|Subject: ||Re: print control characters on MVS|
About 15 years ago I made a simple, q&d text conversion program (in BASIC)
that converted any text file with only control characters 13+10 (CR+LF), 12
(FF) and 8 (BS for overprinting characters on multiple lines) into text with
each line preceded by an (extra) Carriage Control Character (position 1).
Those CCC's were:
space = just print the line from position 2
+ = start a new page and print from position 2
- = overprint the line from position 2
The very first 3 (or 4) lines of file were not printed, were suppressed as
a result of paper feed.
I could look it up at home, but I wonder whether you could use it.
Regards - Jim.
