Error description

  • With Rational Developer for System z V9.1.1.3 and 9.5.1.1,
    Real-time Syntax Check displays cryptic warning messages when a
    COBOL program contains an incorrectly coded multi-line literal.
    The problem doesn't exhibit any particular pattern. In some
    cases, several valid lines are flagged with cryptic warning
    messages while other invalid lines have no warnings. There are
    also several references to fields in a copybook that are not
    resolved, but these statements are NOT flagged with warnings.
    

Local fix

  • Find and correct the multi-line literal causing the error
    condition and the invalid warning messages will go away.
    

Problem summary

  • Continuation characters weren't handled properly
    

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix
