Error description

  • PL/I editor throws a warning message ""ERROR_TOKEN" unexpected
    tokens ignored" for Danish character  "ᅦ￷"  when placed in a
    EXEC CICS statement.
    
    Example source:
    
    Example: proc;
    
    dcl     Exampleᅦ￷     char (8);
    
             Exampleᅦ￷ = 'variable';
    
             exec cics link
                       program (Exampleᅦ￷)
             ;
    
    end Example;
    

Local fix

  • Avoid this character in the EXEC CICS statement
    

Problem summary

  • The RDz CICS statement parser does not accept non-English
    characters unless specified in NAMES compiler option. This does
    not match the PL/I parser behavior.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Modified the CICS statement parser to match the behavior of the
    PL/I parser with respect to non-English characters.
    
    The problem listed in this APAR has been resolved with
    IBM Rational Developer for System z V9.1.1.2 Fix Pack which
    is available from the Recommended Fixes support download page:
