/code snippet on

Code:
Address TSO "EXECIO * DISKR <ddname> (FINIS STEM rec."
do  i = 1 to rec.0
    if substr(rec.i,5,1) = <somechar> then do
        /* ... */
        /* ...   do some processing related to condition TRUE  */
        /* ... */
    end
    else do
        /* ... */
        /* ...   do some processing related to condition FALSE */
        /* ... */
    end

/code snippet off
