Error description

  • Rational Developer for System z v9.1.1.2 real time syntax check
    incorrectly shows: space is invalid
    
    This happens when using the space value e.g.
    88 MY-VARNAME5  VALUE 'N' space.
    
    This is a regression because this problem does not occur in RDz
    9.1.1.1
    
    In the source, an error flag is set for the statement: "COPY
    COPY1"
    Hovering over the mark with the mouse pointer shows:
    Copybook "COPY1" contains the following error: space is invalid
    
    PROGRAM SOURCE COCOPY.cob
           data division.
           working-storage section.
                COPY COPY1.                  <<< Error flag
           01 DYNNAME PIC X(60).
           88 MY-VARNAME5  VALUE 'N' space.  <<< Error flag
           88 MY-VARNAME6  VALUE 'N' ' '.
           procedure division.
               INITIALIZE A-FIELD.
               DISPLAY 'COCOPY'.
           End Program COCOPY.
    
    COPYBOOK COPY1.cpy
           01 MY-VARNAME1 PIC X(60).
           88 MY-VARNAME2  VALUE 'N' space.
           88 MY-VARNAME3  VALUE 'N' ' '.
