RE: Creating HTML output from Informix 4GL Reports

Posted By: Mukherjee, Arindam
Date: Thursday, 17 May 2007, at 10:08 a.m.


Thanks for the info. I will try out in this manner.
Meantime,I came across one open-source called "Aubit 4Gl" which can be
used as a plug-in to already installed Informix 4GL. This 4Gl have
facilities to convert Informix 4GL reports to a specified type using
some pre-defined layouts as visible from the following syntax :

FINISH REPORT report-name CONVERTING TO "filename" AS "type" [ USING
"layout" ]

However it says that "type" can be any one of the conversions available
on the system and these are in $AUBITDIR/lib called
libLOGREPPROC_*.[so/dll]. As per the documentation on an average system
you may have :

Does anyone who already used/using "Aubit 4GL" confirm whether there are
any libraries available for HTML file types ?

Thanks in advance !!!

We had some similar output that we needed to make available on internal
web sites. We saved the 4gl output as files and then wrote a Perl script
to present the reports to the web. The script simply changes all
control-L page breaks to "HTML page breaks" and wraps each page in <PRE>
tags. It isn't elegant but it is very effective and required very little
work to write and it was free.

I'd suspect you could also write a generic Perl formatting program to
re-format certain/most of your reports for HTML presentation quickly,
without changing the 4gl reports themselves. It wouldn't be as visually
pleasing as 're-writes' but it would be much faster.

On the other hand, there are certainly for-pay solutions to what you are
trying to do.

Subject: Creating HTML output from Informix 4GL Reports [9167]

Hi All:

I am working with Informix 4GL application which have lots of automated
reports going out to customers. Presently, the report formats are plain
character-based. My objective is to create reports in HTML formats using

Informix 4GL report functionality. I have done that for one report by
printing all HTML tags, colors etc in the 4GL report in different lines
and creating a report with "html" extension. This html file can then be
opened in any web browser for viewing. But this involves lot of coding
from the developer's perspective. So I am looking forward for any kind
of generic methodology/automated tool available which can be used along
with my existing Informix 4GL on Solaris OS and that will help me to
convert the existing Informix 4GL reports to create HTML outputs with
minimum code changes.
