PL1 Compilation error

Postby hdevang4u » Fri Mar 15, 2013 2:46 am

Hi,

I am compiling a PL1 program using LMS on our mainframe system. I am getting the following error in the LINKEDIT step.

"IEW2640E 4B05 ONE OR MORE EXTERNAL NAMES EXCEED THE LENGTH LIMITATIONS OF THE TARGET FORMAT."

Compilation job is failing with return code=0008 in the LINKEDIT step. Please suggest what is the best resolution for such error.

Thanks in advance.

As you have a PL/1 compilation error and PL/1 is not COBOL and there is a section for PL/1 why did you post in the COBOL section? Such sloppiness has led to your problem. Topic moved.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

That's not a PL/I compiler message, that's a binder a/k/a link-edit (IEWL) message. Binging (I don't use Google ;)) it suggests that you need a PDSE, not a mere PDS, allocated to SYSLMOD.
