Error description

  • When setting "CheckTapePos" option to "TSMonly", 'q option' and
    'select * from options'
    will report it as being set as "TTSMOnly"  incorrectly.
    
    There is an extra T and the o is capitalised in "TTSMOnly".
    
    
    
    For example:
    
    SETOPT CHECKTAPEPOS TSMonly
    
    
    Do you wish to proceed? (Yes (Y)/No (N)) y
    ANR2119I The CHECKTAPEPOS option has been changed in the options
    file.
    
    q opt checktapepos

Local fix

  • Ignore that the "CheckTapePos" option reports as TTSMOnly. It
    actually works as per TSMonly being set.
