Error description

  • Rational Developer for System z - RDz - v8.5.1
    The RDz real time syntax checker treats cbl and process as
    Compiler Directive Keywords and will underline the entire
    line when these are present in columns 1-6.
    
    The cbl and process being present in columns 1-6 are not
    COBOL compiler directive keywords when they are after
    the Identification Division, and should not be treated
    as such.
    
    ***********************************************
    Local fix:
    Change cbl and process to be anything else such as cbla.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • The COBOL real-time syntax parser will treat "CBL" or "PROCESS"
    as allowable compiler statement keywords in columns 1-6 anywhere
    in the program source.  This can cause syntax errors to occur
    if, for example the text "CBL   " appears in columns 1-6 after
    the ID Division in the program source.
    
    The COBOL real-time syntax parser has been updated to treat "CBL
    and "PROCESS" words as compiler directing statement keywords
    only before to the declaration of the ID division.
    
    This APAR is being closed FIN with concurrence from the
    submitting customer. This means that a fix to this APAR is
    expected to be delivered from IBM in a release which is being
    developed at the time that the APAR was closed. The latest
    release of the product to exit development at the time this
    APAR was closed was: Rational Developer for System z V9.0.1.3.
    

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix
