[COBOL.BWR] 1-Jul-80 Dan Daigneault x-4165
This file documents 2 minor problems found in COBOL 12A
these have been SPR'ed and will be fixed in the next release
1) The "BLOCK CONTAINS n CHARACTERS" clause now works as
documented. This means that if a block contains x
characters clause is used each physical block in the file
will contain exactly x characters. In previous COBOL's
this clause was taken to mean the file was blocked 0.
Files created with this option of the clause will become
very large. Files written under COBOL 11 with this
clause and recompiled under 12A will not read properly.
2) The features of the DX20/TX02 tape system will not be
accessible to COBOL 12A users at this time. This is due
to a coding error from marlboro where the wrong codes
were checked when checking for the controler type.
