This article will provide an example of working with a file that contains [at least] one binary integer field. The assumption is made that you know how to read and write records, using record I/O (EXECIO) or stream I/O (linein, charin, linout, charout, and so on), so the focus here will be on the actual processing of binary numbers.

We seek to provide premier educational (and entertaining) material that is easy to read, and provides the highest level of assistance and enlightenment to you as a working TSO/ISPF professional.

We hope you'll make this site one of your regularly scheduled Internet destinations. We welcome all TSO/ISPF users, regardless of skill level or years on the job. Whether seasoned veteran, casual user or brand-new mainframe programmer, we encourage you to have a look around and "check us out". - John G. Kelley, Editor
