Starting in release 9.1 for CA InterTest for CICS , CA SymDump CICS, CA SymDump Batch and CA InterTest Batch PROTSYM files can now contain multiple versions of the same program. When running reports or displaying the PROTSYM programs on a screen or window, duplicate program versions will be displayed in the descending order of compile date/time (newest to oldest).
To allow multiple program version support, include the MAXPGMVER=# parameter when initializing the PROTSYM file.
Indicates the number of versions of a single program the PROTSYM will allow (up to 255). The default value is 1, which indicates no multiple program versions. For assembler programs, multiple program version support uses the HLASM compile date/time on the listing that has the format 2014/08/04 08.36. Hence, multiple program listings for the same program that are compiled within the same minute are not supported.
In the example below the PROTSYM file is initialized to allow five versions of the same program.
//LOAD EXEC PGM=IN25UTIL,REGION=2048K
//STEPLIB DD DSN=HLQ.CAVHLOAD,DISP=SHR
//MESSAGE DD SYSOUT=*
//PROTSYM DD DSN=HLQ.PROTSYM,DISP=SHR
//CARDS DD *
In the IN25UTIL report below the PROTSYM file contains four versions of program COBDEMO
