Can I know how the sorting is done and wht will be the output. ie.
is it that the field to be sorted is starting from 14th position and
is upto the length of 3. Can u pls explain.
1) Syncsort is basically a high performance sort/merge/copy utility....rather a NON-IBM product, a competitor to IBM's DFSort.
2) The Sort Fields indicate, Ascending sort on the Composite key made up of 2 fields, 1st one a character field from 14---16, 2nd one a character field from 2---12. Once the sorting is over Outrec formats the record layout
Outrec format starting from the first :- 14---16 from i/p,2---12 from i/p,17---23 from i/p,24---32 from i/p, 7 binary zeros,33---35 from i/p,40 blanks.
