ipxicv This program is used to process and convert binary files from an TGT server into a visual data stream that can be editied or uploaded directly into a nice data base. As there TGT also send Status info down the same channels, the ST header field is searched and Texts file (ie that do not stat "FIN" or "PAGE") are sent back to wheel with a new destination of TGTmsg The input file is the raw TGT data. The output file is normally in the format of : FINO|TGT|(date/time)|(exch)|(stoxid)|(fieldId)|(data) eg: FINO|TGT|12-3-96|L|ZCAS61300|AH| FINO|TGT|12-3-96|L|ZCAS61300|AK|103.5 FINO|TGT|12-3-96|L|ZCAS61300|AL| FINO|TGT|12-3-96|L|ZCAS61300|AS| FINO|TGT|12-3-96|L|ZCAS61300|BA| FINO|TGT|12-3-96|L|ZCAS61300|BB| FINO|TGT|12-3-96|L|ZCAS61300|BD|97.5 FINO|TGT|12-3-96|L|ZCAS61300|BS| FINO|TGT|12-3-96|L|ZCAS61300|CA|108 FINO|TGT|12-3-96|L|ZCAS61300|CB|102 FINO|TGT|12-3-96|L|ZCAS61300|CL| FINO|TGT|12-3-96|L|ZCAS61300|CS|1000 However if you use the 'output-style:custom' parameter, a custom output line can be processed. For this all the fields and data for each Stock is put into a FipHdr structure and FipSeq is used to extract using the 'output-line' parameter. This defaults to : \V9|\V8|\MD|\CL|\YC|\ED|\CV|\ST|\II|\MA\\n" Note that 2 extra FipHdr fields are added V8 - Epic V9 - Exchange Letter V7 - Page number for Page traffic while all the other 2 letter codes are as per the TGT Topic 3 feed specification. A parameter file for the data is held in tables/setup and defaults to TGT.DATA. Keywords for TGT.DATA parameter file are : ; comment line filename: New filename for output file in FipSeq outfmt: Name for the output format field, DF chrset: Name of the SC or Source chrset for xchgs sendq: Output queue if NOT send to spool/2go for distribution If this does NOT start with a '/', it is assumed under spool. send-pageq: Output queue for Page traffic if NOT spool/2go If this does NOT start with a '/', it is assumed under spool. doneq: Done queue for original files once sent - or 'delete' to zap If this does NOT start with a '/', it is assumed under spool. textdest: Destination for Text files - service messages, lists of valid magazines etc. This defaults to 'TGTmsg' and is be in tables/sys/USERS. pagedest: Destination for Page files once they have been processed. This defaults to 'TGTpageX' and is be in tables/sys/USERS. defdest: Default Destination for files if nothing is found the Fip DU field as per sys/USERS force: Force the Destination to ALWAYS go to this destination (DU) nohdr: Do NOT add a Fip style header on the output file dbname: name of the database for FIN default: FINO tablename: name of the table/stored procedure default: TGT page-dbname: name of the database for PAGE default: FINOPAGE page-tablename: name of the table/stored procedure for Page traffic default: TGT(pageno) output-style: singleline or custom default: singleline output-line: FipSeq for output of an Epic default: none To use output-line, 'output-style' must be custom. output-page-line: FipSeq for output of an Page default: none To use output-page-line, 'output-style' must be custom. before: FipSeq of data to insert before data default: none after: FipSeq of data to insert after data default: none fiphdr: FipSeq of extra FipHdr fields default: none screen-code:(hex code) (string to add) default: none Normally Screen modes for Page data is ignored - use this to transform colors etc Some fields are not in the default TGT format of (sizebyte) (data). To convert these properly, please check with the TGT doc and use one of the following : ; reformat certain fields that have fractions etc in convnumber: ah,ak,al,ap,ay ; convert a binary number to display ie octal 321 -> 3 chrs "321" convbin: st ; convert a series of bits to an 8 chrs ie octal 003 -> "00000011" convbits: ii ; convert a page buffer field - usually ONLY PB convpage: pb ; convert an TGT BYTE field - see DTD 6.27 for description of TGT Byte layout convbytetype: SL,sy,sh,rt,rh ----- Notes ----- Default output format field (DF) is TGT. Default chrset field (SC) is TGT. Default send queue is spool/2go. If no default destination is specified (defdest:) ... ----- Input Switches ---- All optional : -i : input queue default: spool/xicv If this does NOT start with a '/', it is assumed under spool. -z : parameter file in tables/setup default: tables/setup/TGT.DATA -w : file wait for files arriving across a network. def: 10 secs -u : owner if not that of the logon default: logon at start -l : do NOT log files in default: log -x : do NOT strip fields with nothing in them default: strip -V : topic version default: current (6 as at feb08) -v : print version number and exit Version Control ;2d2 01jun00 page traffic too ;a 04dec01 added screen formats ;b-c8 14jan08 tweaks for GlobalTopic ;c10 added K5-504=EV ;d 20sep08 for History stuff (copyright) 2021 and previous years FingerPost Ltd.
