In Pl/1 while opening the file i might get various file errors. How to handle those errors
For Ex: In COBOL if i handle file status not equal to zero then we can identify there is an error occured while opening. How to identify the same in PL/1?


We have the same error for READ,WRITE,LOCATE(SET) also.How to handle?

using ON.

You have something like ON ERROR, ON CODE etc... you can use them for file handling

ponkala: ON is a PL/I construct. Read the Language Reference manual from the link at the top of the page and you'll find the ON units in PL/I refer in turn to an entire chapter on the different conditionals that can be intercepted -- ENDFILE, CONVERSION, KEY, SIZE being among them.
