.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 code to create a generic parser which actually convert the above code in a .rpt file
into perl code and then finally the perl code could generate the report ...

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

All I can suggest is you search on CPAN for Oracle modules:

and see if there is an existing module that does what you want. Since I do not understand your question, I don't have any other suggestions. Maybe someone else will have a suggestion. If not, try posting on where there are more active and knowledgable perl people.

Hi Kevin!!!

I have searched over CPAN for any Oracle report module bu tdidnt get any proper parser...

I need to make it whole new...

Please suggest me how do I start ?

I will explain u something from the .rpt file......

You can see .declare section which is actually for declaring variables for field width and .define to define

macros but I am not able to understand how could I change it to perl code as nothing macro definition is there

in perl.....

Please look into the file which is actually a raw file to generate the Oracle report ...but I need to change the whole code

into perl
