CBT V487 Final Version - October - 27 - 2013
The files are all packaged with PKZIP and are in EBCDIC so you download
from here, unzip, upload as Binary (No EBCDIC to ASCII translation) to
your mainframe to an FB80 data set. Sequential files are suffixed
.DATA and are ready to use after being uploaded (again as Binary). File
1 through 5 are the only files always not packaged with XMIT.
Files suffixed .XMI and are in XMIT format so you will need to do a TSO
command RECEIVE INDATASET(???) where ??? is the file you upload to
transform it back to usable PDS or sequential file. You will need
a utility to unzip (decompress) the .ZIP files and I suggest either
7-Zip (free) , WinZip , or RAR.
For latest versions of files that have been updated since the last tape
version, please check the Updates page. It is advisable to check the
Updates page BEFORE you check this page for the file number that you
want, just to make sure you get the latest version of the code
