
    typ004 mvc    b19(12),a19        <-- preserves packed fields for R/T '1'
    typ___ mvc    b47(6),a47         <-- preserves packed fields for R/T '2'
  1. Note that adjacent packed fields are combined to minimize the number of packed fields required. You can see from the copybook map on page '2E3' that R/T '1' had 2 packed fields at 19(7) & 26(5). Note that these are combined into 1 mvc instruction of 12 bytes.
    typ004 mvc    b19(12),a19        <-- preserves 2 adjacent packed fields
    typ004 mvc    b19(7),a19         <-- same as above (without combining)

 ============================================
 - print the file written by uvhd (collected output of all 'p'rint commands)

Notes

  1. We have printed 1 record of each type. Note that the 1st has a '1' (EBCDIC x'F1') in the byte 0 (column 1). The 2nd type has a '2' (EBCDIC x'F2') in byte 0.

  2. We used the uvhd search command --> s 0(1),'2' <-- to find the first record of R/T '2' - at record # 3636 within the file.

  3. Notice the 2 packed fields in R/T '1' at 19(7) & 26(5). Notice the 1 packed field in R/T '2' at 47(6).

  4. Relate the packed fields to the uvcopy job shown on pages '2E4' or '2E6'. The 2 packed fields are combined into 1 instruction:
    typ004 mvc    b19(12),a19             pn  mt-mes-cont:mt-taux
  1. Also note that this file is in Fixed length format & does not have the variable length 2 byte prefix (as did the sample file in Part 2A).

  1. As on '2F1' we have collected 1 sample record of each type, using the 's'earch command to find the first occurrence of R/T '2' at r# 3636.

  2. Note that the packed fields have been preserved at 19(12) for R/T '1' & 47(6) for R/T '2'. The packed field 'zones' & 'digits' are the same as in the EBCDIC file on page '2F1'.

Do not be misled by the character line which looks different because of the 'a' option used for the EBCDIC file has translated to ASCII so we can read the character line.

For example on page '2F1' the sign byte of the 2nd packed field in R/T 1 is x'3F' which shows as a '.' on the character line because x'3F' does not translate to a printable character in ASCII.

But the ASCII record on this page shows the x'3F' as a '?' (in ASCII). IE - the values in packed fields are preserved & it is just a coincidence when those values coincide with printable characters in ASCII.

2F5. Executing jobs to convert Multi-Record-Type files

Copying converted Data files to test directories

After data file conversion & before we can begin testing, we need to copy the converted data files from $CNVDATA/d2asc/... to $TESTDATA/mstr/... We have already made a script for each file & stored in $CNVDATA/sfload/...

These scripts will reformat/sort/load variable & indexed files as they copy records from $CNVDATA/d2asc/... to $TESTDATA/mstr/... Please see Part_4 for some samples of these uxcp/uxsort scripts.

3A1. Illustrated conversions - Variable length multi R/T files

Note
  • Part 3 generates 1 job at a time with illustrations
  • it is intended to help you understand the process
  • see Part_1 for the efficient generation of all jobs for all data files

Generating jobs to convert Variable length Multi R/T files

This section is intended to help you understand the generation & execution of uvcopy data conversion jobs. The operating instructions in Part_1 are concise and give no examples of the uvcopy jobs generated or the data converted.

Part_2 illustrated conversion job generation & execution for a simple file with fixed record lengths & only 1 record type in the file. No manual changes were required.

Part_2 also illustrated conversion job generation & execution for a file with 2 record types (still fixed record length). Some manual changes required to insert record type tests & branch to the banks of auto-generated instructions.

This Part_3 will illustrate conversion & execution for a very complex file with over 100 record types & with variable length records (IDXFORMAT8).

