General Discussion / Need some help with REXX
« on: August 30, 2016, 04:44:38 pm »

I've got some txt-files that I have to "manipulate" before importing them to a database, simple enough
for someone who knows REXX, but unfortunately I'm not (yet) one of those.
Does anyone know about a sample that reads a txt-file, does some manipulation to each line and
writes to a new txt-file? (I'm stuck with the "manipulation" part  :o )

The files are for business purposes and I can't go public with them, however, I can provide samples
if somone's interested. If so, please pm me.

Just thought I'd inform that I got this printer to work with an old HP Color LaserJet 3700 ps-driver, incl. duplex,
using SLPR. This model seems to have lots of functions, not supported by the ps-driver, ie scanning to a network
folder. Will report more when I, hopefully, get it set up right.

Is anyone using this printer with eCS/OS2?
Print languages: HP PCL 6, HP PCL 5c, HP Postscript Level 3 emulation, PCLm, PDF, URF
Sounds promising but I'd appreciate comments.

Applications / DBExpert update multiple fields and records
« on: August 16, 2015, 03:22:41 pm »

DBExpert has a nice "query function" to update values of selected fields and records in a table but I'd like to run this procedure with a macro.
The table TRANS has many fields and records and I need to change the values of fields CPA, CPB, CPC and CPD for all the records.
Does anyone have a sample of how to do this?


Applications / Drupal, apache2 and php5
« on: June 25, 2015, 03:29:10 pm »

Apache2 and php5 seem to run fine so I thought I'd give Drupal a try. Installation works until it starts claiming about a missing directory and a couple of files and it states it cannot created them. I have verified that the directory and files do exist where they're supposed to. Believe this has to do with a conf-file or possibly php.ini, the settings in them are all new to me, and a simple google takes me to "answers" for other OS. (Which for a newbie confuses the situation even more.)
This is only a test setup on "localhost" so I wonder if any of you can tell me what to change where in order to allow Drupal full read/write access to necessary directories.


General Discussion / Business Interoperability Interfaces
« on: April 24, 2015, 08:06:46 pm »

Businesses and authorities keep implementing "EHF - Electronic Trading Format" , meaning that they can receive and send invoices/credit notes (and lots of other stuff) in a "special" format. Believe they use "some xml-format" .

Sooner or later we have to offer this to some of our clients, and possibly convert ps or pdf to the "EHF" specifications could be the solution.

Does anyone have any experience with this?


A lot of reading here:  :-\

Utilities / unixODBC 010
« on: March 24, 2015, 07:49:48 pm »
Having some trouble with the sqlite driver that comes with unixODBC 010:
Created the sample "ex1" that comes with SQLITE- and it opens correctly with
the SQLite manager in Seamonkey.
When I use unixODBC data manger it logs on successfully but it lists:
User Tables (0)
System Tables (0)
Views (0)
Procedures (0)
and this error is in the sql.log:
DIAG [HY000] [SQLite]no such table: tb11 (1)
Any ideas why?

Applications / Database programs
« on: February 28, 2015, 10:16:50 pm »
Have used DBExpert for years but for various reasons I'm looking for another solution. Although a bit outdated, vprexx seems to be an alternative, however, I'm having some problems with it and ODBC. Trying to reverse engineer a database results in the error "-1 environment allocation error".
Looking for a small soltuion and have looked at QT and SQLite, but I only find sources for SQLite, no "ready to use" binaries.

Does anyone know about another "easy to use", solution (easy to use=DBExpert) ?

Applications / Crash in TB and SM when opening pdf attachments
« on: November 06, 2014, 04:01:46 pm »
Both Thunderbird 17.0.11and 24.8.1b1, and also any Seamonkey version I've tried after SM 1.1.7, including the latest 2.21b1, keep crashing when I try to open pdf-attachments. Sometimes they open without problems, but mostly they result is a crash.
Anyone else having this problem or know about a solution?

Utilities / Print to Email.....sort of...
« on: October 15, 2014, 04:01:26 pm »
Does anyone know about a utility that can do the following:

Select pdf-files from a folder and automatically mail them as attachments.
The files are in the format CLIENT12345INVOICE67890.PDF so it has to select based on the client no. and look up the email address for this client in a table or something.
Then move the files that are mailed to one folder, and those not sent to another since not all clients have an email registered.

Something like Zan Image Printer that can extract the address from the file would be even better.

Any ideas, except telling me to learn REXX ?

Applications / Edit pdf files
« on: October 11, 2014, 08:30:49 pm »
Does anyone know about a program (for eCS/OS2) that is capable of editing pdf-files
such as adding text/annotations ?

Utilities / Update eCS beta ISO
« on: December 03, 2013, 08:24:27 pm »

In order to test eCS 2.2 beta I need to update the ISO with newer usb-drivers.
Does anyone have a "How to" for this?
(I know there are "Windows-tools", but I'd like to this under eCS.)
