RECORD TYPE 2. DATA LIST / v1 6 v2 7. END FILE TYPE. BEGIN DATA 112 2 12 112 2 12 END DATA. LIST VAR = ALL. The file definition statements are enclosed between the FILE TYPE and END FILE TYPE commands. The subcommand RECORD = rec 1 on the FILE TYPE command names the variable (rec) that will identify the record type for each line of data and its location on each line of data (1). This variable must occupy the same location on every line of data to be read and is not named on the DATA LIST statements.
This example uses blank spaces and line endings as delimiters. 2. 4, which presents the output produced by the LIST command. 3 except for the trailing zeros in exam1, exam2, and exam3. 00 Several important points about the FREE format: 1.
