Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: All users of the IBM Automatic Binary        *
    *                 Optimizer (ABO) for z/OS, v1.3               *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Line continuation in a SYSIN file is    *
    *                      specified by the (+) or (-)             *
    *                      continuation character, which           *
    *                      indicates the next line should be read  *
    *                      as if it were a part of the previous    *
    *                      line. Line continuation is not          *
    *                      required but can be used to break up    *
    *                      long lines to simplify editing or to    *
    *                      ease consumption by other tooling that  *
    *                      may have line length restrictions.      *
    *                                                              *
    *                      The (+) or (-) continuation character   *
    *                      must be the last non-blank and          *
    *                      non-comment character on a line. When   *
    *                      using the continuation characters, the  *
    *                      following rules apply:                  *
    *                                                              *
    *                      1) The (-) character can only be used   *
    *                      to continue a line following complete   *
    *                      options, directives, or specifiers.     *
    *                      Line continuation begins at column 1    *
    *                      on the next line. The (-) character     *
    *                      must be preceded by one or more         *
    *                      blanks.                                 *
    *                      2) The (+) character can be used to     *
    *                      continue a line following complete      *
    *                      options, directives, or specifiers, or  *
    *                      in the middle of options, directives,   *
    *                      or specifiers. Line continuation        *
    *                      begins with the first non-blank         *
    *                      character on the next line. When        *
    *                      continuing complete options,            *
    *                      directives, or specifiers, the          *
    *                      (+) character must be preceded by one   *
    *                      or more blanks.                         *
    *                      3) Blanks that precede the line         *
    *                      continuation character will be          *
    *                      included in the concatenated line.      *
    *                      4) The comment character (#) takes      *
    *                      precedence over the line continuation   *
    *                      character. If a line continuation       *
    *                      character is part of a comment, it      *
    *                      will be ignored as part of that         *
    *                      comment and not continue the comment.   *
    *                                                              *
    *                      An error message might be issued if     *
    *                      the continuation character is in an     *
    *                      unexpected position.                    *
    *                                                              *
    *                      For more information see the section    *
    *                      entitled "Line Continuation" in         *
    *                      Chapter 5 of the ABO Users Guide.       *
