-----Original Message----- From: cobol400-l-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:cobol400-l-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Michael Rosinger Sent: Thursday, December 14, 2006 11:40 AM To: cobol400-l@xxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [COBOL400-L] the preferred way to force a program abend on iSeries? List, Another newbie question. In the mainframe world, if your application program detects a condition that it cannot handle it (usually) will force an abend. There are many ways to do this. One common method for doing this is to call a non-existent program with a self-documenting name like "DUMPME" or "ABORT". In the iSeries world, I understand that if your application calls a program that it can't find, it will display a message on the operator console that requires a response. What is the preferred way to handle a program-induced abend? Can I/should I avoid/suppress an operator response? Is there an API that can be called from COBOL to force an abnormal end (and get a full dump) but won't require an operator response? Your suggestions and thoughts on this. As always TIA! -- Regards, Michael Rosinger Systems Programmer / DBA Computer Credit, Inc. 640 West Fourth Street Winston-Salem, NC 27101 336-761-1524 m rosinger at cciws dot com
