Cobol compile warning message with NOLAXPERF specified.
Article ID: 104000
Compiled program using the COBOL V6.2 compiler with RULES option turned on. It produced warning message which point out inefficient use of numeric data items in arithmetic operations. It also lists many PERFORM statements that don't go to the EXIT. The following message was present for several statements: **RULES(NOLAXPERF)** The receiving operand "CACHE-AREA-DEF-1 (GROUP)" in the "MOVE" statement was significantly longer than the sending operand "CACHE-AREA-TEMP (ALPHANUMERIC)". This will result in many padding bytes, which is inefficient if not intended.
