Not to mention consistency. If you write mutli-tasking programs aligning data on integral boundaries ensures consistency across multiple CPUs. This is called a sequential memory model. Other hardware, ...

PostForum: Application Programming   Posted: Fri Jun 05, 2009 4:43 am   Subject: Regarding __date__ __time__ and localtime in Z/OS
__DATE__ and __TIME__ are compiler generated timestamps. That's a terrible idea and you should abandon it right now. They're constants!

If this is to do with POSIX(ON) it's probably displaying GMT ...

Just out of curiosity I tried to send regular FB80 libraries via FTP to the receiving LPAR, and we often had corrupted members and even corrupted files. Therefore, a FTP transmission ending with a R ...

Is this thread a bit silly. If you transfer a data set via FTP and there was a failure FTP will return with a > 0 return code. Shouldn't you be checking the return code from FTP?

Not sure if this is what you wanted, but programmatically, if you're sitting on your TSO id and you want to be 'notified' when the job starts, try adding this step to the top of your job(s) :

And how do you transfer PO datasets via FTP? I would just use AMATERSE which unloads the dataset to a sequential file and transfer that. It's got CRC checking - no worries.

BTW, the dateTimeStrLen-1 seems odd. the maxsize of the strftime takes the null terminator into account. So it's safe to use sizeof buffer for that parameter.

I can think of no way in JCL to check if POSIX is on. JCL is a very basic scripting language.
