E0180: GUFT, 'binary' file transmission problems

Platform: Any
Status: Closed, fixed in 5.0
Last updated: 1997-02-07 16:44:27

GUFT/GUFTSRV used the term 'binary' to mean fixed size (block)
record access and transmission mode. When operating on such a
'binary' file, binary data codeset (no translation) was also
assumed. This could cause unwanted results since the various
host implementations of the UFT protocol did not interpret
the term 'binary' the same way.

The data codeset and record access mode are now 2 separate
parameters. Access type can be set to VAR(iable) or FIX(ed)
and the codeset can be set to ASC(ci), EBC(dic) or BIN(ary).

Still, no logical record separator handling takes place when
operating on a FIXed type.
