f5to6 converts a JAM 5 form into the format of a JAM 7 screen. All JAM 5 fields on the form will be converted into JAM 7 widgets.

In addition to other minor improvements, the improved f5to6 has the new flag of "-p", which results in more accurate PI positioning. This new f5to6 is available with JAM 7.35. To upgrade to JAM 7.35, please contact Prolifics Technical Support.

f5to6 [-v<num>] [-g<c>] [-s<c>] [-kflbcdmp5] <input file> <output file>
-v<num> Set verbosity level. Default: 1.
