Record Editor 0.96h
Features at a glance
Key features include the ability to display fixed file formats, such as Cobol or Mainframe data files, supports editing of text and binary files, as well as of native Mainframe Ebcdic and Ascii~PC files.
In addition, the software allows users to resize columns by dragging them with the mouse cursor, as well as to rearrange columns by dragging and dropping them. It uses a record-layout definition for displaying information in a human readable form.
With Record Editor, users can view and edit fixed field length data files, CSV (Comma-Separated Values) files, supporting both complex and fixed width CSV files, compare files of different or identical formats, as well as to copy files from one format to another.
The record-layout definitions used by Record Editor to display the data in a human readable format is stored in a database. Two options exist, one for editing the record layouts and another one for importing Cobol record layouts into the database.
The software can be used by people who are interfacing with IBM mainframe systems, as well as by mainframe programmers. It can be successfully used for sending data to IBM 4690 and 4680 register controllers, for transferring data across computers or for automated warehouse control systems.