3B1. Generating jobs to convert Variable length Multi R/T files

Generating job to convert 1 datafile

We will illustrate the uvcopy job generation & execution using the following datafile & its corresponding copybook:


 e2121656.itaxe.facturat  <-- datafilename used for this example
 =======================

 e212037b                 <-- the 1st copybook used to describe this file
 ========                   - over 100 different R/T's & copybooks
 e212041b                   - will show only a few of the copybooks involved
 e212042b

Part_3 assumes you have completed the pre-requisites on pages '1D1' thru '1E3' Page '1E3' prepared the control file which relates the datafilenames to the corresponding copybooknames.

sample control file ctl/ctlfile4

 e2121653.mtaxe.piscines cpy=e212159b rca=00082 rcm=00082 rcf=00128 key=000(020)
 e2121656.itaxe.facturat cpy=e212037b rca=00083 rcm=00245 rcf=00320 key=000(036)*
 e2122683.itaxe.degrevem cpy=e212047b rca=00158 rcm=00265 rcf=00320 key=000(037)
 e2127546.mtaxe.donmarch cpy=e212142b rca=00100 rcm=00245 rcf=00320 key=000(020)
 tu.f01.e212-no.trperm   cpy=e221004b rca=00080 rcm=00080 rcf=00128 typ=RSF

The control file contains entries for all datafiles that need to be converted & the '*' indicates the file selected for our sample conversion.

You can see that this is a variable length file, since rca=83 & rcm=245, but most files are transferred from the mainframe in variable length format (2 byte prefix with record size in binary) whether fixed or variable.

3B2. Generating jobs to convert Variable length Multi R/T files

Generate job to convert FTP varlth data to fixlth data

The mainframe FTP program inserts a 2 byte binary record size prefix at the begining of each record. We will remove it for conversion, but save it at the end of the record, so we can later restore original record sizes.

3B7. Generating jobs to convert Variable length Multi R/T files

create table summary of R/T's in data to assist coding

Since we knew there were over 100 different record types in this file, we wrote a uvcopy job to create a table summary report, which will be a big help coding the record type test instructions. See the table summary job listed on page '5A1'. The table summary report is shown below.

  1. Records are in variable length format with 2 byte binary prefixes. Note 1st 2 bytes are x'0053' = 5*16+3 = 83 bytes (data length) + 2 byte prefix = 85 bytes. Don't be confused by the 'S' just a coincidence that x'53' part of binary recsize is an ASCII 'S'.

  2. uvhd options 'r256a' specify recsize & option 'a' to translate the character line to ASCII (zones & digits show the EBCDIC values).

  3. We use the default recsize 256 for variable length records, knowing that we will see several records or parts of records in each 256 byte block.

  4. Note that I have inserted '||' above the start of each variable length record (which is its record size in binary).

  5. I have inserted <--- begin rec#... above the begining of each record data. Note that the 1st 2 bytes are x'600C' (packed field with value 600+). This is 'system code' 600 & a 2nd system code in the file is 700.

  6. Each system code has about 45 record types found in a 2 byte packed field in bytes 32 & 33 (1st record type above is x'090C' (lined up above 34 & 35 due to the record size in the 1st 2 bytes).

     ===================================
     - execute 1 uvcopy jobs to convert 1 datafile from variable to fixed
     - copies the file from d0ebc/... to d1ebc/...
     - dropping the 2 byte binary prefix on varlth records
     - padding records with x'00's to a fixed length spcfd in the ctlfile
     - inserting recsize info string: <1=recsz<2=maxsz<3=fixsz<K=dsp(lth)
       in the space between record maxsz & fixsz spcfd in control file
Note
  • please see the uvhd hexdump of the output file on the next page --->

Notes re uvhd on next page

  1. The variable length recsize prefixes have been dropped off.

  2. The pfv2 job converted the records to fixed size 320 bytes for the conversion process.

  3. A 'record info string' has been inserted to assist conversions. '<1=recsz<2=maxsz<3=fixsz<K=dsp(lth)'. '<1=.....' is the size of each record & varies from record to record, as you can see in the uvhd on the next page --->

  4. After conversion the 'record info' is used to restore each record to its original size (see the pfy2/... uvcopy jobs shown further ahead).

