0000781: Support individual conversion of element data on byte and record interface
To use the format.element() on the record interface with Cobol a decimal string representing a number or float must be converted to a valid picture reprasentation of a Cobol datatype to work with.

Also string must be collapsed and other kind of conversions are useful.

Add new functions for read and write, which accepts a conversion string.

fcbreadx("type.string(colaps)",ptr,-1,0,pfFil) == FCBLOCX

The X stands for ecxtented and a addtional conversion string must be provided.

No tags attached.

To add the conversion string to each fcbread/write or FCRPUT/GET/LOC to open, run and close the converter for one element is inperformant.

We will add 2 new functions to open and close a converter. And the corresponding handle must be given to the corresponding fcbreadx/writex or FCRGETX/LOCX/PUTX functions like i the sample below.

Add new function to FLUC byte (fcbopenv, fcbclosev, fcbreadv, fcbwritev) and record interface (FCROPNV, FCRCLSV, FCRGETV, FCRLOCV, FCRPUTV) which provides/acceptes a new element data conversion handle.

With this conversion handel you can overwrite if format.element() the default conversion module to read from or write neutral FLAM5 element data types in a specific representation to the application memory.

This can be used to collapse strings or to read a XML element containing a number as 64 bit integer value.
