Hi All,

I wrote a Small Macro in Rexx , I just planned to hide the code and i was trying to compile it with CPPL, as i need to use it as a Tso Command. Compilation was successfull . But while executing the command it says

"Illegal symbo found in the first line"

Can any one of you gie me a suggestion where it could be wrong .

Hi,

Iam not very familiar with REXX actually, but i wa trying to do something , i was successfull with the Code , it was working fine . But i want that one to be hided , so i went for compiling . As i need to use this Macro as a tso command , i compiled that with CPPL and i got the o/p on executing the second step in the compile part , i.e., IRXJCL. here i passed the parm "REXXL CPPL" . When I tried to use that o/p as tso command , i got the below error message

Code:

      4 +++  ?                                                       
      1 +++ CHANGE  EAGSTUB(DATE),EAGOBJ($DATE)                       
 IRX0013I Error running DATE, line 4: Invalid character in program   
***                                                                   


Fyi.,

In my first step i used REXXCOMP and my second step i used IRXJCL .Iam using the o/p of IRXJCL to invoke a tso command . Iam not sure of this .

Please let me know . where is the mistake

Can you show us the source for your CHANGE routine? I think there is something wrong with line 4.

why do You ask the gentleman to show the code ??
he said that he wants to hide it ,
and, who knows..., some of his colleagues might lurk thru the forums
and discover the sinful secrets behind of the script icon_biggrin.gif icon_biggrin.gif

You are right, Nayak should not divulge the secret code. But perhaps the problem can be reproduced in a smaller program that does not contain the secret ingredient.

And when I have such problems, trying to isolate the problem in a smaller program usually helps in problem determination.

Nayak, have you tried running the program with trace('r')?
