  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • RDz displays the following syntax errors when editing COBOL
    source containing the DLIUIB copybook when the copybook was
    delivered with CICS/TS prior to version 4.2 (i.e. DLIUIB
    copybook delivered in CICS 4.2 has changed and RDz does not
    produce these errors):
    
    Multiple markers at this line
    
    - The copybook contains the following error: 'ERROR_TOKEN'
    unexpected tokens ignored
    
    - The copybook contains the following error: 'REDEFINES'
    expected
    instead of this input
    
    
    
    followed by:
    
    'ERROR_TOKEN' unexpected tokens ignored
    
    
    
    The code compiles fine on the mainframe.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • The CICS TS copybook DLIUIB  (up through CICS TS V4R1,
    CICSTS.V4R1M0.CICS.SDFHCOB(DLIUIB) )contains certain unprintable
    characters that can cause editor real-time parsing errors in RDz
    8.0.3 and RDz 8.0.3.1.    The unprintable characters are being
    read using the wrong character encoding, which causes the
    sequence numbers in columns 73-80 of the DLIUIB copybook to be
    parsed beyond column 80, causing the failure.
    

Problem conclusion

  • This fix reads the copybook using the correct encoding.   In a
    z/OS Project, user may need to refresh the cached copy of the
    copybook (right-click on DLIUIB reference in the COPY statement
    and select "Refresh Cached Copy").
    
    The problem listed in this APAR has been resolved with
    IBM Rational Developer for System z V8.0.3.2 Fix Pack which
    is available from the Recommended Fixes support download page:
