    - Directories & Profiles for test & production environments

  3. JCLcnv2real.doc - comprehensive conversion guide for your JCL,COBOL,DATA (vs demos)
    - decoumenting the problems & complexities of real-life conversions
    - converting FTP userids,passwords,IP#s to $variables that default
    differently depending on login by programmer, operator, scheduler

  4. JCLcnv3aids.doc - cross-references (copybooks, programs, parms, data-files, etc)
    - analyze JCL to determine essential data-files to transfer from mainframe
    - test/debug tips, joblog script to capture console logs

  5. JCLcnv4gdg.doc - Vancouver Utility GDG file handling system - Basic & Advanced features
    - Significant enhancements go well beyond GDG processing on the mainframe
    - GDG Indexed control file carries no of generations for each file
    - new generations not committed until JCL/script reaches Normal EOJ

  6. DATAcnv1.doc - Converting mainframe DATA files to unix/linux
    - Conversion jobs automatically generated from COBOL copybooks
    - preserving packed/binary fields (would be destroyed by translates)
    - Or unpack/edit to all text delimited files for loading database tables

  7. DATAcnv2.doc - A more comprehensive & complete solution to mainframe datafile conversion
    - presented as a demo conversion of 10 mainframe files of various types
    - stresses creating a control file of all datafiles to be transferred/converted
    - can analyze all JCL to determine datafiles to initiate operations on unix/linux
    - automated by coding the copybook in the control file of datafilenames
    - can capture the datafilename/copybookname relationship from user spreadsheet