3C5. Executing jobs to convert Variable length Multi R/T files

Executing job to convert EBCDIC to ASCII (preserving packed)


 #5. uvcopy pfx3/e2121656.itaxe.facturat
     ===================================
     - execute 1 uvcopy job to convert 1 datafile
     - copies the datafile from d1ebc/... to d2asc/...
     - translating char fields from EBCDIC to ASCII
     - preserving any packed/binary fields (same as on mainframe)
Note
  • please see the uvhd hexdump of the output file on the next page --->

Notes re uvhd on next page

  1. The pfx3 job has translated to ASCII (except packed fields).

  2. Note that I am showing records #1, #3,& #6 to illustrate different types.

  3. All 3 records shown are system 600, but the secondary record type (in bytes 32-33) varies - x'090C', x'099C', x'030C' for these 3.

  4. The 1st 2 records shown are very similar, but the 3rd record type is dramatically different.

  5. The records are now in ASCII, but the packed fields are the same, so the difference is not as great as for all character data. You can see that the 'info string' is in ASCII since '<1' is x'3C30' whereas it was '4CF1' in the previous uvhd of EBCDIC data.

3C7. Executing jobs to convert Variable length Multi R/T files

execute job to restore original varlth record size


 #6. uxcopy pfy2/e2121656.itaxe.facturat
     ===================================
     - execute 1 uxcopy job to restore original record sizes
Note
  • please see the uvhd hexdump of the output file on the next page --->

Notes re uvhd on next page

  1. Compare this to the uvhd d2asc/... shown on the previous page Note that we specify option 'v' to tell uvhd that the file is now IDXFORMAT8 (vs the fixed length 320 byte records used for conversion)

  2. We have dropped the 'info string' from the end of each record & restored the record sizes as specified by '<1=.....' at the end of each record.

  3. Note that IDXFORMAT8 files have several system control records interspersed among the data records, but we only show the 1st such record. The 1st record is 1024 bytes for Indexed files, but only 128 bytes for sequential.

  4. The system control record is identified by x'3_' in the zone of 1st byte. The remainder x'_3FE' is the record length = 1022 + 2 = 1024 total.

  5. Data records are identified by x'4_' in the zone of 1st byte. The remainder x'_053' (on 1st data record) is the record length x'0053' = 83 + 2 = 85 total.

  6. Note the record numbering is different due to the system record. The prior uvhd data records (1,3,6) are now (2,4,7).

  7. Note that the record sizes for the 3 data records x'0053'(83), x'0041'(65),& x'00EF'(243) are the same s previously shown in the original EBCDIC file shown on page '3C2'.

Part_4 Converting Mainframe DATA to unix/linux/windows

scripts to copy/sort/load data files of various types


4A1. copyRSF_tu.f01.e212-no.trperm
- sample script to copy data to typ=RSF (Record Sequential Fixed)
- typ=RSF are non-indexed & have no extensions
- typ=RSF allows files > 2 gig

4B1. sortIDXf1_e2121653.mtaxe.piscines
- sample script to copy data to typ=IDXf1 (Indexed Fixed length)
- typ=IDXf1 are Indexed & have 2 parts (.dat & .idx)
- typ=IDXf1 does NOT allow files > 2 gig

4C1. sortIDXf8_e2121656.itaxe.facturat
- sample script to copy data to typ=IDXF8 (Indexed Variable length)
- typ=IDXf8 are Indexed & but have only 1 part (.dat includes index)
- typ=IDXf8 allows files > 2 gig
- this script creates IDXf8v varlth format, BUT records all same size
  (need uvcopy job pfy2/... to restore original size from end of record)

4D1. uxcpIDXf8_facturat
- sample script to copy an IDXf8v file passing thru varlth record sizes
- copies from d3asc/... files already restored to original varlth size
  by uvcopy jobs in pfy2/...

These scripts are listed on the following pages & should provide you with examples/templates for creating scripts to copy/sort/modify other files as required.

Background re these sample scripts

These scripts are from the City of Lynn Valley conversion, May 2007 To facilitate data conversion, we converted all mainframe files to fixed length format, extending all records to carry conversion info at the end. After conversion we must restore files back to original fixed or variable.

We can easily restore 'fixed length' files back to original record size (& create indexed files) using 'uxcp/uxsort' scripts. But for the 'variable length' files we need the power of 'uxcopy' to use the saved record size from the end of the record to write out each record in its original size.

