Kay,

You could always write an assembler routine that does the GETSTG passing =
it
the length and it returning the pointer. Sorry but I missed why the use =
of
LENGTH and POINTER are so important.

Subject: 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.
