Release : 11.1
Component : CA Easytrieve Plus Report Generator for UNIX
The easytrieve_aix_20210825.tar was created to add the FILEFILL parameter in a EZTOPTBL.
1.) backup the current easytrieve installation
2.) cd <easytrieve installation directory>
3.) tar -xf easytrieve_aix_20210825.tar
# it'll update the content of the bin directory (executables and libraries)
A new runtime option was added to the options table:
FILEFILL <S | Z>
It allows to set the fill character, that is used to initialized the file output buffer. The default is FILEFILL=S (since 2014), which sets the fill character to the space character (0x20). The FILEFILL=Z sets the fill character to zero (0x00), which matches the behaviour before 2014.
To update the EZTOPTBL: go to the directory where EZOPTBL is stored and run this command:
echo "FILEFILL Z" | etopload -b -l
