  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • IGYPS0027-S Non-COBOL character(s) were found starting with '%'
    in column 34. The modulo arithmetic expression used against a
    character variable produces compiler errors
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • A COBOL compiler error is produced when trying to do a modulo
    (%) expression against a character variable instead of a numeric
     variable. EGL cobolGen allows character variables to be used as
     numeric variables. The logic in the generator was incorrect for
     modulo when using it this way. It should be noted at using
    character variables as numeric ones, has significant CPU
    overhead and should be avoided when performance is a
    consideration.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The software has been updated to produce correct COBOL source
    when using modulo against a character variable.
    

Temporary fix
