00280: Possible causes for a BBx error 16


Possible causes for a BBx error 16


Error 16 can be caused by config.bbx configuration problems or by operating system configuration problems. Print the TCB(10) value immediately after you receive the ERROR=16 to determine the reason: 

        >PRINT TCB(10) 



A TCB(10) of a positive 17 indicates a config.bbx problem–usually FBCS=, CIBS= or STBLEN=. Increase these parameters. 

A TCB(10) of a negative number needs a bit more info: 

Under a Unix operating system, simply look up the absolute value of the TCB(10) result in the file /usr/include/sys/errno.h. 

Under DOS/Windows evironments the values can be found on the Microsoft Development Center found here.
