Error description

  • Rational Developer for System z - RDz - v9.5.0
    
    Description :
    Via Menu Manager, when trying to issue the following command :
      ex 'XXX.XXXXX.EXEC(REXX)'  '$savefilebefore$fullname'
    the save is done after execution of the REXX instead of before.
    This is observed with large Cobol sources.
    The behavior is however correct with an LPEX editor.
    
    Steps to reproduce :
    - Create a Menu Manager item for COBOL files (*.cbl and *.cob)
    without override info or data set filter plus show on generic
    and show output.
    - Select the context "MVS Files in COBOL Editor"
    - Open a COBOL source, change it, then execute the procedure
    from right-mouse click context.
    ==> Output shows unchanged source

Problem summary
