I'm not sure if this is the proper place because it's referring to FTP commands and not jcl. But I'll ask here anyway. I have a need to ftp a dataset to a server with a filename that's 150 bytes. Note I'm referring to the file name, not the path.

I can't find any documentation indicating that this is possible and I haven't been able to continue with + successfuly when the break is not as a space. Pointing this out because the normal advice of, "use cd', will not work since the long piece is the filename.

In other words, I want to do this.


What I've done is to put that in a dataset with a long enough lrecl and it works fine. But I'm curious if this can be done in the stanard 80 byte deck.

I don't think you can + in the middle of something.

I think your work-around was a very good shot. It'll perhaps give you up to 1024 characters or something close to that.

I suppose these are filenames which not to be typed...
