Creating an exit file

The example described in this topic was designed to operate using the cft-tcp.conf configuration example located in <installdir>/runtime/conf. For this example, you should have already customized the file using the instructions in Running Transfer CFT for the First Time.

Application components

The <installdir>/runtime/src/exit/ subdirectory contains:

  • A sample source module, called exfxmp1.c, with its associated include file exfus.h
  • This program demonstrates the various user functions:
  • ALLOC_TYP: the EXIT allocates the file
  • OPEN_TYP: the EXIT opens the file
  • DATA_TYP: the EXIT writes or reads the file
  • And so on
  • The mk_cftexitf compilation procedure, which uses exfxmp2.c to generate the CFTEXITF program

The <installdir>/lib subdirectory contains the:

  • libcftexf.a module; this library allows you to use the Transfer CFT file EXITs

To generate the sample CFTEXITF application, proceed as follows:

  1. Access the <installdir>/runtime/src/exit/ directory.
  2. Enter the command:

     make -f mk_cftexitf

Testing the exit

  1. Access the <installdir>/runtime/conf/ directory.
  2. Generate the Transfer CFT internal datafiles using the cftinit utility with the configuration file:

    cftinit cft-tcp.conf

  3. When the cftinit complete message is displayed, run Transfer CFT using the cftstart utility:


  4. When the CFTMAIN process ID is xxxxx message is displayed, run a transfer using the command:

    CFTUTIL send part=BOSTON, idf=fic1

  5. After a few seconds, you can check the transfer state by entering the following command. If the transfers have not terminated, repeat the cftcatab command.


  6. Stop Transfer CFT using the cftstop utility:


  7. Examine the contents of the cft_log. sav file in the <installdir>/runtime/log/ directory and locate the messages inserted by the EXIT.

    The files created in <installdir>/runtime/ are empty, as the sample EXIT is only a simulation.
