Is there any way we can get the compiler messages (warnings, information msg etc) for the current version of program in endevor. The program was uploaded into endevor long back (say 1 year), is there any way find out that compiler output?

1. If you have ABENDAID LISTING information for the programs moved to Endevor in your shop, you can see them.
2. Is there any restriction in your shop that prevents to recompile the same version and see the compiler output? (in case of test or dev environment)
I can recompile. the problem is i have hundreds of programs and i am (re)-compiling all those programs under new compiler. i just want to make sure the warning messages i am getting under the new compiler are the same as i got it in old compiler. if they are same, i can leave those messages, otherwise i need to take some action on those messages. so it would be great if i found those information(old compiler messages) handy somewhere.
is there any way we can check it in endevor footprint? (i am not familiar with footprint:) )

The only reason warning messages are produced is that the coder was too lazy to define/use working-storage properly.
To allow programs with warning messages into production only means
someday someone else must answer the phone late some night to correct a problem that occurred
because someone changed something and did not heed the warning messages
or the compiler is upgraded and what 'used to work', suddenly does not.
Code with warning messages, IMUO, should be corrected so that there are no warning messages from the compiler.
