    ****************************************************************
    GDDM supplies a utility, ADMUIGF, which will convert ADMGDF
    files to the GIF format.
    
    The process uses a compression routine which requires the use of
    pair of tables. The first is used to holds pointers to data
    held in the second.
    
    A scanning routine is used to look for a target within the
    "Data" table, via the addresses held in "Pointer" table. The
    starting index of the "Pointer" table is a calculated value,
    setting it any point within the range of that table. The search
    does not stop until a match is made or a ZERO value is found in
    the "Pointer" table.
    
    During the scan a test is made of the "Pointer" table index.
    When it reaches its maximum value it is reset to ZERO, a
    location outside the range of the table. The address from this
    erroneous entry will be invalid and any attempt to use it will
    possibly led to an 0C4 abend.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The scanning code has been amended to reset the index to a valid
    value, within the scope of the "Pointer" table.
