First of all, 'clunky old EBCDIC' systems still run most of the financial world. Companies like BankofAmerica, Amex, and Visa seem to think they're pretty OK.

You're very likely fighting the system, and not using it the way it's designed. OS/390 applications are very batch-centric, sort of similar to the way Unixy things are pipe-centric. I can practically guarantee you that there is a batch interface to what you want to do. Gen one job, or one step per lease and let 'em rip. Google for 'IBM JCL' to get started.

Finally, make sure your managment (and you) understand that you're just making up the lease calc if you go that route. This is money you're dealing with, and money mistakes tend to piss people off in a way that nothing else does. Be *very* careful to have your work audited by a bean-counter who knows what they're doing.

Good Luck.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
