FTP Will strip all trailing blanks, Why?
Posted on 2001-08-27
I have a PF where in some cases the last 2 fields (2x12 characters) are filled with blanks. During FTP from AS/400 to an ASCII machine, all the records are truncated after the last non blank character. So I'm missing the last two fields. This give some problems for the program that has to process the retrieved data.
How can I prevent this truncation without changing the contents of the resultfile??
Is there any EBCDIC character that will replaced during translation to ASCII by a blank, without stripping the trailing blanks??
