Subscribe

You can track all active APARs for this component.

APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Inefficient use/access of const vector datatypes in local scope
    as compared to global scope.
    

Local fix

  • N/A
    

Problem summary

  • PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    For local vector variables that are initialized by literals,
    the code generated is inefficient.  It loads and assigns each
    element on the stack, which could be improved by loading the
    whole vector literal once.
    
    USERS AFFECTED:
    User using bracelist initializers to initialize auto variables
    of vector type.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Local initialized vector variables are now saved and loaded
    from the contant area/TOC instead of the stack.
    

Temporary fix
