Hi,

I have a requirement like this.

In a file with record length of 80 i wil be getting a URL ( eg. www.xxx.com ) and i dont know the position of it and this URL is preceded and succeded by some dots(..) or blank spaces.

Now i want to pick this and write it into output file using cobol pgm.

Could any one suggest how to do this.

Thanks
Karthik

Scan the variable using reference modification to find the www (assuming there is a www, of course)? URL names can be so variable that finding the end of it could be tough (.tv, .edu, .org, .com, country-specific endings such as .ca). Any chance you can get the application creating the file to put some kind of delimiter around the URL?
