Issue/Introduction

When browsing a CA Ideal application load module there are several pieces of metadata that can identify the source program as well as compile dates.

 

Environment

Component : CA Ideal

 

Resolution

Identifying the CA Ideal program load module

Using CICS transaction IPCV or IDLX (IDEA), issue the following command:

=> @I$SCF PGM=loadmodulename

(Note that the information can also be found via CICS DBUT transaction.)

This example shows the load module information for program PHBEDIT in system ARP, using this display:

 
Module offset (hex) Description Value in Module
8 Common CA Ideal load module coremark QQQQLMID
10 Module name (7char) with suffix U, R, S or P
Note: The suffix reflects the module type:
               R = reentrant (non-updateable)
               U = updateable
               S = symbol table
               P = reentrant part of panel
PHBEDITU
1B Ideal system name ARP
1E Source program name PHBEDIT
