APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Viewing Program details for a COBOL program, choosing View dead
    code from the Actions pulldown, a view of the source with
    highlighted dead code is displayed, but at least one of the
    highlighted lines marked as dead code is actually reachable.
    

Local fix

  • none known
    

Problem summary

  • When a recursive PERFORM range is nested within a
    scope-delimited statement in the paragraph range being
    PERFORMed, the scope-delimited statement is only evaluated ONCE
    to see if its own range end can be reached.  Multiple
    references to the paragraph are not re-evaluated.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Multiple references to a recursively PERFORMed range will be
    re-evaluated each time it is invoked, as somewhere in the
    2nd-to-nth references it may be, in fact, reachable.
    

Temporary fix
