CICS; OS/390; z/OS; z/OS.e
Abstract: There is a potential exposure for data corruption or undetected loss of data when using the Additional Floating-Point (AFP) registers in programs which were compiled with certain versions of the Enterprise PL/I for z/OS or OS/390 / z/OS C/C++ compilers and which run in a CICS transaction environment. This flash describes the situation and provides information on applicable APARs. This flash has also been updated with information on a newly provided Load Module Analyzer Tool to help identify programs compiled to use the AFP registers.
