Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: All users of  the IBM Automatic Binary       *
    *                 Optimizer (ABO) v1.3 with input modules      *
    *                 compiled from COBOL source containing the    *
    *                 SORT or MERGE statements.                    *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: In some rare instances the ABO          *
    *                      optimized binary may abend in SORT      *
    *                      with abend code U4036 and reason code   *
    *                      6. The abend may occur during           *
    *                      execution of a binary which was         *
    *                      optimized from an input module that     *
    *                      was originally compiled from COBOL      *
    *                      source that contained either a SORT or  *
    *                      MERGE statement. The abend is more      *
    *                      likely to occur in COBOL programs that  *
    *                      sort or merge large amounts of data.    *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION: Apply provided service                       *
    ****************************************************************
    ABO was modified such that these types of optimized modules no
    longer abend.
    

Problem conclusion

  • These types of  ABO optimized modules now execute successfully.
