Error description

  • 1. Not recognizing the -INC in a BMS map (or else just giving
    wrong
    error message)
      2. Not accepting 3278 as a TERM value in BMS Maps.
      3. "Breakage" of ABMSParser.dll during a Verification Parse.
    
    
    
    
    1. The "-INC" statement was used in a FEW (I think 3) BMS Maps.
    This
    was flagged with the following error message:
    Unsupported Construction '-INC'
    
    Apparently, there is NO problem using this construction on "z"
    and it
    seems logical that it should work with ATW.  Note that the
    message was
    NOT that the copybook could not be opened (which is what I would
    have
    expected).
    
    
    2. On one of the BMS Macros, a "term" value of 3278 was used
    (instead of
    3270) and this was flagged as an error. We changed it to 3270
    but it is
    not clear why 3278 should not work.
    
    3. For one of the BMS macro files, we received the following
    error (and
    ONLY the following error):
    Internal error: ABMSParser.dll : ABMSParser().
    

Local fix

  • We have successfully reproduced the errors for this case.  The
    DLL error
    was
    caused by two programming mistakes.  On line 682, there is an
    extra
    comma
    after IC.  Remove this and the line should read
    ATTRB=(UNPROT,NORM,IC)
    The
    second was on line 686, also cause by an extra comma.  Change
    the line
    to
    read ATTRB=(UNPROT,NORM)  Making these changes will allow the
    file to
    verify
    correctly.  The Internal Error that is cause by these syntax
    errors is
    not
    very helpful, but Birch gives a more meaningful error message.
    
    As for the three -INC errors.  We have successfully reproduced
    these
    issues
    in both Sycamore and Birch.  We are submitting them to
    Development for
    investigation.  For the time being, if you just comment out
    those lines,
    then the files will verify correctly.  The correct screens are
    created
    and
    should be fine for the Proof of Concept.  In the mean time, our
    Development
    team will be looking into fixing this error.
