Enterprise COBOL for z/OS, V6.2 documentation is refreshed today, to include the following enhancements:
- In V6.2 with the PTF for APAR PI91584 installed, add support for mixing copybooks from PDSE (or PDS) datasets and z/OS UNIX directories in a single compile:
- RULES option enhancement:
- In V6.2 with the PTF for APAR PI91585 installed, new suboptions OMITODOMIN | NOOMITODOMIN are added to the RULES option to control whether the compiler will issue warning messages for any OCCURS DEPENDING ON clauses that are missing integer-1 (the minimum number of occurrences).
- In V6.2 with the PTF for APAR PI91586 installed, new suboptions UNREF | NOUNREFALL | NOUNREFSOURCE are added to the RULES option to control whether the compiler will report unreferenced data items, and to control whether the reporting is done only for data items not declared in a copy member (NOUNREFSOURCE) or all data items (NOUNREFALL).
For details about RULES, see https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SS6SG3_6.2.0/com.ibm.cobol62.ent.doc/PGandLR/ui/up8010.html.
The data sheet and English PDF files are also refreshed to include the updates above (it may take up to 24 hours for the PDF files to be republished). You can find the latest files from the Enterprise COBOL for z/OS library page at http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg27036733.
