object.WRQUseBlockReads = Value

Works with


Data type




Returns (first syntax line) or specifies (second syntax line) whether VAXLINK2, the VMS host transfer program, is forced to read files in block mode rather than record mode. For certain files in non-standard formats, this transfers every byte in the file without regard to record lengths or carriage controls. Setting this property to True is equivalent to using rcImage as the TransferType (with WRQReceiveFile), but omitting the image header information.

This property is only relevant for transfers from VMS hosts (that is, when WRQHostSystem is set to rcVMS).

This property is relevant only for transfers that use the WRQ/Reflection protocol.


The default value is False.
