Error description

  • Using OPT(FULL) and THREAD option the compiler loops on
    statement that contains RANDOM.
    
    
    With NOOPT the following compiler messages are received:
    
    IGYAS5125-U   The compilation was terminated due to a compiler
    error in phase id:  "IGYCASM1".
    
    IGYAS5100-U   A register resolution failure occurred.
    

Local fix

  • Compile with NOTHREAD

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Loop during compile.                    *
    *                                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION: Apply the provided PTF.                      *
    ****************************************************************
    When compiling with the THREAD compiler option, the code to call
    the internal lock/unlock for FUNCTION RANDOM was incorrect.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The COBOL compiler is changed to correctly call the internal
    LOCK/RELEASE.
