input-exit

Specifies the name or the full path name of the input record exit program that InfoPrint uses to process this line-data document. With InfoPrint Manager for AIX, if you specify the file name without a path, InfoPrint searches for the exit program in the paths specified by the PATH environment variable. With InfoPrint Manager for Windows, you must specify a fully qualified path name for the exit program. If you do not specify this option, InfoPrint does not use an input record exit program.

Usage Guidelines

  • This attribute is valid only for line-data documents.
  • If the input file is unformatted ASCII, but the fonts you are using contain EBCDIC, not ASCII, code points (you specify convert-to-ebcdic=yes), you can specify:
    • For InfoPrint Manager for AIX:
      /usr/lpp/psf/bin/apka2e
      Converts ASCII stream data to EBCDIC stream data.
      /usr/lpp/psf/bin/asciinpe
      Converts unformatted ASCII data into a record format and then converts the ASCII stream data to EBCDIC stream data.
    • For InfoPrint Manager for Windows
      install_path\bin\apka2e
      Converts ASCII stream data to EBCDIC stream data.
      install_path\bin\asciinpe
      Converts unformatted ASCII data into a record format and then converts the ASCII stream data to EBCDIC stream data.
  • If your input file uses fonts that have ASCII code points (you specify convert-to-ebcdic=no), you should not use the apka2e or asciinpe exit programs. However, if your unformatted ASCII file contains carriage returns and form feeds, you might want to specify this exit program supplied with InfoPrint:
    • For InfoPrint Manager for AIX:
      /usr/lpp/psf/bin/asciinp
      Converts unformatted ASCII data that contains carriage returns and form feeds into a record format that contains an American National Standards Institute (ANSI) carriage control character. This exit encodes the ANSI carriage control character in byte 0 of every record.
    • For InfoPrint Manager for Windows:
      install_path\bin\asciinp
      Converts unformatted ASCII data that contains carriage returns and form feeds into a record format that contains an American National Standards Institute (ANSI) carriage control character. This exit encodes the ANSI carriage control character in byte 0 of every record.