Note
  • As of May2007 we don't need these scripts to restore original record sizes
  • 'uvdata45' now generates uxcopy jobs to restore original record sizes
  • uxcopyxx 'pfy2/*' now executes all generated jobs to restore rec-sizes
  • see uvdata45 on page '1F3' & uxcopyxx 'pfy2/*' on page '1G2'
Note
  • these scripts no longer essential, but left here as examples
  • of using uxcp & uxsort to copy/sort/reformat variable length records

 #  - scripts stored in $CNVDATA/sfload, execute as follows:
 #
 #    sfload/copyRSF_tu.f01.e212-no.trperm
 #    ====================================
 # - create typ=RSF, non-indexed, no extension (vs index files)
 # - could use either 'uvcp' or 'uxcp' for typ=RSF files
 # - typ=RSF files have no extensions (vs IDXf1,3 which have .dat & .idx)
 # - this example simply reduces record size from 128 to 80

6A1. JCL/script conversion assisted by Datafile conversion

LISTCAT info improves JCL/script conversion

JCL/script conversion is separately documented in VSEJCL.htm, but we will summarize JCL/script conversion here, because it can be enhanced by using the LISTCAT info created here in the data conversions.

Page '1E2' shows how record-sizes & indexed file key locations are extracted from the mainframe LISTCAT report into a control file (ctl/listcat2), which has 1 line per datafile with file info coded as keywords (rca=... rcm=... key=...).

We will now show you how the LISTCAT info can be used to improve the JCL/script conversions. Please refer to the 'jcl2ksh4A' script listed on page '9D1'. 'jcl2ksh4A' is intended for fast & easy reconversions of all JCL. For the initial conversion, you should use the step by step method documented in VSEJCL.htm.

Note that step#3 in jcl2ksh4A is utility job 'jcldata41', which extracts all DLBLs/TLBLs from all JCL. These are sorted & duplicates dropped resulting in 1 line per unique datafilename found in all JCL. The output is written to $TESTLIBS/ctl/datafiles41.

If required you can create ctl/datafiles42 which is sorted with datafiles41 to create indexed file datafiles43I (looked up by the JCL converter).

The JCL converter looks 1st in ctl/listcat3I, 2nd in ctl/datafiles43I for matches on datafiles to get file characteristics (recsize, keys, etc).

To help you understand the process, the next page will show you a few lines of the 2 control files.

If you are not already familiar with the subdirs in $CNVDATA & $TESTLIBS, please review them on pages '1B1' & '1B2'.

The JCL converter uses the 2 Indexed files above to get file characteristics. 'listcat3I' has priority over 'datafiles43I'. The 'M' in 'typLM...' assigns these files to $MSTR/..., else to $WRK/..., but TLBL files to $TAPE/...

6C1. JCL/script conversion assisted by Datafile conversion

creating listcat3I from listcat2

Most of these procedures are automatic, but we provide you an opportunity to enhance the JCL conversion by manually updating the listcat2/3/3I control file to add datafiles that are missing from LISTCAT or to update file characteristics that you want to change for unix/linux.

You might only need to transfer & extract file info from LISTCAT once at the begining of the conversion, but you might update listcat3 & reload listcat3I several times to improve the conversion results.

We assume here that you have completed the procedures shown on page '1E2' to extract file info from LISTCAT. Those procedures may have already transferred listcat2 from $CNVDATA/ctl/... to $TESTLIBS/ctl/..., but we will repeat that step again in the instructions below.

6D1. JCL/script conversion assisted by Datafile conversion

update/load listcat3I & reconvert JCL/scripts


 #1a. Login as yourself or appsadm
 #1b. cdl ---> $TESTLIBS

 #2. cp $CNVDATA/ctl/listcat2 ctl
     ============================
     - copy LISTCAT info from data conversion superdir to JCL conversion dir

 #3. cp ctl/listcat2 ctl/listcat3
     ============================
     - copy/rename to protect future edits in listcat3
     - data convert procedures copy to listcat2, never to listcat3
     - only these JCL procedures will copy listcat2 to listcat3 & edit as reqd

