COMMAND TYPE : UTILITY
DIRA can use file with variable or fixed record length. But on a VAX/VMS operating system the user can not modify file with fixed length record appending new fields. This task reads a fixed record length file and writes it as a variable record length. After an edit session the user can fix the file with the command DB_FIXA.
In a unix system this command is useless.
This task does not require that the file is inserted in a PDB structure.
Input File name:
Example : FILE1.DAT
