DFSORT/SYNCSORT to include spaces, insert fixed strings and refortmat the records using OUTREC

Continuing with the Previous SORT examples, this section will have some SORT features to understand the INREC/OUTREC features and how they work.
In the following sort example, i am trying to insert spaces and insert fixed string in the input file and format the output record.
Since , we are trying to build the record, ie, manipulate the entire record structure here and there, we will go with OUTREC BUILD option. This gives us complete control over the record structure. We can pick up any record from any position and place it anywhere as per the requirement.
Here goes my input file.
----+----1----+----2----+----3----+-

As we see here, OUTREC parameter, '1:1,4' tells sort to :Take record of length 4 bytes starting from 1st column and  place it in 1st column of the output file.
5:2X will put 2 byte of spaces.  X indicate spaces to be included. When we use 3X, that means 3 spaces to be put.
8:C'TST'   will tell sort to put the string 'TST' from 8th byte of the output record.
13:5,7 Will instruct sort to: Take the record of length 7 bytes from 5th column of the input file and put from 13th column in the output file.
Now match the output, and we can see the result!
A Point to remember : For INREC and OUTREC we can use FIELDS or BUILD. For OUTFIL , we can use  OUTREC or BUILD

2. Get the HEX Values using SORT
Using the Same input file, will use the OUTFIL OUTREC command to print the hex values
   ............... same as above JCL......
  SORT FIELDS=COPY                  
  OUTFIL OUTREC=(1:1,4,TRAN=HEX)    
//*                                
Output will look like:
----+----1--
