Hi,

Please advise, do we have equivalent code in SORT/ICETOOL as we do in cobol - INSPECT string CONVERTING substring1 TO substring1.

Example:
Input file has:
first&name
l&name

output file should be:
first name
l name


Thanks.

Is this a one-for-one replacement?
Only an "&" for a single blank?
Or are there other symbols you need replaced?

sudarsanreddyk,

You can use DFSORT's FINDREP function to do that kind of thing. For the example you gave, you would use a DFSORT job like this:

Code:

//S1    EXEC  PGM=SORT
//SYSOUT    DD  SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD *
first&name
l&name
/*
//SORTOUT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSIN    DD    *
  OPTION COPY
  INREC FINDREP=(IN=C'&',OUT=C' ')
/*


For complete details on DFFSORT's FINDREP function and the other functions available with PTF UK90013, see:
