Reply with quote

Hi,

A user has compiled a source code ( cobol pgm ) twice in a changeman. Is it possible to know whether the user had made any changes to the program after the first compilation.

If we can get the version of the loadmodule produced during the two compilation then the lenght of the load module can prove whether the source code was changed.

Is there any way to know if there is any change in the program which was compiled twice in a changeman.

Thanks for the help.

you are deluding yourself. unless you can decode assembler in your head,
the only thing that you can see is two different compile dates.

if changeman does not have source versioning, then that is another reason to buy a more sophisticated library management system, like endevor.

Very possibly, BUT- Not necessarily. . .

ChangeMan does provide you different versions for different compiles. Once you are at (posted only for illustration)
Code:
 ------------------------- STAGE: aaaa00xxxx COMPONENTS ----- Row 1 to 21 of 21
 COMMAND ===>                                                  SCROLL ===> CSR 
      NAME   TYPE  STATUS      CHANGED         PROCNAME   ID     REQUEST       
 __ A234567 SRB  ACTIVE    20100118  065538   CMNCOBOL E123456                 
 __ A1234567 SRB  ACTIVE    20101005  065102   CMNCOBOL E123456                 
 __ CCBABCDE CPY  ACTIVE    20100310  022002           
.
.
go to the component of your interest and type-in "VC" in front of it. This will give you list of all the versions availble . Of course, keeping history of such versions is a choice made by the site-admins, however, usually site keeps some versions of programs and the how-many-of-them would vary shop to shop.
