Looks like V5R3 enhanced SETDPAT instruction to increase maximum length of packed variable from 31 to 63. That's great, thanks, but, when I try to display a PKD(63,0) data pointer on V5R3 in OPM debugger, the OPM debugger dumps with MCH0601, "Space offset **** is outside current limit for object ****" DCL DTAPTR DATA AUTO; DCL DD ATTR AUTO CHAR(7); DCL DD BIG AUTO CHAR(32) INIT( X"123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890123F"); CPYBLA ATTR, X"03003F00000000"; SETDPADR DATA, BIG; SETDPAT DATA, ATTR; BRK "LOOK"; RTX *; and then STRDBG ... ADDBKP LOOK CALL ... DSPPGMVAR DATA then MCH0601 occurs. Work around?
