Error description

  • You are running CICS transaction server 5.1, using CEDF to walk
    through your 64 bit program.   The offset  into the program
    where the command is being executed is incorrect on the
    display.  the OFFSET displayed ends in an ODD number which can
    never be valid.   Here is an example of this from the CEDF
    panel:
        OFFSET:X'000415'       LINE:                  EIBFN=X'0202

    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When using EDF to debug an AMODE 64 assembler program the EXEC
    CICS commands offset within the program are shown to be one byte
    lower than the actual offset location.
    

Problem conclusion

  • DFHEDFX loads the program address location and has been updated
    to turn off the least significant bit (which indicates its a
    64bit program).  This ensures the offset calculations within EDF
    are correct.
