st: appending or tostring programming issue
I have a program that prepares data (and code) for a DOS-based program.
I need a line above the actual data that is of the form:
with the data below, so it looks like:
I had done this by creating a one line tempfile with a string variable
with value "NPKY XXXX" and appending the data file to that file.
Because this first line is in string format, I had to -tostring- the data
as well. No problem until a user tried a file with 90,000 different
id's;more than the 65,000+ that tostring allows.
Is there a way to generate the header and the data and concatonate them
without using append? This way I could keep the id's in numeric
Or a way to work around the tostring limitation?
