Portable Application Solutions Environment - PASE (5770-SS1 option 33)

PASE Utilities OBJECT_MODE changed to 64-bit

On IBM i 7.5, the default object mode of the following PASE utilities is 64-bit. On previous releases, the default object mode was 32-bit:

  • ar
  • as
  • dump
  • ld
  • lorder
  • nm
  • ranlib
  • rtl_enable
  • size
  • strip
If you use them for 32-bit objects, you need to do one of the following:
  • Choose the option -X32 or (-b32 for ld)
  • Set environment variable OBJECT_MODE to 32
If you use them for 64-bit objects, you no longer need to set object mode explicitly.
