    invalid errors for SET statements, for example, in statements
    like:
    "  SET  ONE=,TWO=,THREE=,FOUR=,"
    the JCL Editor appears to expect the ' ' after the equal but it
    is not required.  Additionally for SET statements like:
            SET GENR=(-0)
    the JCL Editor shows error "datasetname expected".

    characters to be specified within parentheses on SET, EXEC and
    PROC statements.
