Legend
GA
OS level supported by the General Availability (GA) release of the compiler
(see notes 1 and 2)
X
OS level not supported by the compiler
OS level supported once the (linked) APAR is applied
(see note 2)

Notes

  1. Consult the product documentation for specific OS level prerequisites for installing and using the selected compiler. For example, the compiler may not install or function on the GA OS level; updates to the OS may be required before installing or using the selected compiler.
  2. While the GA level, or the first PTF providing the necessary APAR fix, will work on the given OS, it is best to apply the latest PTF (see the "Related information" links below).
