Re: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 anyone provide a way to convert the pointer to a displayable
format? Or better yet, some sample code that uses the pointer parameter
for ""get scratch""?

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

Re: Get storage
"I think if you get the storage allocated to the linkage section area,
you can then use that same linkage areas as the receiving location of
the get scratch.

""The GET SCRATCH statement obtains a scratch record and places it in a
storage area
associated with the issuing program. The storage area must already be
allocated to the
requesting task; no implicit GET STORAGE function is performed during
the GET
SCRATCH operation.""

What are you planning on using the pointer for? It is an address of an
address, typically used when calling assembler programs. I think that
perhaps you just want the storage ID and don't really need the pointer.
