Carriage control is used by some EBCDIC files to indicate line and page breaks.


In files that have carriage control, the first character in each line is used to indicate whether a line or page break should be placed after (or even before) the line.


Carriage control (sometimes referred to as CCTYPE) can be one of 3 types:



Machine (CCTYPE=M)



V does not automatically recognize files with carriage control. If your EBCDIC file contains carriage control, you need to select EBCDIC Options from the View menu (or click on EBC on the status bar) and select the correct CCTYPE.


If a file contains page breaks, V will paginate it. In particular, V will display a page marker (dotted line) before the start of each page.




Carriage Control is only supported for EBCDIC files - not for ASCII files.
