APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
Programs compiled in a release earlier than V4R4 that use the
NUMVAL or NUMVAL-C intrinsic function could get an incorrect
result of all zeros after migrating to release 7.2 or higher.

CORRECTION FOR APAR SE68532 :
-----------------------------
A PTF will be issued in release 7.2 and 7.3 so that the correct
NUMVAL and NUMVAL-C result is given for programs compiled prior
to V4R4.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR SE68532 :
--------------------------------
Recompile the program in release 7.2 or higher.


Activation Instructions


None.




Special Instructions


********************************************************************
THE FOLLOWING ARE SUPERSEDED SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS. IF THE SUPERSEDED

IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO FOLLOW THAT SPECIAL INSTRUCTION AGAIN.
********************************************************************

SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUPERSEDED PTF SI55961 :
=================================================

After applying this PTF, programs and modules that use the NUMVAL
intrinsic function and that were compiled with arithmetic option
*EXTEND31 or EXTEND63 on 7.2 for target release *CURRENT or V7R2M0
should be recompiled with the prerequiste compiler PTF applied
(SI53464 or a superceding PTF).  If you do not recompile, NUMVAL
could cause a MCHxxxx error at runtime.

recompiled after applying this ptf.
