Local fix

Problem summary

  • When attempting to compare two COBOL source files that have
    nested COBOL programs, the compare editor fails with an
    exception.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The COBOL Compare Parser needs to be fixed to handle nested
    COBOL source programs.
    
    The problem listed in this APAR has been resolved with
