Error description

  • Rational Developer for System z - RDz Client v8.5.1.4
    
    Description :
    When parsing a CICS statement that is coded inside a copybook,
    The error is : "Copybook 'GNM0049C' contains the following
    error: "ERROR_TOKEN" unexpected tokens ingored.".
    
    Steps to reproduce :
    - Define a copybook with the following statement :
    EXEC CICS
         ASSIGN ABCODE(:TAG2;-CICIS-ABND-COD)
         NOHANDLE
    END-EXEC
    - Then create a Cobol program that call sthis copybook as
    shown below:
    COPY <copybook name> REPLACING ==:TAG2:== BY ===WS==.
    - A warning appears on the COPY line in the Cobol program.
    

Local fix

  • If you replace the :TAG2: symbol in the copybook
    with WS then the error goes away.
    

Problem summary

  • The RDz COBOL parser mishandles multi-token replacements in EXEC
    statements well.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Modified the COBOL parser to better handle replacements in EXEC
    statements.
