Reply with quote

Hi,
I am trying to read a file which contains ID and passwords to be input to a JCL SYSIN created by the REXX. Now when I read the ID and password to a string, its converting the string to Uppercase automatically and the upper case letters are not valid. I know this is a property of REXX. Can you please let me know how can I read the string in REXX with changing the case ?

Eg : The file string contains "abcDefGH". When I read, it makes the string to "ABCDEFGH", but I need "abcCefGH". How can I do it ? Please help.

Thanks
Bidhu

You know?

Maybe you should spend a bit more time to RTFM!

"EXECIO * DISKR yourfile (STEM yourstem. FINIS"

Do i =1 to yourstem.0
Call Proces_Stem_Line yourstem.i
End

Proces_Stem_Line:
Arg line

Parse Arg line line /* this is to keep mixed case */
Return

Hi,

how are you reading it ? If you PARSE the record it will not change it to upper case.

I was using PULL before to process the line. Now when I added PARSE just before PULL, it worked. Thank you all for the help.

Thanks
