Intend to use Panvalet as a storage device for dataset with a fixed LRECL of 1562. These records have trailing binary zeros, X'00', instead of trailing blanks beyond the valid data.
- Does Panvalet do any compression on members of type DATA?
- Does it strip out and restore trailing blanks?
- Is there anyway to have Panvalet compress out binary zero bytes and restore them?
Panvalet internal compression techniques remove all non-essential data fields such as blanks, sequence numbers, identification fields, and COBOL keywords.
- Yes, these compression techniques are applied to DATA type members.
- Yes, Panvalet will compress out trailing blanks (x'40') at the end of a data record.
- No, Panvalet does not compress out consecutive binary zeros (x'00') or consecutive characters.
