Get storage

Discussion created by ca.portal.admin on Jul 22, 2009
Thanks to Tommy's and Peter's suggestion, I am now getting a clean compile.=
But I don't seem to be getting a valid pointer back at run time. Can any=
one provide a way to convert the pointer to a displayable format? Or bette=
r yet, some sample code that uses the pointer parameter for ""get scratch""?

I wish the storage interface had separate ""get"" and ""put"" commands, like th=
e scratch and queue interfaces do. I am having some difficulty determining=
which parameters apply to which situation.

Re: Get storage
"I was wrong about getting a clean compile. When I looked at the code generated by the pre-compiler (which I should have done earlier), there was no reference to the length or pointer fields. And lo and behold, there were some warning (not error) messages saying that these parameters were not valid. No wonder my pointer wasn't working - it hadn't been set by the ""get storage"" command, so contained garbage.

Apparently you really can't use these parameters with COBOL LE. Bummer.
