Re: Causes of a DC273912 Message
"I thought that to have a version 2 of a DC-Cobol program you needed a
//CDMSL0002 DD statement pointing to your ver 2 load library, and if you
wanted a version 99 DC-Cobol you needed a //CDMSL0099 DD statement. You
do not need to specify NODYNAM on the version 1 sysgen definition, but
you will need to specify a version 2 and a version 99 sysgen definition
for the program.

What the NODYNAM specification does is prevents a search for a currently
loaded load module through the loadlist - so that for example let's say
you have loaded an ADS dialog from a load library, and there is a
dictionary higher up in the loadlist then DC loader will look at any all
dictionaries and load libraries that are ""higher up"" in the load list
sequence to see if there is a ""dynamic"" version of the load module
available. By specifying NODYNAM you prevent this non-essential
additional searching for programs that you only ever want to be loaded
from a specific location.

That's my understanding - if it's wrong I'd love to be corrected because
in the past I've made tuning decisions on the basis of this
understanding - cheers - Gary