 #4. vi ctl/listcat3
     ===============
     - update LISTCAT info as desired
     - add files missing when LISTCAT created on mainframe
     - modify/append keyword info on existing files as desired
Note
  • you probably would not update on the initial conversion
  • but you might update several times during conversion
  • then rerun jcl2ksh4A to get new file info into all JCL/scripts
  • updates get into jcl3/... not into jcls/... (already debugged)
  • but early in conversion most JCL/scripts still in jcl3/...
  • since we copy 1 at a time from jcl3/... to jcls/... when ready to debug

 #5. uvcopy loadcat3I,fili1=ctl/listcat3,filo1=ctl/listcat3I
     =======================================================
     - load LISTCAT info into Indexed file used by JCL converter

 #5a. uvcopy loadcat3I   <-- same but easier (files default as shown above)
      ================

 #6. jcl2ksh4A jcl2 jcl3
     ===================
     - convert all JCL from jcl0/... thru several steps to scripts in jcl3/...
     - looks up listcat3I (1st) & datafiles43I (2nd) to get file recsize, etc

 #7. cp jcl3/??? jcls
     ================
     - you will copy JCL/scripts 1 at a time to jcls/... (in the PATH)
       just before you are ready to test/debug each script
     - this allows us to reconvert anytime to jcl3/... to improve conversions
       after updating listcat3 & reloading listcat3I (as shown above)

7A1. Testing & Debugging Aids

'vi' tutorial

'vi' 2 modes of operation - COMMAND or INSERT

  1. COMMAND mode - cursor movement, read/write files, etc

  2. INSERT mode - enter text (insert or replace) - ESCAPE to return to command mode

It is most important to understand that vi has TWO modes of operation. Switch to INSERT mode using commands such as the following:

i=insert, a=append, R=replace, o=open new line, cw=change word.

Switch back to command mode using 'ESCAPE'. Make it a habit to hit ESCAPE as soon as you finish text entry. If in doubt (COMMAND or INSERT mode) - hit ESCAPE, it will do no harm if already in command mode (will beep).

7B1. Tips for users new to Unix/Linux

tip#1 - stay in your 'working directory'

Your working directory should contain only subdirectories, and all files should reside within sub-directories. In the following example, your working directory should be 'testlibs'

 /p1
 :-----testlibs         <-- working directory
 :     :-----cbl0         - COBOL source from mainframe
 :     :-----cbls         - COBOL converted for Micro Focus
 :     :-----cblx         - compile output (.int .idy .cbl .err)
 :     :-----cpys         - COBOL copybooks
 :     :-----jcl0         - JCL from mainframe
 :     :-----jcls         - JCL converted to Unix/Linux scripts

You should work 1 level above your files & address your files through a sub- directory. In the example above, you would edit your programs as follows:

 cd /p1/testlibs        <-- change to working directory
 cdl                    <-- alias 'cdl' changes to $RUNLIBS (defined in profile)

 vi cbls/apay100.cbl    <-- address program thru subdir
 ===================

advantages of working above subdirs

  1. Helps maintain a clean well organized workplace - Since all files are in subdirs, you can probably list all your subdirs on 1 screen, which reminds you of your subdir organization.

  2. Protects your files, even the infamous 'rm *' would do no harm at the working directory level, since all files are in subdirs.

  3. Garbage files (accidentally created) are highlighted & can be easily removed or moved to their proper subdir. When you list your subdirs, any files (non-subdirs) will stick out like a sore thumb.

  4. Subdirs allow you to maintain the same filename for data & programs in the various stages of conversion, or archiving, etc.

  5. Many operations require addressing multiple files in multiple subdirs and it is then best to work 1 level above the subdirs. For example:

    mfcbl1 car100.cbl        <-- compile 1 COBOL program
    =================          - script assumes program is in subdir 'cbls'

    cnvMF41 cbl0/CAR100.cbl  <-- convert program from cbl0->cbl1->cbl2->cbls
    =======================    - script assumes cbl1,cbl2,cbls are below you

    jcl2ksh41 jcl0/JAR100.jcl  <-- convert JCL from jcl0->jcl1->jcl2->jcl3->jcls
    ========================= - script assumes jcl1,jcl2,jcl3,jcls are below you

7B1a. Tips for new users to Unix/Linux

example - editing & compiling programs

Normally you will only edit 1 program at a time because you will usually then compile the program & the compile script must run above the subdirs because it needs to reference source, copybooks,& compiled libraries.

