    ****************************************************************
    The compiler generated instructions added for compiled-in hooks
    changed the value in Register 1 but the code following the hook
    code assumed that Register 1 had not been changed.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The COBOL compiler is changed to generate code that does not
    use Register 1 across the TEST(HOOK) compiled-in hook code.
    

Temporary fix
