PostPosted: Thu Aug 06, 2009 5:02 pm    Post subject: STRING in cobol Reply with quote

hi, i have a req it says that,

Var1 to var 14 : each 6 character length. each one i will read from the array.

ex: Var1 = 'bala ', var2 = 'ji '

when i do, STRING VAR1 ',' VAR2 ','..........
i will get 'bala ,ji ' but i dont want that. i want 'bala,ji'. basically the spaces after the acharacter sholud be truncated and i could do this for 14 variables.

please suggest methe option.

You need to remove the spaces for the data in 14 variables.
You can do that using INSPECT COBOL verb.

Try that, if you dont get.. let me know.

NO my concern is different.

first time i am moving the var1 to temp.
var1 has ' bala' but the length is 60.
second time i am doing string of var2 and temp into temp.
third time i am doing string of var3 and temp into temp.
like this its going on for 14 times.
so every time temp will get somee value and the next var will get concat to it.

temp var length is 850.
first tim its working fine. but the second time temp itself has a pic clause of 850. so the string option is not working.The data inside the temp is 10 to 20 charaters only.

problem is when its doing the second loop it sld take only the content length only not the var length.

PostPosted: Thu Aug 06, 2009 6:34 pm    Post subject: COBOL - USING INSPECT FUNCTION REVERSE STRING verbs Reply with quote

Yes, in this situation INSPECT verb will work.

Use following code... following cobol code will find the the length of the actual chatacter before space.

Code:

   INSPECT FUNCTION REVERSE(VAR1)         
        TALLYING WS-CNT FOR LEADING SPACES
     
     COMPUTE WS-INSPECT-OFFSET-1 = 60 - WS-CNT
 
         ....
         ....
     STRING VAR1(1:WS-INSPECT-OFFSET-1) , VAR2(1:WS-INSPECT-OFFSET-2)....
   



I hope above solution will work out..
You need to repeat above solution for 14 variables , before using COBOL STRING verb.

WTF????
a simple string with each variable delimited by space is all that is necessary:


Code:

string var1 delimited by spaces
         var2 delimited by spaces
         ...
         var14 delimited by spaces
  into whatever
end-string.

Hi ..
When REVERSE FUNCTION used with INSPECT TALLYING its working fine..
But there is a compilation error when used with INSPECT REPLACING..

Is there any way to replace trailing spaces by zeroes using INSPECT?

WTF??? why the foolishness? (don't get your undies in a bundle!!!)

Quote:

Useless comment. What compiler error?
what is your statement?

the following compiles fine:
Code:

01  SOURCE-GROUP.
    05  WS-FIELD-01             PIC X(10) VALUE 'ABC'.
    05  WS-FIELD-02             PIC X(10) VALUE 'DEF'.

  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  - 10 Line(s) not Dis

    DISPLAY SOURCE-GROUP
    INSPECT SOURCE-GROUP REPLACING ALL SPACE BY ZERO.
    DISPLAY SOURCE-GROUP




here is the ouptut:
Code:

ABC       DEF
ABC0000000DEF0000000

Am talking about FUNCTIOBN REVERSE with INSPECT REPLACING ..
U r talking about INSPECT REPLACING
Code:
INSPECT FUNCTION REVERSE(WS-LOB-CLASS-CODE) REPLACING
LEADING SPACES BY ZEROES.

The compilation error:

"ALPHANUMERIC FUNCTION REVERSE" was specified as the subject of "INSPECT", but a "CONVERTING" or "REPLACING"
phrase was found. The statement was discarded.

Please mind your words... and read full question before REPLYING...

Chandana,

you also need to relax and think.

there is an interm data area presented to the INSPECT statement by FUNCTION reverse.
what would be a replacing phrase for an interm data area accomplish?

why are you FUNCTION REVERSing?

you started this thread wanting to eliminate trailing spaces, before stringing variable contents.
now you want to what, replace them with zeroes?

get your head out of your butt,
and describe exactly what it is that you want to do.
