One nice solution is to replace "lying" with "playing". My wife is a very poor liar, and Santa always was a game without a lot of emotion invested in believing. (My son made sure we knew that he never stopped believing in the Tooth Fairy - and wanted the money). Parents can invite the kids to share in the Santa game the same way as they do the Spiderman game. It's the concept of movies such as _Polar Express_, where the object of the movie is to show that belief is the most important thing that bothers me. Belief in Santa? It's not what you believe in - it is that you believe in some fiction that's important. It should bother Judson more, as in the long run, this teaches people that this very important belief has nothing to do with reality.
  • 2. Micro-Focus: bloated index
    While I'm here ... this is unprepared, but: Does anyone have a quick response available for an idx that suddenly bloats to 750+Mbytes? (and becomes unusable - can't remember the error offhand, but maybe 'badly formatted index') There are about 120k data records; 1 primary, 2 secondaries with duplicates allowed; manual, multiple locks allowed. Knocking up a test program, to try to replicate, we've: 1. added 3 duplicates to each record's secondaries; 2. read, deleted and written back all data records; 3. run out of ideas The only thing we haven't attempted is volume of transactions per second - about 6 instances of the real program will get fired off and each will then process up to about 1 transaction per second - adding records, while something else gets to use & delete them, keeping a more-or-less steady population. The file gets reorganised once per week. The processes run almost 15x7. Environment - SCO unix. Any memories stirred? Michael

It's interesting that people around the world wanting to learn about electronics, or astronomy, or evolution come up with the same theories and practices. But those wanting to learn about God come up with extremely different results.

1.114 Attempt to access item beyond bounds of memory - (Signal 11)


I'm trying to run a cobol program and calling "DBOPEN" with parameters

I'm trying to open the database with read mode.

When I animate the program, at this specific point of calling "DBOPEN"
, Attempt to access item beyond bounds of memory - (Signal 11) occurs.
I'm not able to proceed further.

Help needed in this case.

With Kind Regards,

2.Microfocus Cobol - Execution error code: 114

Has anyone else had this problem?

We have recently upgraded our Unix box to HP-UX 11 & Microfocus Cobol
OCDS 4.1.40. All our cobol sources were recompiled under the new
version of OS and OCDS.

Also worth mention is that the same source program also runs on
various other flavours of Unix OS & Cobol, e.g. AIX 4.33/4.1.20, HP-UX
10.20/4.1.20, HP-UX 10.20/4.1.40 without any problems.

Having recompiled I am getting the following error when I run the

HPD/Micro Focus Cobol Errors                                        
Execution error : file '/opt/users/programs/ifa/IFA54RN/PFS2150.gnt'
error code: 114, pc=0, call=107, seg=0                              
114     Attempt to access item beyond bounds of memory (Signal 10)  
HP/MF COBOL Version: v4.1.40                                        
HP-UX hp9000 B.11.00 A 9000/806                                     
pid: 4483 gid: 20 uid: 116                                          

I have managed to isolate where the program is falling over, here is a
section of the code:

MOVE WC-KEY(WC-IND) TO WPFS9260-KEY.              
CALL "PFS9260" USING WS-COMMON,                   
IF WPFS9260-APPLIED-TO = "Y"                      
   GO TO CD999-EXIT.                              
MOVE WC-KEY(WC-IND) TO WPFS9290-KEY.              
offending line
CALL "PFS9290" USING WS-COMMON,                   
IF WPFS9290-ERROR = "Y"                           
   GO TO CD999-EXIT.                              

In the code above, the program falls over with the error mentioned
above on the line indicated.

Interestingly though, if I put in a DISPLAY statement just prior to
the offending line, as shown in the code above, the program runs
through without any problem.

The other thing is that if I run just the .int, (renamed the .gnt)
then the program works fine. So it appears that the problem lies in
the gnt and something is getting corrupted. We've done the usual of
updating the machine to the latest OS patches.

Does anyone have any ideas of how to get around this. I don't think
the problem lies with the code (although not a 100& sure), since this
same program is compiled on various different platforms running our
other versions of Unix and Cobol. So if there were a problem in the
code, I'd expect to get the same problem on our other unix boxes.

Anyway - if anyone can give me some ideas to try out, I'd really
appreciate it.


3.Signal 11 error (core)

This statement gives core dump

  if( pError->pFileName[0] != '\0' )

can someone suggest why ?

This statement was failing in all our unix environments so we changed
it to:

if( !(pError->pFunctionName == NULL))

It worked for some environments then now again it failed in 1
Any idea ?

All memory allocation have been done.

4.Error 114 in Microfocus Server Express 2.2 when calling C functions

Are you executing with the threaded COBOL run-time? This is necessary on
HP-UX due to Oracle linking their own libraries with the threaded C run-time
on this platform.

If the code causing the RTS114 is the C code, which is calling Oracle
functions, does this trap, or fail in any other way, if you run it
standalone (i.e. without COBOL)?

Regarding your final point :

> Do you know a run-time option or a compiler option to prevent this error
> ? Microfocus support is not very quick in finding something...

Have you contacted SupportLine with a cutdown sample which demonstrates this
problem? It sounds like you've isolated where the problem is occuring which
is good, but is the NULL pointer due to a corruption coming from COBOL?


5.pthread_create returns error code 11

i have a code that uses pthread, but when i use pthread_create()
method it returns error code 11. I have found out that this is often
because of exceeding the THREAD_MAX limit for the process. But i want
to use only about 24 threads at a given time, and i destroy the
threads (or atleast i thought so) can someone tell me what i am doing
wrong here it would be of great help! thanks!

 for (i=0; i<no_pairs; ){
        for (j=0; j<MAX_THREADS && i<no_pairs; j++,i++){
            data[j].a = seeds[i/no_seeds];
            data[j].b = seeds[i%no_seeds];
            data[j].N = N;
            data[j].L = nones+nzeros;
            data[j].p1 = get_string (seeds[i/no_seeds], nzeros
            data[j].p2 = get_string (seeds[i%no_seeds], nzeros
            data[j].results = pairs[i];
            rc = pthread_create (&threads[j], &attr, run_actree, (void
            if (rc) {
                printf ("ERROR; return code from pthread_create() is
\n", rc);
                exit (-1);
        for (k=0; k<j; k++){
            rc = pthread_join (threads[k], &status);
            if (rc) {
                printf("ERROR; return code from pthread_join() is %d
\n", rc);

    pthread_attr_destroy (&attr);

Above is the main loop i create threads in, MAX_THREADS = 24

Any help as to where i am going wrong is greatly appreciated.
