E-COB: Compiling COBOL Programs in a Unicode Environment Does Not Clear The Cblunicode Directory From Previous Compile (Doc ID 2738070.1)

Last updated on JULY 08, 2021

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise PT PeopleTools - Version 8.57 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Sample Environment:
Tools 8.57.14
HRMS 9 application
Server Express 5.1
Linux platform

The site is running a Unicode and decoupled environment. When a cobol program file is removed from PS_HOME/src/cbl and all the cobols are recompiled using delivered compile script pscbl.mak, the target cblbin directory still contains the compiled version (gnt) of the program file that was removed from PS_HOME/src/cbl.
e.g If a file e.g PTPDBTST is removed from PS_HOME/src/cbl and all cobols are recompiled, then PTPDBTST.gnt still remains in cblbin dir.  Expectation is that PTPDBTST.gnt is not compiled, as it is removed from PS_HOME/src/cbl  and should be removed from PS_HOME/cblbin as well.

This issue can lead to unexpected results with cobol processes.
