Error description

  • After translating and compiling a COBOL program with the
    COBOL3 CICS translator parameter, an abendasra may occur in the
    DLZNUCA1 module.  Register 2 will hold a value retrieved from
    lowcore.  It turns out that the COBOL3 translator option left
    out an INITIALIZATION CALL.  The COBOL2 translator statement
    will insert this call at the start of the Procedure Division
    of the application.  The COBOL3 translator option also needs to
    include this call for CICS COBOL programs that perform DL/I
    requests.

    ****************************************************************
    Specifying the COBOL3 option to the CICS translator instructs it
    to, among other things, omit the generation of a DL/I
    INITIALIZATION call at the beginning of the COBOL program being
    translated. DL/I on VSE requires this call in order to allocate
    basic DL/I control blocks.
    Keywords: DLI COBOL2 ANSI85
    

Problem conclusion

  • The CICS translator has been changed to always generate an
    INITIALIZATION call for COBOL DL/I programs.
