APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The Perl range operator does not always return a result.
    Used in a Choice List Hook e.g. like this
    @choices = ("3".."9");
    it does not populate the list.
    
    A numeral range only returns the list items if it starts with
    "0" or leading zero as "01", "04", etc
    
    So for example,
    
    not populating:
    @choices = ("1".."7");
    @choices = (0..7);
    
    populating:
    @choices = ("A".."K");
    @choices = ("D".."K");
    @choices = ("0".."21");
    @choices = ("01".."21");
    @choices = ("05".."21");
