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

The SIMOSTAT routine (or callable program) will do simple conversion of the two byte file status code and provide a four byte file status code that is suitable for display purposes.

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

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

           MOVE FILE-STATUS to FSPA-STATUS-CODE-02
           CALL 'SIMOSTAT'  using FILE-STATUS-PASS-AREA
           display FSPA-STATUS-CODE-04
           display FSPA-TEXT-MESSAGE

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

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Company Overview

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.
