APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • This APAR is to correct the problem documented in FIN APAR
    PK95916. This APAR will also address a problem USING FUNCTION
    LENGTH that results in IGYRC5108-U with last phase being
    IGYPMOVE.
    

Local fix

  • Use LENGTH OF instead of FUNCTION LENGTH as a bypass.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: Users of Enterprise COBOL V4 with programs   *
    *                 that have one or both of the following:      *
    *                 1. Arithmetic expressions involving a        *
    *                 numeric DISPLAY operand (zoned decimal) with *
    *                 multiply and FUNCTION LENGTH() following the *
    *                 multiplication operator.                     *
    *                 2. Intrinsic function used in reference      *
    *                 modification of operands of INITIALIZE,      *
    *                 XML PARSE and SEARCH verbs.                  *
    *                                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: 1. Compiler abort or incorrect output.  *
    *                      IF the compiler aborts, the message is  *
    *                      IGYRC5108-U with a S0C7 or S0C4.        *
    *                      2. Run-time abend ABEND=S0C7 or         *
    *                      compiler abort IGYRC5108-U              *
    *                      IF the compiler aborts, the message is  *
    *                      IGYRC5108-U with a S0C1.                *
    *                                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION: Apply the provided PTF.                      *
    *                                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    1. The COBOL compiler tried to calculate the value of the
    expression at compile time because it incorrectly determined
    that both operands were constants.
    2. The Compiler was not properly saving information about
    intrinsic function and reference-modification in the statement,
    so the runtime tried to use nonexistent function information or
    the compiler backend aborted with missing information.
    

Problem conclusion

  • 1. The COBOL compiler is changed to correctly check that both
    operands of a multiply operation are constants when the data
    types are external decimal.
    2. The compiler is changed to properly save information about
    both the intrinsic function and the reference-modification for
    INITIALIZE, XML PARSE and SEARCH statements.
