Re:Mulitasking & DC-COBOL Programs

Discussion created by ca.portal.admin on Nov 21, 2006
Hello All:

While going through an SVC Dump I noticed that a DC-COBOL Program was
running in SYSTEM Mode in a multitasking environment. I checked the
system generation and all of the DC-COBOL programs were defined with
MPMODE SYSTEM. Probably because whoever defined these programs copied
an existing definition way before multitasking was implemented?

These programs are not causing any problems that we are aware of but I
am pretty sure that DC-COBOL programs should not be running in SYSTEM
MODE. I think that they should be defined with MPMODE ANY?

Any other Multitasking Sites out there? Can you check your DC-COBOL
programs to see what MPMODE they are running in?

Re: Lower-case in OCF
"Kay,
Are you getting into the CV via CICS or a direct connect to IDMS via
VTAM? In both of them there is a parm in the terminal definition that
will force all characters into upper case.

Although I don't remember the exact syntax, I know in CICS you can issue
a CEMT S TERM(your_termid) ?something? to set the terminal to mixed
case.

In IDMS you can use the DCUF SET CASE UPPER/UPLOW command. I am not sure
if the IDMS command over-rides the CICS setting.

Hope this helps.
