Problem summary

  • APAR NUMBER:  PJ41367
    PRODUCT:  z/TPF
    FUNCTIONAL AREA:  CAPTURE/RESTORE
    SHIPPED IN PUT:  10
    ABSTRACT:
    Keypoint FARF restore file addresses are displayed incorrectly
    in messages FRST0086W and FRST0087W
    PACKAGE CONTENTS:
    Source Segments:
    (C) base/rt/bxah.asm
    (C) base/rt/bxaz.asm
    (C) base/rt/bxbh.asm
    
    Object Only Binaries:
    None.
    
    Configuration Independent Binaries:
    (C) base/load/BXBH.so
    (C) base/obj/bxbh.o
    
    Support Files:
    base/lst/BXBH.map
    base/lst/bxbh.lst
    
    OTHER BINARIES TO BUILD: YES
    (C) <sys>/load/BXAH.so
    (C) <sys>/load/BXAZ.so
    (C) <sys>/obj/bxah.o
    (C) <sys>/obj/bxaz.o
    
    COMMENTS:
    When restoring keypoint records, if an error occur either
    message FRST0086W indicating the address of the record for
    which the error occurred, or FRST0087W indicating the address
    of the last record that was read correctly can result. In
    either case, the address of the keypoint record in question is
    a 4-byte FARF address, but the code in segment bxah.asm which
    displays the message attempts to format it as if it were an
    MCHR address. This results two bytes of zeroes being added at
    the start of the address, as well as an extraneous byte of zero
    inserted within the address itself.
    

Problem conclusion

  • SOLUTION:
    Segment bxah.asm has been changed to format the FRST0086W
    message correctly. Because message FRST0087W is sometimes
    issued for a legitimate MCHR address, segment bxaz.asm has been
    changed to issue the new message FRST0169W in its place.
    FRST0169W is formatted correctly for a 4-byte FARF address.
    COREQS: NO
    None.
    MIGRATION CONSIDERATIONS: YES
    Functional, automation, and operation changes:
    The FRST0086W now contains a 4-byte FARF address (8 characters)
    instead of a 7-byte (14 character) address.
    ZFRST KPT will now issue message FRST0169W for the last 4-byte
    FARF address that was previously read from tape correctly, in
    place of message FRST0087W.
