pcDATAck is a utility program in PL/B Companion (formerly DATABUS Companion) that gives details about files. Knowing the exact format and content of PC files is crucial to PL/B programmers because of the importance placed on fixed vs variable length records, space compression, deleted records, the type and location of the End-of-File, accessibility of all 256 ASCII characters, and the interchange of data between many different packages (dBase, Lotus, W/P). pcDATAcheck quickly checks data/text files for:
Record Lengths - Min/Max (Fixed/Variable)
End-of-Files - Logical/Physical, Valid/Invalid
TABs - Space Compression
NULs - Deleted Records/Characters
Non-ASCII Characters (i.e., characters other than data or controls)
Extra LFs, Extra CRs, FFs, BSs, DELs, etc.
View, search, and modifying any type of file.
pcDATAcheck not only checks files quickly, it allows a wide variety of record selection options (rec ord length and/or content) and gives several options for output (display/printer/logfile) and reporting (simple count, detail reporting by record/location, record extraction, or interactive review/modify).
pcDATAcheck is invaluable in testing and debugging standard PL/B applications. No other PC utility provides these capabilities.
