Using Stream Files, 2.0

Abstract Stream files are the physical file format used by most modern systems, including Windows, Unix, and Linux. Support for stream files have been part of the MCP for more than 25 years. The ability to manipulate these files using MCP applications is important for the Internet and integration with other external systems.

This presentation is an update of one originally given in 2001. It will describe the implementation of stream files in the MCP, how to generate and read stream files in both COBOL and ALGOL application programs, the advantages and disadvantages of using stream files internally in MCP applications, and how to transfer stream files into and out of the MCP environment using standard MCP facilities.
