Error description

  • --- Features ---
    
    -Add support for CICS/TS 5.1 Beta 5.
    
     Support is added for CICS TS 5.1 beta 5. Support is only
     provided for base CICS functions, i.e. those functions which
     were available in CICS TS 4.2. Support is not guaranteed for
     new functions within CICS TS 5.1.

    -EXEC CICS FREEMAIN receives an AEIP abend when Debug Tool
     attempts to free the non-LE CEEPCB_DBGINFO storage during
     termination.
     (PM69731 at 10.1)
    
    -ABENDS0C1 in EQA0XCUS + X'2BD8' when Debug Tool tried to call
     the PLI runtime at enclave termination, but it had already
     been released.
     (PM73743 at 11.1)
    
    -Square bracket is not recognized in C with full-screen-mode.
     Codepage 037 is specified through EQAOPTS.

    -Unable to LIST or MONITOR a packed decimal in C
     (PM74206 at 12.1)
    
    -Debug DTCN profiles being bypassed or beaten by older equal
     qualified profiles.
     (PM74793 at 11.1)
    
    -DTCD abending when trying to delete DTCN profiles.
     (PM74981 at 11.1)
    
    -MONITOR(M) and LIST(L) prefix commands do not display all the
     variables in the MONITOR window when COBOL and using invalid
     indices.
     (PM75750 at 11.1)
    
    -PROG755 with SET AUTOMON ON and SET DBCS ON in CICS COBOL
     debug session.
     (PM76344 at 11.1)
    
    -When Debug Tool Utilities is invoked from a CLIST, message
     "ISPD113 Invalid panel" is received when attempting to exit
     from the main Debug Tool panel.

    This APAR also contains the service included in
    PM75311/UK83048:
    
    -Slow response or performance issue with Debug Tool is caused
     by a loop in CEEVGUNO, due to a DSA pointing back to itself.
     (PM72337 at 11.1)
    
    -PM68326 against TIM contains solution for PF12 scenario (PF12
     out of TIM does not execute
     RACROUTE REQUEST=VERIFY,ENVIR=DELETE).
     This APAR contains the solution for PF3 to exit and when the
     session times out.
     (PM73626 at 11.1)
    
    -Abend AICA program check occurs in EQA10XSC when using DTSC
     transaction. DTSC blocks are corrupted.
     (PM75116 at 11.1)
