In a previous Q&A, I asked about an end of file character met before physical end of file (when I tried to use commands like CPYFRMPCD or CPYFRMIMPF). I am not sure that I gave you all the details. It is the x'1A' and I found out it is an optional end of file. I read about some solutions found for this translation from ASCII to EBCDIC, but none of them uses this commands (CPY). Is there a way to avoid this character? Probably not the...
fastest method, but you could copy the stream data with CPY DTAFMT(*BINARY) to a document and then use the CPYFRMPCD command.
