Error description

  • Rational Developer for System z - RDz - V9.1
    
    Defining a host character value for 0xFF will have no effect.
    
    Re-creation steps:
    
    Within ISPF define a source file containing some 'invisible'
    characters. For example, add the following line in hex format:
    
    F0/1C/1C/F0/FF/F0
    
    Open that file with the LPEX Editor.
    
    If no Host Character Replacement have been defined, that line
    will appear as '000'.
    
    Close the file and go to the preference: Window>Preferences>
    LPEX Editor>Appearance>Host Characters, and set:
    - '.' as replacement for 0x1C
    - ':' as replacement for 0xFF
    
    Open again the file. That line will now appear as '0..00'
    instead of '0..0:0
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • After adding a substitution in the settings found in
    Window->Preferences->LPEX->Appearance->Host characters for the
    character 0xFF, the correct substitution was not performed in
    the LPEX editor view.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Incorrect checking was causing the 0xFF character to go
    undetected. The correct bit masking is now used to identify and
    substitute the 0xFF character via the settings found in
    Window->Preferences->LPEX->Appearance->Host characters.
    
    The problem listed in this APAR has been resolved with
    IBM Rational Developer for System z V9.1.1.1 Fix Pack which
    is available from the Recommended Fixes support download page:
