Issue/Introduction

The allowed length for a type definition is maximum 32000.
Is there a solution to add a source of greater length, 32752 for example ?

Environment

Release : 18.1
Component : Endevor

Cause

Endevor cannot support full 32760 source element length (SEL) value.
The reason is that archive files and unload files contain plain base records prefixed with some more data.
Allowed SEL=32760, would cause records in archive/unload files to not fit into 32760 limit anymore.
Because of this limitation, it would not possible to directly add such source to Endevor and benefit from source compare

Resolution

The following options allows to reduce the LRECL before adding an element to Endevor:
1 - Use AMATERSE PACK/UNPACK (FB/1024)
2 - Use TSO XMIT/RECEIVE (FB/80)
In order to have the current source accessible directly from a PDS, create a processor that will write the source to PDS or PDSe VB/32756 processor output library.
