Installation Information

THIS SECTION CONTAINS CHANGES TO THE PRODUCT'S PROGRAM DIRECTORY. 3. 97/11/21 SECTION OF PROG. DIRECTORY REFERENCED: SECTION 7.1.1 PG 29 Do not use the 3800 font library SYS1.FONTLIB as input for the flip index. The program directory states that you can use the same font library concatenantion for the flip index that is used for PSF/MVS. That is not correct. Do not use libraries that contain 3800 fonts. Message: Assertion failed: index < lenght , file:'JLS.AFPTK.CPP(ATXBUFF) line 325 EDC6006E The raise() function was issued for the signal SIGABRT. maybe issued if the 3800 fonts SYS1.FONTLIB is included in the FLIP index. 2. 97/10/09 If you receive compile errors trying to run the COBOL IVP program (ATXCBTST), modify line 456 (MOVE 'N10' TO TERMS-IN.) and line 776 (MOVE 'TOTAL DUE' TO AFP-CHARACTER -STRING.) to change the single quotes to double quotes. 1. 97/07/28 The MVS program directory describes how to run FLIP (ATXFLMVS) on p 29. The first ordered list item talks about the FONTLIBO DD statement being required for concatenated font librarie. This bullet should be a paragraph instead, outside of the list, because FONTLIBO is ALWAYS required when FLIP is run, even if it is the same data set as the font library itself. On p 30, the instructions need to be modified (step 3) to state that FONTLIBO is always required. Finally, in the ATXFLIP JCL member, return code 36 should be updated to state that this RC may also be received if the FONTLIBO DD statement is missing or the data set cannot be written to.


Documentation Changes

THIS SECTION OUTLINES MAJOR ERRORS IN THE PRODUCT'S PUBLISHED DOCUMENTATION. 2. 97/10/01 The Program Directory for AFP Toolbox for MVS, Chapter 5.2.3 Programming Requirements The 4th bullet is incorrect. *IBM COBOL for MVS Compiler (5688-197) Version 1 Release 5 or higher Should read: *IBM COBOL for MVS Compiler (5688-197) Version 1 Release 2 or higher 1. 97/01/21 Text Orientations documentedunder the SetTextOrientation call in the C chapter and C++ chapters are incorrect. They should be: - I0B90_TO - I0B270_TO - I90B180_TO - I90B0_TO - I180B270_TO - I180B90_TO - I270B0_TO - I270B180_TO


General Information

THIS SECTION CONTAINS GENERAL INFORMATION, I.E. SYSGEN HINTS/TIPS. 7. 97/11/18 The IVP may fail with messages concerning the defining of resources. Example: AFPDEFINEFONT call failed with return code -14. The last step of the IVP may fail with a CBLWriteString failed with return code 15. Apply apar pq07142 ptf uq08195 on volid 9708. 6. 97/01/21 COBOL sample ATXCBSAM uses ATXSLOGO which is an AFP page segment containing IOCA image. To print the output, you must send the output to a printer that supports IOCA image. You can also remove the CBLInclPseg from the sample program, or change the name of the segment that is included to one that will print on your system. 5. 97/01/21 ITEM DELETED 97/02/20 4. 97/01/21 Toolbox on MVS does not support double byte fonts. 3. 97/01/21 Toolbox on MVS cannot read the DCFINDEX member created by the Document Composition Facility (DCF) licensed program, or the AFPINDEX member created by the AFP API. 2. 97/01/21 The AFPWriteString function writes SIA (Set Intercharacter Adjust) PTOCA text control when the intercharacter increment value is greater than 0. Old printers like the d/t3820 and d/t3800-3 will issue an error for the SIA and will not print the page. 1. 97/01/21 You cannot print the output from the C++ sample output with PSF/MVS directly. You can route it to PSF for AIX or use the modified AFRREBLK program which supports fixed block records. The modified AFRREBLK is available on the IBM Printing Systems Web site: (ftp.software.ibm.com/printers) in /printers/products/toolbox/mvs
