View Full Version : Using VEdit utilizing the command shell in Windows

March 10th, 2016, 02:22 PM
I am doing a very large number of EBCDIC conversions on the command line with 1800+ scripts.

I would like to suppress the GUI from popping up while the command runs.

Is this possible?

Yes, it is possible to suppress the GUI. Make sure to use the -q parameter to invoke quiet mode.

For example, presuming example ebcdic file named data.ebc try the following from the command line:

C:\>vpw -q -c'translate_block(0,filesize,reverse)' data.ebc -a data.asc

In the above example, a byte-for-byte conversion is performed on an ebcdic encoded file. Files containing packed decimal (and other computational fields) require a conversion layout that can be created by automated means.
