Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: All users of HLASM for z/OS V1R13 who build  *
    *                 GOFF program objects.                        *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: This APAR introduces support for        *
    *                      Conditional Sequential V-type address   *
    *                      constants.                              *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION: Apply the PTF                                *
    ****************************************************************
    Conditional Sequential V-type constants allow a user to provide
    a list of external names which are resolved to a symbol by the
    Binder and used to build the Relocation Dictionary entries.
    The Binder then uses the first entry from the list that it
    finds in its search sequence to resolve the symbol.
    Conditional Sequential V-type constants require the GOFF HLASM
    option to be specified.
    Relocation Dictionary entries created from Conditional
    Sequential V-type constants require the z/OS V1R13 Binder.
    

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix

Comments

  • The High Level Assmbler for z/OS & z/VM & z/VSE Language
    Reference Release 6 (SC26-4940-05) will be modified to extend
    the syntax for V-type constants.
    The "Address constant-V" on page 156 will have the following
    boxed section added:
    
        ---- z/OS Only ----
        To specify a list of conditional external symbols to be
        resolved by the Binder, the following syntax is used:
            VCONST DC V(FUNCA:FUNCB:FUNCC)
        The Binder will attempt to resolve the external reference
        to FUNCA.  If FUNCA is not available then the Binder will
        attempt to resolve the reference to FUNCB.  If FUNCB is
        not available, then FUNC.  Finally, if FUNCC is not
        available then the external references are flagged as
        unresolved.
        ---- End of z/OS ----
    
    Additional keywords:
    ASMA035S Invalid delimiter
    ASMA044E Undefined symbol
    IEW2456E 9207 SYMBOL nnnnn UNRESOLVED.
    IEW2445I 9233 SYMBOL nnnnn IS AN UNRESOLVED MEMBER OF A
    CONDITIONAL ADCON CHAIN.