It makes no sense to change into the subdir, edit 1 program,& then change back to compile the program. That would use 4 commands vs only 2 commands when you work above the subdirs.

working IN subdirs - WRONG


 #1. cd cbls                 <-- change into subdir
     =======

 #2. vi car100.cbl           <-- edit program (specify just filename)
     =============               (but overall less efficient)

 #3. cd ..                   <-- change back out (to compile program)
     =====

 #4. mfcbl1 car100.cbl       <-- compile program
     =================

working above subdirs - RIGHT


 #1. vi cbls/car100.cbl      <-- edit program (specify subdir/filename)
     ==================          (but overall more efficient)

 #2. mfcbl1 car100.cbl       <-- compile program
     =================

When you move onto the next program, your keystrokes are minimized by using your shell history & changing only the program name.


 #3. vi cbls/car200.cbl      <-- edit 2nd program
     ==================
 #4. mfcbl1 car200.cbl       <-- compile 2nd program
     =================

Exception to the Rule

When you have extensive editing to do on multiple files in the same subdir, of course you would change into the directory, do the edits,& change back.

7B2. Tips for new users to Unix/Linux

tip#2 - setup 'tmp' sub-dir in your working directory

I recommend setting up a 'tmp' subdirectory in your various working directories, and use it for any temporary files, rather than clutter up your working directory (keep your working directory clean, subdirs only).

examples of using 'tmp' subdir

  1. Use 'tmp' whenever you want to redirect output to a temporary file so that you can then use the editor to explore the output. For example we might use 'grep' to find all programs using upsi as follows:

 #1a. grep 'UPSI' cbls/* >tmp/upsi    <-- extract lines with UPSI

 #1b. vi tmp/upsi                     <-- review results with editor

 #1c. uvlp12 tmp/upsi                 <-- print results
  1. Editing parts of programs & JCL/scripts into other programs/scripts For example, to copy a paragraph from 1 apay100.cbl to apay200.cbl:

 #2a. vi cbls/apay100.cbl       - edit program apay100.cbl
        ma                     - mark start of desired paragraph (mark 'a')
        mb                     - mark end of desired paragraph   (mark 'b')
        :'a,'b w tmp/chkdigit  - write paragraph out to tmp subdir
                                 (from mark 'a' to mark 'b')
        :q                     - quit edit apay100

 #2b. vi cbls/apay200.cbl       - edit program apay200.cbl
        --                     - move to desired point
        :r tmp/chkdigit        - read paragraph into apay200.cbl
        :wq                    - write/quit apay200

Don't confuse our 'tmp' subdir with /tmp which is a system wide directory.

 /tmp                      - system temporary directory
 /home/joe/tmp             - Joe's temporary directory
 /p1/testlibs/tmp          - temp subdir for apay libraries

You would clean out your 'tmp' subdir at least once a day, or you could setup a 'crontab' to do this automatically.

If multiple programmers working in shared directory (such as /home/testlibs) & desire their own tmp subdir, I suggest they append their initials (tmpaa, tmpbb, etc). Cron job can still clean out via 'rm tmp*/*'.

It is a good idea to append a digit (1,2,3,etc) on the end of filenames. For example: 'customer1', 'sales1', etc. This provides several long lasting advantages thru out the life of our applications:

  1. It makes our file & table names 'unique' & avoids confusion with other similar names.

  2. We can reliably use 'grep' & 'find' to search for all instances of a desired file/table name in all our directories.

  3. We can use 'vi' to '/' search for all instances of a desired file/table name when editing our scripts & programs.

  4. It makes it easy to create names for related files/tables. 'customer2' or 'sales2' might be a variant, save, or backup copy. Or we might use 'customer1a', 'sales1a', etc.

