Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Introduction

The SimoCASE routine does simple conversions of text strings between Upper and Lower Case. It also has some advanced functions to do capitalization of the first letter in a word and/or identify certain words to be exempt from the conversion process.

Function Description
0 Convert a text string to lower case.
1 Convert a text string to upper case.
2 Capitalize each word in a text string.
3 Edit specific words in a text string using pre-defined table values.
  A Summary of the Functions Provided by the SimoCASE Routine

This program provides the programmer with the ability to case conversion of alphabetic characters within a text string. For an example of a program that calls this routine refer to the Current Server or Internet Access section of this document.

This document provides a listing of the COBOL source code for the callable routine SIMOCASE Additional information about this program may be obtained by sending an e-mail to: helpdesk@simotime.com


We have made a significant effort to ensure the documents and software technologies are correct and accurate. We reserve the right to make changes without notice at any time. The function delivered in this version is based upon the enhancement requests from a specific group of users. The intent is to provide changes as the need arises and in a timeframe that is dependent upon the availability of resources.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section SimoCASE, What It Does

The SimoCASE routine (or callable program) will do simple conversion between upper and lower case plus capitalization and editing of specific words within a text string. Based on subsequent calls to SimoCASE with requests (CASE-PASS-REQUEST) of 0, 2 and 3 the following will be returned in the pass area.

Input Record ..... THE QUICK BROWN FOX JUMPED OVER THE LAZY DOG'S BACK
Convert Lower .... the quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog's back
Capitalization ... The Quick Brown Fox Jumped Over The Lazy Dog's Back
Edited Words ..... The Quick Brown Fox Jumped Over the Lazy Dog's Back

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section SimoCASE, How To Use

The following will convert the text string from upper case to lower case text..

           MOVE '0'    to CASE-PASS-REQUEST
           MOVE 'THE QUICK BROWN FOX ...' to CASE-PASS-BUFFER
           CALL 'SIMOCASE'  using CASE-PASS-AREA

A copy file is provided to define the pass area to be used when calling SimoCASE. The following statement is required in the WORKING STORAGE section of the calling program.

SimoTime Technologies was founded in 1987 and is a privately owned company. We specialize in the creation and deployment of business applications using new or existing technologies and services. We have a team of individuals that understand the broad range of technologies being used in today's environments. Our customers include small businesses using Internet technologies to corporations using very large mainframe systems.

Quite often, to reach larger markets or provide a higher level of service to existing customers it requires the newer Internet technologies to work in a complementary manner with existing corporate mainframe systems. We specialize in preparing applications and the associated data that are currently residing on a single platform to be distributed across a variety of platforms.

Preparing the application programs will require the transfer of source members that will be compiled and deployed on the target platform.

The data will need to be transferred between the systems and may need to be converted and validated at various stages within the process.

SimoTime has the technology, services and experience to assist in the application and data management tasks involved with doing business in a multi-system environment.

Whether you want to use the Internet to expand into new market segments or as a delivery vehicle for existing business functions simply give us a call at 1 415 827-7045 or send an e-mail to: helpdesk@simotime.com
