Provide a mapping from data in PCF to the supplied format structures

When formatting PCF data I want to code from the data to a meaningful string. For example

Field 1157 : value 1168 is

Usage Type : Usage Pageset

We need a mapping so that a field with type 1157 -> Use MQIACF_STR




I tried to attach the files I use - but the tool will not accept .txt nor .csv despite what the tools says.

    This is not something we expect to include in MQ, beyond samples such as amqsevt which does include maps for relevant attributes.

    Because I could not attach the source, Ive put it up on github

    We could also do with a couple of constants to aid look up. Ive used...

    • MQMAP(10000,MQCFT_STR), // PCF special 10,000 used for looking up PCF Extended responses. This returns strings such as MQCFT_RESPONSE, and MQCFT_STRING

    • MQMAP(10001,MQCMD_STR), // PCF Special 10,001 for looking up PCF command. This returns strings such as MQCMD_INQUIRE_Q_MGR, and MQCMD_CLEAR_Q
