Problem conclusion

Temporary fix

Comments

  • SuperC now supports new process options ASCII and CPnnnnn
    for comparing and searching ASCII files, as documented below.
    
    The "High Level Assembler for z/OS & z/VM & z/VSE Toolkit
    Feature User's Guide Release 6" publication (GC26-8710-09) will
    be updated as follows.
    
    --- START OF DOC UPDATES ---
    
    In Chapter 6, "Using Enhanced SuperC", the following changes
    will be inserted in the section "Process Options" to document
    the ASCII and CPnnnnn options.
    
    Table 25 on page 219 is updated to insert the following rows
    (where Y represents a check mark) in the appropriate
    alphabetical sequence, indicating that these options apply to
    all compare and search functions:
    
    | ASCII   | Translate ASCII input data | Y | Y | Y | Y | Y |
    
    | CPnnnnn | Specify EBCDIC code page   | Y | Y | Y | Y | Y |
    
    The list of option descriptions starting on page 221 is updated
    to insert the following option descriptions in the appropriate
    alphabetical sequence:
    
    ASCII    Process ASCII input files.  For LINE or WORD compare
             and for Search the input data is translated from
             ASCII to EBCDIC.  For BYTE compare, character data in
             the listing is translated from ASCII to EBCDIC.  For
             FILE compare, this option is accepted but has no
             effect.  Any search or change string given in
             hexadecimal notation is assumed to be in ASCII,
             matching the original input data.  The ASCII code page
             is assumed to be ISO 8859-1 (CCSID 819).  The EBCDIC
             code page may be specified using the CPnnnnn option.
    
    CPnnnnn  Use the specified EBCDIC code page number (up to 5
             digits) when translating data using the ASCII option.
             The default is CP1047.  All CECP and Euro Latin-1 code
             pages are supported, as follows:
    
             Default: 1047 (Open Systems Latin-1 EBCDIC)
             CECP: 37, 273, 277, 278, 280, 284, 285, 297, 500, 871
             ECECP (Euro): 1140 to 1149
