Error description

  • The 'replace all' function of the search hangs.
    Use LPEX to view a trivial file, local or remote.
    2. Press  ctrl-F
    3. Check boxes 'regular expression' 'wrap' 'restrict search to
    columns'  'start column 1' 'end column 6'
    4. Type a period in the 'find' field.  Nothing else should be in
    the 'find' or the 'replace' fields.
    5. Click 'replace all'.  That clicked button stays depressed.
    Click anywhere else to see the hourglass cursor.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • In System z LPEX or Basic LPEX and fields are enabled (such as
    for COBOL or assembler), performing a Replace All when using a
    regular expression, restricting the column range and replacement
    string that is empty may result in LPEX looping forever and
    hanging.
    

Problem conclusion

  • When columns were enabled in LPEX, and a Replace All operation
    was performed, LPEX did not take into account the field lengths,
    and therefore repeated the replace an infinite number of times.
    When fields are enabled LPEX will now only perform the replace
    all operation based on the field length.
