Problem with Put Statement Longer than 72 characters

Post by mpeck » Wed Jul 26, 2017 11:14 am

I am having a problem with a PUT command that is currently spanning two lines in FTP, that I am converting to SFTP:

Current Command:

put //TEMP.G05DIRF.ENGFRE.big.mvsp +
g05dirf.sftp.big.mvs.txt1


Results:

cozsftp> lzopts mode=text,notrim
mode=text notrim
cozsftp> cd Outbox
cozsftp> put //TEMP.G05DIRF.ENGFRE.big.mvsp +
Uploading //TEMP.G05DIRF.ENGFRE.BIG.MVSP to /Outbox/+
ZosSettingsÝI¨: Transfer options: clientcp=IBM-1047,mode=text,servercp=ISO8859-
ZosDatasetÝI¨: Opening dataset TEMP.G05DIRF.ENGFRE.BIG.MVSP for read with optio
ZosDatasetÝI¨: Closing dataset //TEMP.G05DIRF.ENGFRE.BIG.MVSP - 0 records read,
Ý17.575¨ Invalid command.
cozsftp> g05dirf.sftp.big.mvs.txt1
CoZBatchÝI¨: returning rc=exitcode=1

When you run the SFTPPROC, the SFTPIN DD input is processed by the z/OS Unix shell.

To continue lines in the z/OS Unix shell, you can use a trailing backslash '\' character
For example:

Code: Select all

put //TEMP.G05DIRF.ENGFRE.big.mvsp \
g05dirf.sftp.big.mvs.txt1

Not to revive an old thread, but was this fixed in a certain release or version? currently running the SFTPPROC for CoZBatch on 4.2.0 and it appears the line continuation character does no work as described.

Can anyone else verify this?

I have been able to get this by using a heredoc (<<EOB/EOB). without it , the line continuation will not work.

Try adding "set -x" to the beginning of your shell script, which should product a shell script trace that is often useful.

Thank you. That is good to know. Personally I have been trying to shy away from using the shell scripts and providing the commands directly to COZBATCH. I dont know if it recommended or supported, but i have yet to run into an issue doing it in this fashion that the scripts got me around. The only thing was a heredoc is required if you have to use a line continuation. To me it appears more straight forward, but i do not have a shell scripting background.

Code: Select all

quit

COZBATCH just starts the z/OS Unix shell (/bin/sh), so your input is a shell script.

BTW: we have some sample PROCs and scripts for running Co:Z SFTP in batch that we recommend you try:
