                    August 20, 2002
.
                    IBM Enterprise PL/I for z/OS and OS/390 V3.2 Integrates PL/I Business
                    and Web-Oriented Processes
.
.
                    Overview
.
                    IBM Enterprise PL/I for z/OS? and OS/390? V3.2 gives you the needed PL/I
                    function to begin to integrate PL/I business processes and Web-oriented
                    business processes. This release provides:
.
                       * Enhancements to help improve application performance
                       * Compatibility improvements with prior PL/I compilers to ease
                         migration
                       * Support for some new advanced functions in the Debug Tool
.
                    The goal of Enterprise PL/I V3.2 is to enable developers to leverage 30
                    years worth of applications in new endeavors.
.
                    Key Prerequisites
.
                    One of the following:
.
                       * z/OS V1.1 (5694-A01), or later
                       * OS/390 V2.10 (5647-A01), or later
.
                    Depending on the function used, certain levels of other programs may be
                    required. Refer to the Software Requirements section for details.
.
                    Planned Availability Date
.
                    September 27, 2002
.
                    For ordering, contact:
.
                    Your IBM representative, an IBM Business Partner, or IBM Americas Call
                    Centers at 800-IBM-CALL (Reference: LE001).
.
                    Description
.
                    Improved Performance
.
                    V3.2 contains a number of enhancements designed to improve the run-time
                    execution of your applications, including:
.
                       * Many of the I/O library routines have been upgraded to improve
                         performance.
                       * The compiler now handles more conversions by generating inline code,
                         which means these conversions will be done much faster than in
                         previous releases. It also flags all conversions not done inline.
                       * The compiler-generated code now uses less stack storage.
                       * The compiler generates improved code for references to the TRANSLATE
                         built-in function.
                       * The performance has been improved for the compiler-generated code for
                         SUBSCRIPTRANGE checking for arrays with known bounds.
                       * Several compiler options have been added that allow you to choose the
                         generation of more optimized code.
.
                    Easier Migration
.
                    V3.2 contains improvements to make it more compatible with the PL/I for
                    MVS? & VM and OS PL/I V2.3 compilers. The improvements include:
.
                       * The defaults for several options are now set to increase the
                         compatibility of the generated code.
                       * The compiler now supports IN and OUT mapping of COBOL structures in
                         the same manner as the previous compilers.
                       * The aggregate listing now provides the same information as offered by
                         the previous compilers and now includes structures with adjustable
                         extents.
                       * The compiler now generates compatible code for procedures containing
                         ENTRY statements with different RETURNS attributes.
.
                    Improved Usability
.
                       * During installation, you can now change the default options and you
                         may also set some options as non-overridable.
                       * The integrated preprocessor now supports DB2? Unicode.
.
                    Compiler Support for Debug Tool
.
                    The Enterprise PL/I compiler is enhanced in V3.2 to support some function
                    in the new, optional, separately purchased IBM Debug Tool Utilities and
                    Advanced Functions for z/OS and OS/390 V3, which includes Automonitor
                    support for PL/I programs.
.
                    The Automonitor support automatically displays, in the Debug Tool Monitor
                    window, the values of the variables referenced in the current statement.
                    The values are displayed when Debug Tool gets control, for example, when
                    you step to a statement or when a breakpoint is reached. Data items
                    referenced by the current statement while the Automonitor is in effect are
                    automatically selected for monitoring in the Debug Tool Monitor window
                    and/or the Debug Tool log. Those explicitly selected for monitoring will
                    also be displayed in the Monitor window.
.
                    For more information on the new IBM Debug Tool Utilities and Advanced
                    Functions for z/OS and OS/390 V3 product refer to Software Announcement
                    202-193 , dated August 20, 2002.
.
                    Full Function Verses Alternate Function Offerings
.
                    The mainframe interactive debug tool is offered with the Enterprise PL/I
                    compiler in what is called the Full Function offering. This debug tool is
                    a common facility that supports:
.
                       * Enterprise COBOL for z/OS and OS/390
                       * Enterprise PL/I for z/OS and OS/390
                       * COBOL for OS/390 & VM
                       * COBOL for MVS & VM
                       * VisualAge? PL/I for OS/390
                       * PL/I for MVS & VM
                       * z/OS C/C++ optional feature
                       * OS/390 C/C++ optional feature
.
                    Only one Full Function offering is required for debugging applications
                    written using any of these programming products. An Alternate Function
                    offering is available for customers who do wish to receive the Enterprise
                    PL/I for z/OS and OS/390 compiler but not the Debug Tool.
.
                    The debug tool is also offered as a separate product, IBM Debug Tool for
                    z/OS and OS/390 V3.1. For more information about the functionality offered
                    in the debug tool, refer to Software Announcement 202-194 , dated
                    August 20, 2002.
