APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The scenario was built with RDz 9.1.5.4 using IBM zOS Explorer
    v3.0.1.9.
    When using double quotes inside Bidi text, for example, in the
    Working storage section, both LPEX and Cobol editors
    recognizes it as error and displays the "error token" flag.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • When quotes are placed between Bidi text segments, Bidi
    algorithm changes their placement, that makes the text wrong for
     the parser
    

Problem conclusion

  • During the parsing process, quotes are replaced with apostrophes
     into the parsing buffer.  The displayed and stored text remains
     untouched.
    
    The problem listed in this APAR has been resolved with
