.define lock_tables

lock table booking_table, booking_hazmat, custdata2, edit_table,

booking_rates, printer_table in share update mode


.define get_input

select passkey, '//FAX(fax=' || passkey1, passkey2,

passkey3, passkey4, printer_name

into input_booking_seq, fax_header, file_no,

input_print_rates, myNoteId, printer_name

from edit_table

where edit_table.tag = 'BOOKING'

and edit_table.key = 'PRINT'

and edit_table.user_id = user


.define get_user_info

select user_location,user_name, user_company, &fax_header || ';style=' || letterhead,

fax_printer, nvl(fax_yn,'N')

into user_location, user_name, user_company, fax_header, fax_printer, fax_yn

from security_header

where user_id = lower(substr(user,5,10))


.define get_fax_printer

select &fax_header || ';print = Confirm;printer = ' || &fax_printer || ')'

into fax_header

from dual


.define printMsg

.execute formatMsg

.if "&myNote = 'N/A' " then skipMyNote

.print myNote


.if "&myNoteExt = 'N/A' " then skipMyNoteExt

.print myNoteExt


.add line_count line_count 9


.execute lock_tables

.execute get_input

.execute printer_controls

.execute get_top

.execute get_user_info

.execute get_user_office

.rem --------- this section is added to print bookings by file -------

.ifnull file_no skip_by_file

.report get_lots file_loop

.goto skip_to_end


.rem ------------------------------------------------------------------

.if "&fcl_lcl = 'F' " then ck_fcl

.execute adjust_letterhead_lcl

.goto skip_over_fcl


.execute adjust_letterhead_fcl


.if "&fax_yn = 'N' " then skip_confirm

.execute get_fax_printer

.goto skip_to_booking


.execute set_no_confirm





I need to write the code for a generic parser which will actually convert the above code in a .rpt file into perl code and then finally the perl code would generate the report ...


Please help me out for this to process and suggest me if there is any parser module available for that
