Re:how to get cobol ii dc cobol to access above-the-line storage?

Discussion created by ca.portal.admin on Aug 14, 2008
its been so long since i had to deal with this -

all of our DC COBOL program are loaded to to the non-xa non-reentrant program pool

they were link edited with AMODE ANY RMODE 24 (this does not seem right, but oh well)

one of these program is causing our pool 0 to go short

there are no funky assembler calls - getstg or any of that ilk ...

1) what can a "" normal"" cobol program do to use pool 0 storage - just allocation of working-storage?

2) what can I tell them to do to make this program access XA storage pools
- link edit as AMODE 31 RMODE ANY ?

the tasks that might cause this program to be invoked all appear to be location any

thanks,

"Hi Chris,

If you have FileAid or INSYNC on z/OS you can use it to change the RMODE =
and AMODE of any dc-cobol program, it is very simple and quick. You =
would not have to recompile everything to make use of XA storage. I =
didn't think there was any sites still using below the line storage for =
dc-cobol programs. How about it, anyone else still using 24 bit storage =
for dc-cobol programs?=20
