Error description

  • DFHAP0001 LIBRCICS An abend(code 0C4/AKEA)has occurred at offset
    X'000039F0' in module DFHEMSRE in the ROWCOL routine.
    DFHEMSR3 was attempting a loop through the fields entered into
    the last MAP that was received for the CEOS REPORT LIST panel.
    The number of commands is supposed to be passed to DFHEMSR3 in a
    commarea,however at the time of the dump that commarea is all
    binary zeroes, including the CAINLEN field, which should contain
    the length of the length of the area holding the list of
    commands pointed to by CAINPTR, which is based off of INPDATA.
    Routine NOTECOMD expects the input length of the data received
    to be a multiple of 4 but in this case it was x16, so the loop
    end condition was missed. The RECEIVE for the data entered on
    the CEOS list panel received was x'1E' bytes of data, but code
    relies on input data of multiples of 4 bytes. As this data was
    not on a 4 byte multiple, looping past the end of the data
    which caused the abend0c4.

    RCF outputs menu lists of terminals, reports, TD queues or jobs.
    The next transid is set to read the input screen, which can be
    action requests against any of the list items. The input
    consists of a possible series of 4 byte fields
    containing an SBA, a buffer address and an action code.
    The list processors (DFHEMST3, DFHEMSR3, DFHEMSP3 or DFHEMSJ3)
    run through the input 4 bytes at a time until the data length
    processed equals the data input. In this case the received TIOA
    did not contain data whose length was a multiple of 4 bytes
    resulting in the transaction looping off the end of the TIOA.

Problem conclusion

  • DFHEMSR3, DFHEMSP3, DFHEMSJ3, and DFHEMST3 have been altered to
    stop processing data when they encounter the end of the TIOA.
