under the old Qtility, I could pipe the output of certain options like file checking to either the terminal or a SPL output
this weekend I may be running some file re-builds and file verifies and wanted to pipe the output to SPL so I don't accidentally lose record counts.
I believe that errors will appear in a SPL file, but the counts come up in a popup window.
I'd like to "get into the 21st century" with CometEx but I really need the hard copy.
It's annoying to have to do the re-build, but I've got 3 large files with over 1 million rows and I believe that the maximum number of bad keys is under 10. But I've got to get rid of the bad links before I try to re-format the 3 files to accommodate Serial Numbers that are twice as large as regular satellite receivers. I was testing my re-format programs and each one died upon hitting the first bad sector.
The final "go-live" will be what people call "the Big Bang"... I'll have 48 hours over some weekend to re-format the files, install 200-300 programs and check out that we can write orders on Monday. the only way to make this happen is to get rid of the bad links, which I can do now.
P.S. if I'm quick enough, we may be able to have 72 hours on the Labour day weekend in September... but testing the order entry could be a stumbling block
P.P.S. today's Latin word.... stumbling block.... SCANDALUM :)
