I'm taking in a file FTP'ed from a UNIX box
into my VB app on my desktop
I'm writing a .DIF file on a floppy.
That is read into another VB app

Now they want me to do it so the scheduler calls my app after the FTP.

No need here for a GUI interface. Ipsofacto no need for a VB app.

So I'll write it in my native java.

Anything special about writing it to the .DIF file?


I found there was nothing special about getting the UNIX file in - except
the fact that it did not have typical end of record fields. And as a result
I had to read the whole file in and parse through it. But that worked.
