The file transfer feature copies files between your PC and the mainframe. The Send and Receive commands open a dialog box where you specify the file type, transfer protocol, and host environment for the file transfer. You can also choose to have Rumba start the file transfer protocol. The mainframe file transfer feature works transparently with SimXfer and most IBM host operating systems, including CICS, TSO, and VM/CMS.
The mainframe file transfer also provides abundant functionality such as support for ASCII or binary transfers, Write Structured Field or Buffered data streams, EBCDIC-to-ASCII translation, and data compression. Rumba also supports DOS-based, batch, and drag-and-drop file transfer features.
