Error description

  • The following code produces an overflow condition running on
    Enterprise PL/I.
    
    SOS: PROC OPTIONS(MAIN);
    DCL S CHAR(5) INIT('2-590');
    DCL I BIN FIXED(31);
    I = S;
    END SOS;
    
     This raised the conversion condition on releases prior to
    Enterprise PL/I.

    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The OVERFLOW condition is raised when   *
    *                      converting a character string with the  *
    *                      value 2-590 to a fixed binary numeral.  *
    *                      The correct condition should have been  *
    *                      the CONVERSION condition.               *
    *                                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION: Apply the PTF for this APAR.                 *
    *                                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    A character field with value 2-590 was assigned to a fixed
    binary(31) field. The CONVERSION condition should have been
    raised for this conversion. Instead, the OVERFLOW condition was
    raised.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The PL/I run-time library has been modified to correctly raise
    the CONVERSION condition for this scenario.
