Ü  CAT (Concatenate Two Strings)

·         The CAT operation concatenates the string specified in factor 2 to the end of the string specified in factor- 1 and places it in the result field.

·         Factor-2 must contain a string, and may contain the number of blanks to be inserted between the concatenated strings.

·         A ‘P’ operation extender indicates that the result field should be padded on the right with blanks after the concatenation occurs if the result field is longer than the result of the operation. If padding is not specified, only the leftmost part of the field is affected.
