Euro symbol in the DOS Window

Postby Roy Hann » Sat, 07 May 2005 18:02:44 GMT

This isn't strictly an Ingres problem, but it is causing me problems with an
ABF application and I'm sure lots of other people here will have run into

How can I get an ABF application(or anything else for that matter) running
in a DOS window on W2K to display the Euro symbol (?) when displaying a
money value?

I have installed a code page conversion table that includes the Euro (858
OEM Multilingual Latin I + Euro), and I have issued the chcp 858 command in
the window.  If I press the keys for a Euro symbol it is echoed correctly.
I have also ingsetenv II_MONEY_FORMAT L:?, which echoes correctly as I type
it, but when I execute ingprenv I get back II_MONEY_FORMAT=L:?

Hah!  The first thing I tried after posting the question worked!

I hacked symbol.tbl with a binary editor, changing whatever random
bit-pattern it was that had got in there instead of 0xD5 (which is what I
wanted), and lo!  It works!.

Thanks for listening.  It helped.  It really did.

5.Phantom Processes and using DOS XCOPY in Windows 2003

I have a program running in Windows 2003 Task Scheduler which logs to
a Universe account and runs a program.  This program in turn initiates
a phantom using the "PHANTOM filename progname" command.  The
resulting phantom process calls a subroutine which builds an XCOPY
script (which also utilizes the NET USE command) and then executes it
in a DOS shell (to copy a file from the server on which the phantom is
running to another server).

This XCOPY script works fine when the program executing it(referred to
here as "progname") is invoked as a regular subroutine CALL from the
calling program.  The DOS shell command returns a "The command was
executed successfully" message; and the file shows up in the
destination directory.  However, when "progname" is invoked as a
phantom, the "command was executed successfully" message is displayed,
but the XCOPY doesn't occur.

Does anyone have any idea why this might be happening?  I'm told that
it might be a permissions issue.  I have other scheduled jobs which
execute similar XCOPY scripts without any problems; the only
difference is that the calling programs are being executed as normal
programs, not as phantoms.

I was testing the main program at TCL and decided to call the program
in Task Scheduler (that's where my other XCOPYs are executing).  I
tried that method and I still get the same result.  Again, it looks
like the issue lies with running the program as a phantom.

Any ideas out there?  Is there a limitation or liability with running
phantoms regarding permissions issues?  Shouldn't phantom processes be
able to do everything that a regular program process does?  After all,
it's the same code...

Any insights would be appreciated.
