WebFOCUS creates work files as required by your application.
WebFOCUS creates all extract files in a temporary directory on the
WebFOCUS Reporting Server, or in a user-defined location on the
WebFOCUS Reporting Server.
The available work files are:
- FOCSTACK files
contain resolved Dialogue Manager procedures.
allocated as FOCSORT.FOC, may be required for sorting with the TABLE,
TABLEF, and MATCH commands. The maximum size of a FOCSORT file is
1G of 256K pages.
- FOCPOST files
hold sequential output, which is saved by the POST command and read
by the PICKUP command.
- FOCSML files
are used by the Financial Modeling Language (FML) facility.
- OFFLINE sends
output to a file when the PRINT parameter is set to OFFLINE in WebFOCUS
Developers Studio. Allocate the file to ddname OFFLINE using a FILEDEF
command after the offline has been closed with the OFFLINE CLOSE command.
Example: Sending Output With the OFFLINE Command Under UNIX
following command sends further report output to the file EMPL OUTPUT
A with a fixed length record format and a record length of 80 bytes:
FILEDEF OFFLINE DISK TMP/EMPL.OUT (RECFM F LRECL 80)
