Hi,

I have developed 2 or 3 small small tool using REXX (which was just to try out this lang).. I have very limited knowledge on REXX.. but I got some work on REXX and one section of the assignment is to code a REXX pgm which can convert PS dataset to PDF file.

Truly speaking I am bit confused on how to start and if anyone can assist with the code (if any has already come across this kinda assignment) then I would be Greatful!!!!!

Requirement: REXX program to Convert Mainframe PS dataset into PDF

no need to reinvent the wheel...
google for txt2pdf, there are quite a few tools with that name written in rexx!
there are also a few topics discussing the issue on these forums.

Hi Enrico..

Thanks a lot! for the reply. A small query on that tool you have mentioned 'TXT2PDF'. As per the requirement I may need the REXX code so I can customized that as per assignment specification.. I guess if I use that tool I may not get the raw code to customized.. it would a tool which I may need to import to my mainframe system (may be with RECFM=FB and LRECL 80) and then directly use..

By any chance do you know where I can have the REXX code so I can customized the same as per assignment spec?

giving good advice to some people is like feeding pigs with caviar (*) icon_evil.gif

if instead of complaining You had googled as I told You
the things under Your eyebrows/eyelashes should have sent signals to the content of the box under Your hair

and the content thereof should have evinced that the txt2pdf I pointed You to are written in rexx and the source is available

(*)
from an english language perspective which is proper/better?
feed pigs with caviar ... or
feed caviar to pigs!

with all the sloppiness around trying to write in proper english is a way showing respect to people !

There is a difference between
  • giving good advice
  • doing their work


this was obviously a solicitation of 'do my work'
instead of 'point me in the correct direction'.
