Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: Users of the SQL preprocessor who have EXEC  *
    *                 SQL statements containing strings containing *
    *                 the character '/'                            *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The code generated for such programs is *
    *                      correct, but the listing would have the *
    *                      '/' characters in the EXEC SQL          *
    *                      statements changed to a '\' (a hex E0)  *
    *                      and this could lead to doubt and/or     *
    *                      confusion                               *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    

Problem conclusion

  • The SQL preprocessor has been changed to leave '/' alone inside
    EXEC SQL statements unless it is preceded by an '*' in which
    case the bytes will be changed to '*>'. This prevents compiler
    errors since the EXEC SQL statement will have been placed inside
    comments that must not end prematurely.
