PEngiEZT converts Easytrieve Plus programs to IBM Mainframe COBOLII or S/390 COBOL compatible code, or PEngiBAT. Its primary objective is
to provide the ability to run Easytrieve Plus programs in COBOL mode,
eliminating the Easytrieve Plus cost and inefficiencies.
PEngiEZT gives you a choice
You can continue developing programs using the Easytrieve format.
The only thing that changes is JCL. That is, you use PEngiEZT translator
and COBOL compiler in place of Easytrieve. The program source can be
maintained in Easytrieve format.
You can convert the Easytrieve programs to PEngiBAT or COBOL for good.
You can convert existing and newly developed programs. Thereafter you would
maintain COBOL code or enjoy the power of PEngiBAT.
If you do not own Easytrieve you can use PEngiEZT and enjoy the
benefits without ever purchasing Easytrieve.
What is Supported
PEngiEZT converts standard Easytrieve Plus batch programs. It
supports VSAM, QSAM, SAM, DB2 (Native and Easytrieve Mode), Tape Files and Unit Record Devices.
It also supports the Easytrieve Macro Language and COPY directive. In most instances there will
be no changes required to your existing Easytrieve programs.
IDMS and IMS (DL1) are not Supported at this time.
