XMIT-format File Viewers
Most of the files on the CBT Tape are packaged in zipped XMIT format. XMIT-format is based on IBM's EBCDIC character set and not on the more universal ASCII character set. Most PC files are based on the ASCII character set. On z/OS, XMIT-format files are expanded using the TSO RECEIVE command. On z/OS systems, there is HELP for using the RECEIVE command in SYS1.HELP.
What if you don't have a z/OS system to view the CBT Tape files that are in XMIT format (after they have been unzipped)? There are solutions for this. Several tools are available, which can view XMIT-format files on other platforms, such as Windows. This makes it possible to view CBT Tape files (and translate text files from EBCDIC to ASCII) when you don't have a z/OS system available. Several of these PC-based XMIT-file viewing tools are listed below, and can be downloaded from this screen. For files marked to come from the CBT Tape, additional documentation can be obtained by looking at the respective CBT Tape file itself.
Neal Johnston-Ward's Xmit-Manager program is available under a separate screen. There is a 64-bit version and a 32-bit version available there.
