Error description

  • Rational Developer for System z - RDz - v8.0.3.2
    User has JCL that contains a substitution character of the
    Yen '?'.
    If  user submits JCL in a PCOMM session it works.
    However, if this job is submitted while open in a RDz
    editor then it is not transferred correctly and fails with:
    IEFC602I Unidentifiable character ? on the Proc Statement
    
    Recreation Steps:
     Set host codepage to  IBM-930,  workstation
    codepage to CP943 , and  use the Yen as a substitute
     in the PROC statement.
    
     For example:
    
    //DT@CICS PROC SUFFIX=1?,
    //           INDEX=DFHECP
    
    Expected Behavior:
    //TRN  PGM=DFHECP?SUFFIX
    
    will be substituted in jcl as:
    //TRN PGM=DFHECP1$
    
    ********************************************
    Local fix:
    Use local codepage of UTF-8 as a workaround
