CMS Advanced Options Dialog Box

How do I get to this dialog box?
  1. Open a 3270 terminal session and then open the Transfer Settings dialog box.

    The steps depend on your user interface mode.

    User Interface Mode Steps
    Ribbon On the Session ribbon, from the Transfer group, click the Transfer Settings launcher:
    Reflection Browser On the Reflection menu, choose Tools and then File Transfer. In the Transfer dialog box, click the Settings button.
    TouchUx Tap the Wrench icon and then under Tools, select File Transfer. In the Transfer dialog box, click the Settings button.
  2. With Mainframe selected under Protocol, click the Mainframe tab.

  3. Under Host, from the System list, select CMS.

  4. Click the Advanced button.

The options are:

CR/LF processing

When you select one of these options, a carriage return character and a linefeed character are stripped from the end of each line of the file you are sending.

CR/LF processing is typically appropriate for ASCII and JISCII files but not for binary files; the defaults for these options are set up accordingly.

Logical record length

Type the record size (in bytes) for the file being created on the host. If you leave this box blank, the record size is determined by the host. Use a value between 0 and 32768 to accommodate the range accepted by your host. For ASCII files, set this value to accommodate the longest line in your file. When you leave this box blank, the host typically accepts lines of up to 80 characters.

Additional IND$FILE parameters

Use this text box for any parameters specific to the IND$FILE (or APVUFILE) program on your host system. The contents of this text box are appended to the end of the transfer command generated by Reflection. Reflection does not check the contents of this text box for validity.

For a description of the NOSO, SO, and User Mode settings, see DBCS File Transfer Settings.
