Does anyone recall when the OS PL/I compilers were in support?

You mean V2.3.0, the compiler that compiles, on Hercules, about 10 times faster than the new and shine Enterprise PL/I versions, and that also produces highly legible assembler listings, that allow even mere mortals to read the code?

Last time I worked with V2.3.0 in an official capability was in 2006-2007, when FinForce was in the process of moving to EPLI V3.5.0. I'm not sure if it was still supported at the time, but it was still being used.

No, I meant versions 1 and 2 of the optimizing compiler; the former was introduced sometime in the 1970s, I think. V2.3.0, IIRC, was MVS PL/I.

Well, this isn't the first time that I'm wrong icon_smile.gif

the compiler I have
Code:
5688-235 IBM PL/I for MVS & VM          Ver 1 Rel 1 Mod 1
in library
IEL.V1R1M1.SIELCOMP


the PL/I libraries
Code:
PLI.V2R3M0


maybe I am having a brain check ,
but IIRC the above pli is functionally equivalent to v2r3m0

Probably. Here is the reason that I asked:

Panvalet is being sunset here, with a deadline of 1Q2013. I recently got tossed a orphaned (i.e., no one knows who wrote it or will take responsibility for it) program. As is common in this shop, the program is composed of about a dozen source modules; the translator signatures indicate that the object modules are a jumble of OS PL/I V1, OS PL/I V2, and Assembler H (they somehow evaded the transition to Enterprise PL/I project that went on for about half a decade). The program was last link-edited in 1997; of course, any or all of the object modules could be much older.

Hello Akatsukami!
the PL/I I was quoting comes later than 2.3.0
