Enterprise cobol llinkage section cics addressing

Enterprise cobol llinkage section cics addressing

Enterprise cobol llinkage section cics addressing

(OP)
Migrating from os/vs cobol i encountered the following code
COMPUTE ETS-TOA-PTR = BLL-TS-PTR + 1057.                      
COMPUTE ETS-TIOA-PTR = BLL-TS-PTR + WS-QUE-ACTUAL.
Are these computations valid in enterprise cobol when updating a pointer ?   

RE: Enterprise cobol llinkage section cics addressing

How are the fields defined?

Regards, Jack.

ws-que-actual pic s9999 comp value +3050.
ets-tioa-ptr  pic s9(8) comp.
ets-toa-ptr  pic s9(8) comp.
bll-ts-ptr  pic s 9(8) comp.

RE: Enterprise cobol llinkage section cics addressing

The code, per se, is valid.  If the fields are actially memory pointers, it will probably work, but they should be defined as POINTER and modified with the SET verb.
