I am in the migration of MVS to Enterprise Pl/i.

Currently in MVS version, we display the change version, compile time and copyright information in the load module by having dummy variables initialized with those information.

With E PL/i, we are not able to see the same in the load module. Is there any compile option or something I am missing for E PL/i?


Please provide me a solution

Sample:

Code:

%DCL COMP_TIME CHAR;                                                 
%DCL COPY_MSG  CHAR;                                                 
%COMP_TIME=''''||COMPILETIME||'''';                                   
%COPY_MSG ='''@   COPYRIGHT SAMPLE INC., 20' ||  SUBSTR(COMP_TIME,9,2) || '   @''';
DCL 1 AF01_TRIGGER,                                                   
      2 COMPDTE CHAR(20) INIT(COMP_TIME),                             
      2 LEVEL   CHAR(03) INIT('17 '           ),           
      2 FILL_2  CHAR(05) INIT(' VER:'         ),                     
      2 PGMNAME CHAR(08) INIT(' PGM1289'      ),                     
      2 FILL_0  CHAR(45) INIT(                                       
/*@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@*/
        COPY_MSG);

get the assembler listing for a simple hallo world program
see what gets generated and start from there

just guessing ...
e/PLI optimization might be more aggressive and discard all the unreferenced variables

Correct, but there is a compiler option to keep some of them, "STATIC(FULL)". Don't know in which version it was introduced, the oldest manual I have here if for EP V3R5 and here it was present.

Don't know if there is a way to keep unused AUTOMATIC variables, but if you change the init of one of the fields in your structure to an assignment, that should do the trick.

You guessing is correct... It flushed the unreferenced variables. .... Thanks a lot for your solution...
