Compaq Cobol COBOLAE1027ECO2 V2.7 Compilers Alpha ECO Summary
TITLE: Compaq Cobol COBOLAE1027ECO2 V2.7 Compilers Alpha ECO Summary
NOTE:  An OpenVMS saveset or PCSI installation file is stored
       on the Internet in a self-expanding compressed file.
       For OpenVMS savesets, the name of the compressed saveset
       file will be kit_name.a-dcx_vaxexe for OpenVMS VAX or
       kit_name.a-dcx_axpexe for OpenVMS Alpha. Once the OpenVMS
       saveset is copied to your system, expand the compressed
       saveset by typing RUN kitname.dcx_vaxexe or kitname.dcx_alpexe.
       For PCSI files, once the PCSI file is copied to your system,
       rename the PCSI file to kitname.pcsi-dcx_axpexe or
       kitname.pcsi-dcx_vaxexe, then it can be expanded by typing
       RUN kitname.pcsi-dcx_axpexe or kitname.pcsi-dcx_vaxexe.  The
       resultant file will be the PCSI installation file which can be
       used to install the ECO.

Problems Addressed In COBOLAE1027ECO2:

  o  COBRTL V2.7 PCSI kit cannot install on OpenVMS V7.1-1H2.

  o  RECACTUSE with USE Procedures in a program with both
     DBMS and files - RTL

  o  DML WHERE with REDEFINES - compiler with /OPT=LEVEL=1
     and higher

  o  RECACTUSE with multiple conditions in a USE FOR 
     DB-EXCEPTION - compiler

  o  DML verb in USE FOR DB-EXCEPTION should issue -E- 
     diagnostic - compiler

  o  REDEFINES with overlapping MOVE for /OPT=LEVEL=3 
     and higher - compiler

  o  /CHECK=BOUNDS for non-constant length of a reference
     modification - compiler

     main procedure - compiler


A system reboot is not necessary.

It is recommended that you read the Compaq COBOL Release Notes for V2.7
and the Release Notes for this kit before installing this ECO kit.

In advance the Savesets should be copied or downloaded to the SYS$UPDATE
directory on your OpenVMS Alpha system.

The file DEC-AXPVMS-COBOL-V0207-1262-1.PCSI contains the updated compiler
COBOL.EXE V2.7-1262 for OpenVMS Alpha including Version 6.2 and higher.
The file DEC-AXPVMS-COBRTL-V0207-641B-1.PCSI contains the updated COBOL 
Run-Time Library for OpenVMS Alpha versions from version 6,2 up to but 
not including version 7.1-2. The file DEC-AXPVMS-COBRTL-V0207-641B-1.PCSI
contains the updated COBOL Run-Time Library for OpenVMS Alpha versions 
7.1-2 and higher. 

Log into a privileged account and set default to SYS$UPDATE, and install 
this kit using first the DCL command BACKUP/SELECT and then the DCL 
command PRODUCT INSTALL commands at the DCL prompt as indicated below:

For all OpenVMS Alpha systems Version 6.2 and higher:


For those OpenVMS Alpha systems including from Version 6.2 up to but not including
Version 7.1-2:


For those OpenVMS Alpha systems including Version 7.1-2 and higher:


For all OpenVMS Alpha systems Version 6.2 and higher:


Note: The COBOL compiler product should be installed after installing the COBRTL
because the compiler product contains the updated COBOL$IVP test kit which will
be run following the successful installation of the compiler.

No special command is needed to restart the product.
