As Rob indicated, sometimes there are PTF's that will allow TGTRLS(*PRV) support. There were a few of these in V5R3 for V5R2 (SI13505, SI13508, and SI13509, by the way) that I found in one of Guy Vig's handouts from COMMON, but nothing was listed for V5R4 back-level to V5R3. Such PTF's are rarely included with Groups or HIPERs but, instead, have to be ordered individually. Anyway, I searched on the V5R4 PTF's for TGTRLS(*PRV) but came up empty. Doesn't mean there weren't any, just that I could not find them.

Once Bruce Vining gets on, he may have knowledge of the necessary PTF's, if any exist.

Thanks for your reply Rob
I had just tried saving to a previous release, with the same results, but
did not know if it was because of a missing ptf
However, I just found out that the v5r3 box will be upgraded sometime in
December. Knowing the users though, that maybe sometime eve as they have
already postponed the upgrade from November.
Ah well, its the users who want this program, so when I tell them that it
wont be available until after the upgrade, they may change their tune

If you can save it to a previous release then you may be in luck. Let me

test that for you on 6.1 by compiling down to 5.3...
Nope
300- CALLSUBR TEST
* CPF0884 30 System command CALLSUBR does not exist for previous
release.
400-
500- SUBR TEST
* CPF0884 30 System command SUBR does not exist for previous release.
600- DSPJOB
700- ENDSUBR
* CPF0884 30 System command ENDSUBR does not exist for previous
release.


What this tells you is that no amount of ptf's for 5.3 will get you
there.

Don't rewrite - upgrade instead.

Alan,

AFAIK, the answer is no. We have V5R3 in our shop, are current on PTFs
and the CL compiler does not allow subs (pity).

The use of subroutines in CLP first became available in V5r4
Does anyone know if this was made available (via ptf or patch of some
description) back to V5r3?

The reason is that I have a program on our V5r4 system that uses
subroutines that I need to copy over to the V5r3 system, otherwise I
will
have to rewrite this program (and it will be messy)

Any help would be much appreciated

Thanks in advance
