I am using MF on UNIX SUN
I have as input a file that is compressed and sometimes has the 0D 0A Charecters in it
the input file is sequantial and I need to break the file to lines according to charecters I find in the line.
however when cobol reads the 0D 0A it handels it as end of lines and messes up my data.
I read regarding the EXTFH config file but I can not find it on my machine.
I really would appriciate help.

RE: line feed

I am not sure about MF cobol but if you define the file as sequential instead of line sequential, it should not interpret the 0D0A as end of line.

RE: line feed

the file has to be line sequantial


RE: line feed

No, you can still define it as sequential and discard the 0D0A or deal with it however you wish. A sequential file can contain control characters.
