Moving server generated output to the client system

Technote (FAQ)


How do I get a Genero application server program to write report output onto my client system?


Users need server program output on their client systems and the software documentation does not address the issue directly.


Genero server application programs provide several methodsto will write server side output.. Once the server-side output is generated, an additional step can be used to copy the output file to a location on the client system, using the function fgl_putfile().

Usage: CALL fgl_putfile( source STRING, destination STRING)

    "source" is the fully qualified name of the file to be copied.

    "destination" is the fully qualified name on the client system.

The application developer needs to exercise caution with fgl_profile(), and impose appropriate restrictions on the source file to be copied.
