Developer's Description

Convert a mainframe file to PC-based csv file.
This program converts a MVS Binary file to a CSV file based on its associated copybook. A binary file is a raw file in its original format. In IBM mainframe environment, files are often transferred to PC and then imported to PC softwares such as Microsoft excel or notepad for reports. Unfortunately the mainframe data is in EBCDIC format and its numeric data types such as COMP or COMP-1 or COMP-3 are not recognised by the ASCII-based PC software. Very often, programmer has to write program to convert them to text format before FTP them to PC, for example a data type of S9(5)V99 COMP-3 will have to be converted to a string of text like "+12345.99" which will be then mapped to ASCII characters by FTP software, one byte at a time; but a data type represented by a stream of bytes like COMP or COMP-1 or COMP-3 cannot be translated by FTP correctly. This program provides you an easy way to convert any mainframe file to a CSV (ASCII-based) file by simply FTP the data file in binary format and copybook to pc and then run this application.
