COBEC6019W CSA non-portable

The EXEC CICS ADDRESS CSA option will always return a null pointer/address value in the emulation.

This option is a non-portable usage due to its dependence on the specific format of internal CICS control blocks.

System Action:
The command and option are processed normally and a WARNING message is issued. The emulation will return a null pointer (or address) value in the argument specified for the CSA option; any reference to data areas using this address may cause unpredictable results.
It is recommended that the CSA option be removed. Access to standard CICS system information should be acquired using the EXEC CICS ASSIGN command or using the CICS System Programming API commands.
