Where can I find a list of RHDCOPTF optional bit settings for IDMS release 19.0, 18.5, 18.0?
Since IDMS Release 18.0, Optional APARs are no longer used to tailor CA IDMS programs and instead optional APARs are replaced either with syntax or numbered options that are implemented through bit settings in the RHDCOPTF module. This information is documented in the IDMS 18.0 Release Notes, in the section “Optional APAR Replacement “. Optional APARs are activated by adding the appropriate bit setting in the #DEFOPTF macro specifications in the RHDCOPTF module.
A list of all IDMS 18.0 optional Apar Bit Settings are documented in RI29610 Title: OPTIONAL APAR BIT SETTINGS FOR RELEASE 18.0. whereas the list of all IDMS 18.5 Optional Apar Bit Settings are documented in RI70658 Title: OPTIONAL APAR BIT SETTINGS FOR RELEASE 18.5. For IDMS release 19.0; for now, use the 18.5 optional apar RI70658.
See RI08751 for release 17.0 and QI53099 for release 16.0.
New IDMS optional bit settings are introduced when required. These have not been added to the list but available via apar; do a keyword search for RHDCOPTF to find them:
