I am trying to generate a file that will be fed to AS 400.Part of the data , for eg :character position from 10-20 of every line in the file has to be put in EBCDIC format .
Is there any utility classes (Open Source ) to convert data to packed data format ??
I have found some sample code to convert decimal data (numeric data ) to packed format but none to convert to alpha numeric.In my case ,I will also have to convert some alphanumeric data into EBCDIC format.
Here http://mindprod.com/products.html#TRT is a class called TRT that claims to do the translation. TRT is a System 360 assembler instruction used for all kinds of translations. Cute name for the class.
