  • O Spec trouble

    I'm doing assignments of Programming in RPG IV by Jim Buck, version 4. (Free format C specs, fixed everything else). And I'm trying to do this with O specs. My trouble is at line 1. I can't do it. The dates on the UDATE just keeps supressing the Zeroes. And the page number. I did set it to ' 0 ' I'm expecting it to be a 01 for page one instead of a suppressed 1.

    Program code:
    PHP Code:
    OFilename++DF..N01N02N03Excnam++++B++A++Sb+Sa+.............................Comments++++++++++++
    OQPRINT    E            Headings       2  1                                                    
    O
    ..............N01N02N03Field+++++++++YB.End++PConstant/editword/DTformat++Comments++++++++++++
    O                       UDATE                8 '  /  /  '                                      
    O                                          119 'Page'                                          
    O                       PAGE               124 '  0 ' 

    Output:
    Code:
    *...+....1....+....2....+....3....+....4....+....5....+....6....+....7....+....8....+....9....+....0....+....1....+....2....+....3

    The suppression of zeros happens up to and including where the zero is placed in the edit code.
    Code:
    OFilename++DF..N01N02N03Excnam++++B++A++Sb+Sa+.............................Comments++++++++++++
    OQPRINT    E            Headings       2  1                                                    
    O..............N01N02N03Field+++++++++YB.End++PConstant/editword/DTformat++Comments++++++++++++
    O                       UDATE                8 '0  /  /  '                                      
    O                                          119 'Page'                                          
    O                       PAGE               124 ' 0  '

      Thanks! That makes a lot of sense

    O-specs?! There must be a reason for not using externally described printer files...but I can't think of what that might be.

    Did a project moons ago to convert all of our remaining O-spec programs to external print file - JCR command JCRPRTF was extremely handy for that effort.

    Cheers,

      Consider using an edit code
      Code:
      OQPRINT    E            Headings       2  1                                                    
      O..............N01N02N03Field+++++++++YB.End++PConstant/editword/DTformat++Comments++++++++++++
      O                       UDATE         Y      8

        No reason really. I'm just relearning everything I need to. Don't know when the time comes that I may need to support a project riddled with programs using I and O specs.
