Abstract

On AS/400, a new editing mode, called Fake-DP mode, has been created. In this mode, the system allows entry of control characters (below x'40') into prompt-type fields. This new mode is used to specify the leading and trailing text for purposes of footnote formatting. It could also be used to find and replace control characters and to specify leading and trailing text for purposes of formatting outline headings.
