lib$tparse migration?

» close window

The Question is:

Hi Wizard,
I'm migrating old MACRO code from VAX to Alpha.  Many of these objects utilize
 the LIB$TPARSE routine.  When building them on the Alpha I get data in code
 stream errors.  Just as a test, I took the sample MACRO code for LIB$TPARSE
 out of the OpenVMS manua
l and attempted to build it, only to get the same results.
I'm pretty new to building MACRO objects, and am obviously missing something

The Answer is :

    LIB$TPARSE is available on OpenVMS Alpha in translated form only, and
    is suitable only for use by translated images.
    Change your code to call LIB$TABLE_PARSE,  which has the same calling
    sequence as LIB$TPARSE, but is a native Alpha procedure.
    See the description of LIB$T[ABLE]_PARSE, in the OpenVMS RTL Library
