1. 17-20 August 2008 15th Natural Conference 1 Introduction to Natural for Unix David Gahring Tetrad Solutions, Inc.

2. 17-20 August 2008 15th Natural Conference 2 Introductions David Gahring Tetrad Solutions, Inc. [email protected] 904-742-5407

3. 17-20 August 2008 15th Natural Conference 3 Overview Environment Natural Architecture Natural Navigation Unix Editor Variants Key Comparisons More to come…

4. 17-20 August 2008 15th Natural Conference 4 Environment For the Developer A new paradigm for the Developer “Closer” to the OS than on the traditional Mainframe environment Shell environment enables easier integration with Unix data and services Broader set of tools and services available for use during application development The clear distinction between online and batch is a bit blurred SPOD integration option for total GUI development environment

5. 17-20 August 2008 15th Natural Conference 5 Environment For the End User New Terminal Emulation (typically) Some minor differences in the general terminal environment Mouse support (** IMPORTANT **) Emulation Colors Processing behavior (x-lock..) (Possible) Session Management differences ASCII vs EBCDIC collation sequence

6. 17-20 August 2008 15th Natural Conference 6 Natural Architecture Natural system files FUSER/FNAT in the File System typically: $NATDIR/fuser $NATDIR/$NATVERS/fnat FDIC not used for DDM’s Backup and recovery procedures Adabas backup won’t include programs Other tools/approaches required multi-step backup/recovery required for comprehensive plan Permissions considerations for “sensitive” source content (I.e. paswords, etc.)

7. 17-20 August 2008 15th Natural Conference 7 Natural Architecture Sysmain interface integrated into Natural menu Natural Security File (DDM) permissions managed via individual libraries (default SYSTEM)

8. 17-20 August 2008 15th Natural Conference 8 Natural Navigation the sagenv file Your .profile settings Starting a Natural session parameters Script “front-end” to establish environment Using the Natural Menu Direct Commands Moving from Library to Library Sysmain and the Natural System Files sysprof

9. 17-20 August 2008 15th Natural Conference 9 Unix Editor Variants Preview the Editors Program Editor Map Editor Data Area Editor Live Demo Harriett Stoddard Tetrad Solutions, Inc.

10. 17-20 August 2008 15th Natural Conference 10 Key Comparisons Hex/binary values in your data Character set issues Collation impact Migration issues Natural Maps No longer 3270 device dependent Attribute byte position no longer required Printing “Online” printers are always available Broader printing options Print to file Direct to printer Use Unix tools to enhance printing dynamically PDF E-mail, etc..

11. 17-20 August 2008 15th Natural Conference 11 Key Comparisons Work Files Typically set/accessed through environment variables Also defined through Natural DEFINE WORK statement API USR1050N in SYSEXT can be used to as well Multiple data formats sag, aka “binary” ascii/ascii-compressed, aka linefeed delimited Entire Connection CSV

12. 17-20 August 2008 15th Natural Conference 12 More to Come… Natural Installation/Configuration Monitoring Natural for Unix Natural Programming for Unix Communicating with Unix from Natural Miscellaneous Topics of Interest under Unix OPX: Operational Processing for uniX
