Error description

  • RDz 9.0.1.4 LPEX block delete incorrectly removes trailing
    spaces when command line setting num cob is in effect
    
    
    
    The APAR PI26374 fix caused a regression of the APAR PI23904 fix
    
    
    
    RDz LPEX editor block delete erroneously removes trailing spaces
    outside the marked block
    
    
    A block delete ending at a point that is trailed by blanks finds
    that these blanks are deleted as well
    
    
    Repro scenario:
    
    Sample code:
    
    004730 01  T0000301-AAA.
    
    004740     05  T0000301-BBBBB            PIC X(06).
    
    004750     05  FILLER
    
    
    Open a source file that includes sample code in LPEX editor
    
    Issue LPEX command: num cob
    
    Select from -AAA until and including -BBBBB
    
    Press delete
    
    
    
    Observe that T0000301PIC X(06) has no blanks between T0000301
    and PIC
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • RDz 9.0.1.4 LPEX block delete incorrectly removed trailing
    spaces when sequence numbers were enabled, via the command line
    setting 'num cob'.
    

Problem conclusion

  • When using the LPEX editor, trailing spaces are no longer
    incorrectly removed during block deletes when sequence numbers
    are enabled.
    
    The problem listed in this APAR has been resolved with
    IBM Rational Developer for System z V9.0.1.5 Fix Pack which
