FUTIL version 4.80 now available


This version contains just a couple of small fixes -

  • Modified SSLFU11R, SSLFU14M and SSLSTR so that it should now run on V4R5.
    This was achieved by passing *NULL insteatd of *OMIT for return string. 
  • If Hex Mode was selected in single record display, the subfile would be  
    blown on ther multi record display.  Recalculate no of lines when coming
    out of single record to prevent this.

As usual, please ensure your installation library is clear before installing


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!
