Using batch mode

CFTUTIL is a command-line mode user interface, which serves to create the Transfer CFT working environment and set up Transfer CFT application parameters. You use it to:

  • Create and delete parameter, partner, catalog, log and account files
  • Display parameter, partner, catalog, log and account files
  • Send commands to Transfer CFT

In batch mode, CFTUTIL reads the Transfer CFT commands from a text file. The commands are either placed in the default communication medium, referred to Transfer CFT media, or in the medium defined by the CONFIG TYPE = COM MEDIACOM = ... command.

Batch execution

In batch mode with input flow rerouting, CFTUTIL reads the Transfer CFT commands in the file being submitted or in any text file. Output is made on the standard batch output. The operating mode is analogous in all respects to interactive operation.

  • SEND
