'gb and 'db routines

Just a thought.

I have a Rev 7 KCML5 system.

Would there be any interest in me writing a document covering the 'gb and 'db routines.

If so what level of document would be best.

Re: Documentation

I worked for Kerridge from 1981 to 1999.

Those manuals only ever existed on paper.

It was passed from generation to generation by osmosis and useage.

Re: REPGENs

the short and accurate answer is NO. If you do code in derived files remember that the RG opens all files apart from the first one in Read Only mode so you will have to clsoe and re-open it in the derived fields. EG - In derived If FIRST =FALSE:'gb_closefile(rg_handle(x),rg_handle(x)): ' gb_openfile...

Re: Conversion to Daemons

Yes it makes sense. I was toying with modifying the .profile to launch a program using "nohup" etc based on $LOGNAME but your method seems much simpler and more flexible. Presumably the program first launched will select @PART. The EOD process looks for these daemons via $PSTAT and leaves them alone...

Re: Conversion to Daemons

Thank you for your replies guys. I have an application process that runs after login etc , logging into a module and selecting a menu option. It picks up a lot of variable definitions and data along the way and once started the session is left running attatched to a terminal. More frequently than is...

Conversion to Daemons

We use what was a Rev7 Transport Management system (Autoline and Fleet Manangement) which has evolved over the years. Part of that evolution is a program that communicates with other systems. Currently this is a forground application but I would like to make it a background/daemon process. I have be...

Re: KCML6 and WDW

Well at least I am not the only one which is a relief.

And now the questions ......

Which versions of KCML6 and WDW do you use?

How long have you been running this combination?

I am keen to use ODBC with KLCML6 , do you have experience of that and if so how did you find it?

Regards

Re: KCML6 and WDW

I need to support files over 2GB which KCML 5 doesnot do. I am aware of the Kclient and WDW restrictions you mention. I know KCML6 is free , I just wanted to be safe and use KClient. What I am trying to find is some reason that will stop me being the only person on the planet supporting KCML6 and WDW

KCML6 and WDW

I proposed to upgrade thsi site from KCML 5.02 and WDW to KCML6 and KClient. Some bright spark has suggested that we go to KCML6 and stay with WDW to save the licence costs. ADP tell us that no one else in the world has this setup but that seems to be a of little importance to those interested in sa...
