The COBOL system is riddled with them. I was asking in general. Other than the binary field at the beginning of each record, all the fields are, for the most part, text with some packed decimal to add grief to an already depressing problem. I could get you a real layout if you think it would help, but I'm not asking someone to code a solution but tell me how to do it.

I don't think I understand what other details of the file format you want. The file can have 2 types of records; one could be 800 bytes while the other 400 bytes. The first 4 bytes of each record contain the length of the record in binary format. What else would you like to know?

I have a legacy COBOL system that generates some variable blocked files (DSORG=VBA), which I need to process. Can this even be done in native Java (11), or is there a 3rd-party tool that I can purchase to satisfy my requirements? I am completely lost. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

That worked. The % was in the book. I just copied it as is. Thank you all so much for your help, I really appreciate it.

Yes, I exited the command window and re-entered it. The path variable is unchanged. And Yes, the Party.java program is from the book you mentioned, but that is irrelevant since I can't find the javac.exe to tell me the error itself.

Actually there is a javac.exe in javapath. Further down the path variable, there is a 2nd path which looks like 'C:\Program Files\Java\jdk-15\bin' which also contains a javac.exe.

I am trying to compile a Java program at the command prompt. I have modified my PATH variable to locate the javac.exe, but I still get the following error (see attachment). I have read the FAQ on this topic, but I am still having problems. Please help! :
