FUTIl 4.79 is now available


This version vontains a few enhancements around the displaying and handling of hex.

When a field contains invalid data, in the single record screen, an additional two lines for hex input are display automatically and you are prevented from keying on the top line.  On the Hex lines you can either enter Hex or any other displayable characters, letters or numbers on the top line, so long as the bottom line is blank.  This gives you the ability to mix and match hex with normal characters as much as you like,

Additionally, by default Spaces in Hex mode are now displayed as a space and not 4/0.  This is to make the screen less cluttered and thus easier to read.  You can switch to full hex mode and back again with the new function key F17.

Please note that due to a pointer incompatability issue, this release will not run on V4R5, I hope to find a solution to the problem shortly, but for now, it has only been verified at V5R4 and later...Sorry!


Full list of Changes in version 4.79

  • Fixed Highlighting of searches, now display White RI and Red RI correctly In single record display,
  • F10 to toggle between Upper and Mixed case input has now been added to single record display.
  • In single record display, when subfile records are not written because of no space on the screen for all hex lines, we no longer try to process them.
  • Assuming all data crappy for now.  I'm getting inconsistent results displaying the same file in two different sessions on the same machine. sometimes, the job just ends, sometimes it's handled correctly with a negative response, sometimes the session hangs.  I've no idea why! Even running in the same session twice gives difference results!
  • When editing an individual record and in hex mode, you can now enter normal characters on the first hex line so long as the second is blank for those bytes. Therefore, you can easily mix and match hex as required.
  • New function key F17=Toggle Hex Blanks.  This will switch between showing blanks in hex mode as Blank or the more traditional X'40'
  • Multi record screen does not now have extra option fields on it when Displaying in hex mode.
  • On Hex Display, Spaces in the data (X'40') can now be written as a space rather than 4/0 over two lines.  This is currently the default.

Note that service program SSLSTRSRV has changed in this.  If you are loading FUTIL into a library where you ahve alredy loaded another SLIC profuct, there may be incompatabilities until those products are updated with the newer version.

To be on the safe side, install toa  clean library, even if upgrading.
