I have a file with a packed field, need to generate reversals, so want the input to be the same as the output with the sign reveresed, i.e multiply by -1.

Say the record is 80 bytes and the packed field starts in column 3 for a lenth of 4 bytes, with a picture of pic s9(05)v99 comp-3.

What would be the sort card to do this.

Thanks

Use the following control cards.
Code:

//SYSIN    DD *
  OPTION COPY   
  INREC OVERLAY=(3:3,4,PD,MUL,-1,PD,LENGTH=4)
//*

Or, subtract from zero:

Code:
     OPTION COPY
                                             
   INREC OVERLAY=(3:+0,
                       SUB,
                         3,4,PD,
                       TO=PD,LENGTH=4))


Subtract is faster than multiply. One day, someone will have 100 fields to reverse on a 100m-record file and benefit from it :-)
