Language / 'picutre' mnemonic

Assuming a command like this: print 'picture'(10,10,200,200,"myfile.jpg")
Is there a way to have the image reside on the Windx client?  I have tried prefix the file name with windx and a full path - [wdx]c:\images\myfile.jpg, but to no avail.  Thanks!

A final note here. I have no idea why this works, but if I adjust the block size down to 256 bytes when I am transferring from Linux to windows it all works.  I had cut down to 1024, and then 512. Both of those failed, so I stopped.  Go figure.

I think we got off a little bit.  I am trying to read data from a linux file and write it to a local file.  I open the linux source; I create and open the windows target. I read the linux file with a block.  When I issue the write to the local windows file, it PxPlus dies.  The customer provided this grid:
                         IP               OS                       PVX VERSION   
LIVE SERVER       Red Hat Enterprise 5.7   514(32 bit)   
TEST SERVER       Centos 7                   771(64 bit)   
TEST CLIENT    Windows 10 Home           771(64 bit)   

What is odd is that if the  test client is pointed over to the Centos Server the failure does not occur.

Customer wishing to access their PxPlus application running on a windows server from their Mac.  Any ideas on solutions here.

James, Yes, empty file.  Mike, I will check on the AV issue; if I can create the file (which I can) doesn't that prove that the directory is writeable?

I added the error branch on the write record.  Providex still dropped out on the write record. So, to be clear, I can create the serial file on the Windx Client machine; I can open the file. As soon as I try a write record of any size (I did create a file and do a write record of the word "test" with no issue) providex exits.

I verified that the Windx version matches the version of Providex.  The instruction that fails is he write record. When I step through that command providex drops.  I am trying to re-connect with the customer and see if an error branch will trap an error (I doubt it, but I'm going to try).

Mike,  I *think* you missed the substring on the "this_File$" in the execute command.

Thin Client/WindX / Server to Windx failure

I'm almost embarassed to post this as we are talking pvx 7.7, but here goes.  I customer is replacing their Redhat 5.7 server with a new Centos 7 server.  PVX seems to run fine, but any time it tries to do certain things via Windx, the session drops. So, this program will cause the issue on the write record:

0010 open (hfn,isz=-1)"/tmp/4586-1.out"; let IN=lfo
0015 let THIS_FILE$="[wdx]c:\infor\jmg.pdf"
0020 execute "[wdx]serial "+$22$+THIS_FILE$(6)+$22$
0025 open lock (hfn,isz=-1)THIS_FILE$; let OUT=lfo
0030 read record (IN,siz=512)XX$
0035 write record (OUT)XX$

If I change the IP address that the Windx client is using to be the old server, everything works.  Any insight here would be appreciated.

Thanks!  Michael

You are correct sir.  Long week I guess. Thanks.

Devon,  That was just me being sloppy.  /facts93 is a symbolic link to /facts/facts93. In order to eliminate that as the issue I changed everything to be /facts/facts93 in odbc.ini. If I issue the command with -d /facts/facts93 you see the success on the first and a fail on the second.

ODBC / ODBC on Redhat

This is configured for 64 bit on RH 7.9. unixODBC is installed.  If I do this:
[root@rhlinux etc]# /usr/pxpsqlodbc/pxpsql -d /facts93 LIST |grep AR_CUST

You can see AR_CUST_MAST as a table. Good.  Now this:
[root@rhlinux etc]# /usr/pxpsqlodbc/pxpsql -d /facts/facts93 LIST table AR_CUST_MAST

ERROR: Invalid Table Name or No Columns Returned By LIST Columns Command.

Since (think) I know the table name is good, what would cause the column list to fail.  Providex.ddf shows the file, and the file has an embedded IO list (as well as an IO program, see attached.

Any insight appreciated. - Michael

Create a link file using /dev/null on *nix or nul on windows.  Use the driver viewer provided with PxPlus.


Programming / Strange if then else behavior
« on: March 08, 2023, 09:00:05 AM »
This is an abstraction of a code issue we are seeing:
0005 let mike$="P"
0010 if mike$="P" then {
0015 print "Yes P"
0020  } else if mike$="T" then {
0025 print "Doing T too"
0030  }
If you execute this, you get both outputs when it seems you should not get the "Doing T too".  I realize this is not great coding (I didn't write it) but it seems it should work.

Language / TCP/IP address
« on: January 16, 2023, 05:06:04 PM »
Is there anything in the PxPlus environment that stores/returns the IP address of a telnet or raw tcp connection on a *nix box.  I can get the value from the telnet login but it is ugly.  Same thing with the mac address (parse arp -a).
