Error description

  • Problem Statement: Unable to add more than 65536 characters in
    extended rule. The map editor crashes.
    
    Simulation Steps: Tried adding more than 65536 characters little
    by little using method described in APAR IT18196
    https://www.ibm.com/support/pages/apar/IT18196
    
    Supporting Documentation/Asset Location: Customer map
    (STM_SQM.mxl) and text of rule he wants to add on end of
    PARAMETER loop (DIM_Rules.txt) from 4/20.
    
    Observations: This worked using instructions from APAR in

Problem conclusion

  • Resolution Summary:
    A code fix is provided.
    
    When Map Editor is correcting the extended rule's CRLF
    recursively, it runs out of memory if the rule has thousands of
    CRLF to look into. A function is created to fix the CRLF in the
    extended rule without using recursion.
