PM76442: Replace All, in the Search, will hang
Closed as program error.
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.
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.
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. The problem listed in this APAR has been resolved with IBM Rational Developer for System z V188.8.131.52 Fix Pack which is available from the Recommended Fixes support download page: http://www-1.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=2294&uid=swg27006335