    Misspell filenames Intentionally

It is a good idea to intentionally misspell filenames for the same reasons as explained above (appending a digit (1,2,3) on the end of filenames). Misspelling also makes them unique & easy to find with vi,grep,find,etc. For example 'tmp' vs 'temp', 'wrk' vs 'work', etc.

common prefixes to identify related files

Common prefixes make it easy to find related files with 1 command. For example if I wanted to find all instances where my utilities are called in the scripts directory: ('uv' is common to uvcopy,uvsort,uvlist,uvqrpg,uvhd,etc).


 grep 'uv' scripts/*
 ===================

 grep 'uv' sf/*/*  (uvadm scripts are sf/adm/* sf/demo/* sf/util/* sf/IBM/*)

Recommended Aliases in profiles

Here are the 'alias' commands extracted from the recommended profiles which are listed begining on pages 3B0 thru 3B5 of VSEJCL.htm#3B0.

 # alias UNIX commands to prompt for overwrite (highly recommended)
 # - use \rm, \mv, \cp, when you have many files & know what you are doing
 # - '\' tells UNIX to ignore the alias & use native UNIX command
 alias rm='rm -i'              # confirm removes
 alias mv='mv -i'              # confirm renames
 alias cp='cp -i'              # confirm copy overwrites
 alias l='ls -l'               # saves a lot of keystrokes
 alias cdd='cd $RUNDATA'       # quick access to data dir
 alias cdl='cd $RUNLIBS'       # quick access to libs (same as cd)
 alias cdc='cd $CNVDATA'       # quick access to data conversion superdir

The 1st 3 (rm='rm -i',etc) are recommended for unix/linux beginners & experts since it is so easy to wipe out files unintentionally. When you do have multiple files to remove (using the '*' wildcard), you can disable the prompt by preceding the command with a backslash or using option '-f'.

cd aliases to RUNDATA, RUNLIBS,& CNVDATA

These are a great convenience for Your programmers & operators, because the recommended directory design has libraries & data in different filesystems & the paths can be long & awkward if you had to key them often.

If you need to see definitions of RUNDATA,RUNLIBS,CNVDATA, please see the profiles discussed on page '1A1' & the directories discussed on page '1B1'.

 export RUNLIBS=/p1/testlibs     #<-- defs in .profile or .bash_profile
 export RUNDATA=/p1/testdata
 export CNVDATA=/p1/cnvdata
         --- OR ---
 export RUNLIBS=/p2/prodlibs
 export RUNDATA=/p2/prodlibs
 export CNVDATA=/p2/cnvdata
 alias cdd='cd $RUNDATA'         #<-- defs in common_profile
 alias cdl='cd $RUNLIBS'
 alias cdc='cd $CNVDATA'

With the above aliases in your profile, you can switch between your libraries & data with 3 character commands:

 cdd     <-- change to your data files superdir
 cdl     <-- change to your library files superdir
 cdc     <-- change to your data conversion superdir

providing separate Datafiles for each programmer

Our profiles make it easy for you to setup a separate TESTDATA directory in your homedir. You can switch between sharing the common TESTDATA or using your own set in your home dir, simply by changing the definition of TESTDATA in your profile, and logging off & back on to make your changes effective.

See the profiles documented begining at ADMjobs.htm#1C0 We will assume that the stub_profile has already been copied to your homedir & renamed as .profile (for ksh/unix) or .bash_profile (for bash/linux).

You will need to study the profiles to fully understand this, but here are relevant lines from the stub_profile.

relevant lines from stub_profile

export RUNLIBS=/p1/testlibs export RUNDATA=/p1/testdata export CNVDATA=/p1/cnvdata # above are the stub_profile defs recommended for programmers # - operators would define RUNLIBS=/p2/prodlibs & PRODDATA=/p2/proddata # ## export TESTLIBS=$HOME/testlibs ## export TESTDATA=$HOME/testdata ## export CNVDATA=$HOME/cnvdata # above are the defs recommended for programmers who wish to have # their own set of Libraries & Data in their home directory

The '##' lines are normally commented out as shown when all programmers are sharing the LIBS & DATA directories.

