Issue/Introduction



When a Easytrieve program was ran with the Easytrieve/Linux environment, the following error messages appeared.
1 FILE PRT161 PRINTER V(161). FILE PRT162 PRINTER V(162)
2 FILE PRT163 PRINTER V(163). FILE PRT164 PRINTER V(164)
3 FILE PRT165 PRINTER V(165)

For the LINESIZE,  the values within the range of the record-length of the printer-file was specified.
Why the EZTC0435E errors appeared in the joblog?

Environment

Easytrieve Linux edition, Linux, Linux PC

Resolution

First, as the EZTC0435E message showed it, a printer record size should be greater than the LINESIZE value + 1. In a printer record, top 1 byte of a actual record data is considered to be the control byte like the ASA code. It is also based on the specifications from the Easytrieve/MF edition. And, in the Easytrieve program, top 4 bytes of a record of a variable file is considered to be RDW. It is based on the specifications from the Easytrieve/MF edition. (The specification is also applied to Easytrieve open editions.)
So, in this case, if the LINESIZE value is specified as 160, the actual maximum record data length must be 165 bytes. (160 + 1 + 4 = 165)
Therefore, in this case, the EZTC0435E error appeared because the record length of the variable printer file was shorter than 165.
