PI82615: RDZ IDZ LPEX EDITING LINES CONTAINING BIDI CHARACTERS RESULTS IN SYNTAX "ERROR TOKEN" MESSAGES.
Fixes are available
Closed as program error.
Rational Developer for System z 18.104.22.168 LPEX Editing lines containing BIDI characters results in syntax "error token" messages. When editing COBOL members and editing a line containing BIDI characters some wrong syntax errors are displayed while no major change was performed on the source code. scenario : Open an element (COBOL type) for edit with LPEX editor ISPF mode edit a line containing BIDI charecters (as in pront screen) - deleting even a blank some wrong "error token" messages are displayed. Then also: - "Content Assist" option not shown - "Program Control Flow" option is disabled - "Mouse hover" assist does not function
In complex combinations of mixed Latin-Hebrew text, COBOL parser did not determine the end of the line correctly and as result took first character of next line as continuation of the current line. The wrong behavior occurred because BIDI mask injected to obtain correct visual rendering were removed from the line inconsistently to determined line length.
The extra marks removal was dropped. These BIDI marks are not illegal characters for COBOL parser, and changes in core parsing mechanism are more dangerous than dropping that removal. The problem listed in this APAR has been resolved with IBM Rational Developer for z Systems V22.214.171.124 Fix Pack which is available from the Recommended Fixes support download page: http://www-1.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=2294&uid=swg27006335