You can uncomment just the '## export TESTDATA=$HOME/testdata' line & setup you own testdata superdir within your home dir as follows:


 #1. Login as yourself ---> your homedir

 #2. mkdir testdata    <-- setup a 'testdata' directory within your homedir
     ==============

 #3. cp -r $TESTDATA/* testdata
     ==========================
     - copy all subdirs from the common TESTDATA to your own testdata

 #4. vi .bash_profile     - edit your profile (.profile for ksh)
     ================
     --> uncomment the '## export TESTDATA=$HOME/testdata' line
  1. Logoff & back on to make your profile change effective

  2. Run your JCL/script tests as usual, all data I/O will be to the testdata directory within your homedir. The 'cdd' command will now take you there.

testdatainit - clear output subdirs before testing

You can use the 'testdatainit' script before running your JCL/script tests, to clear out any old outputs & enable you to more easily examine the outputs of your current test runs.

You can run testdatainit anytime, if you have changed your profile (as shown above) to redefine TESTDATA as a subdir in your homedir, or if you know that no other programmers are currently testing & do not need to retain any existing outputs.

You can see the 'testdatainit' script at /home/uvadm/sf/IBM/testdatainit. Here are the TESTDATA subdirs with a '0' beside the subdirs that are cleared by testdatainit.

joblog1 - capture logs via 'tee'

Console logging is highly recommended (especially for production) since it captures everything that happens on the screen, including operator commands & replies to prompts. See console logging in ADMjobs.htm.

But until you get console logging activated, you could use the joblog1 script (provided in /home/uvadm/sf/IBM/...). For example:


 #1. cdd                 <-- change to $TESTDATA superdir

 #2. joblog1 jar100.ksh  <-- use joblog1 to run script jar100.ksh
     ==================      & capture console log in joblog/jar100.log

 #3. uvlp12 joblog/jar100.log  <-- print the log
     ========================

The script capture the JCL/script screen displays into a file using the unix/linux 'tee' command. The log filename is created by dropping the '.ksh' extension from the jobname & then appending '.log'.

joblog1

 # joblog1 - run a JCL/script & capture a log file (via tee)
 #         - names the log file by dropping the .ksh & appending .log
 # - writes the logfile into subdir 'joblog' (creates it if not present)
 # - prompts for command to view/print (vi,cat,more,uvlp12,etc)

alldiff2 - diff report for all files in 2 dirs

The 'alldiff2' script will run the unix 'diff' utility on all pairs of files in 2 subdirs. The unix 'diff' command is a marvelous thing. It shows you the differences between any 2 text files.

I recommend you use 'alldiff2' whenever you make changes to the JCL converter or the control files.

First save the existing scripts as jcl3.old, remake jcl3, rerun the converter, & then run alldiff2 to verify that the changes made are the changes you intended & nothing else has gotten screwed up.

You can use the 'newold' script to change the name & make the new subdir.


 #1a. Login as yourself or appsadm
 #1b. cdl ---> $TESTLIBS
  1. Modify the control files to enhance conversions. See Part_6 for updating ctl/ctlfile3 & reloading ctl/ctlfile3I (used by the JCL converter). Or see ctl/jclunixop41 listed at VSEJCL.htm#3E1.

8P1. Conversion Control files for Data conversion & Micro Focus COBOL

Control files for Micro Focus COBOL


8Q1. Micro Focus COBOL Compile Options control file
- supplied at /home/uvadm/ctl/cobdirectives

8R1. File Handler Configuration file for Micro Focus COBOL
- supplied at /home/uvadm/ctl/extfh.cfg

You must compile the COBOL programs with these directives & file handler configurations to be compatible with the Data Conversions.

These files are supplied in /home/uvadm/ctl/..., and you must copy them to $RUNLIBS/ctl/... to be effective, since the profiles & compile scripts use $RUNLIBS/ctl/ in the path to these files

The 'extfh.cfg' file handler configuration is critical:

IDXNAMETYPE=2
  • specifies .dat & .idx extensions for indexed files
  • IDXFORMAT8 files have only 1 part (.dat)
  • but the .dat part does include the index as well as data
IDXFORMAT=8
  • specifies the default file format for variable length
    or indexed files

 #
 # export COBOPT=$RUNLIBS/ctl/cobdirectives
 # ========================================
 #
 -C VSC2(2)
 -C CASE
 -C FILESHARE
 -C IBMCOMP
 -C INDD(SYSIN)
