    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Program goes into a loop when a PL/I    *
    *                      batch program uses an HFS file for      *

    *                                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    A PL/I batch program goes into a loop when processing a GET
    statement for an HFS file. The HFS file is declared as stream
    input with no RECSIZE environment option specified.
    

Problem conclusion

  • When an HFS file is declared with no RECSIZE environment option
    specified and is opened for stream input, the PL/I library did
    not set a default record size value correctly. The problem has
    now been corrected.
