Error description

  • C translator DFHEDP1$ splits all sourcelines at column 72 by
    inserting a backslash as a line continuation character.
    If the character on column 72, however, is a space it just
    splits the line without inserting the continuation character.
    This works in most situations. But not for example if you use
    the "//" as C comment (compile-option SSCOMM). If this line is
    split without a continuation character the following compile
    step gets a syntax error :
    
    EDC0347 SYNTAX ERROR: POSSIBLE MISSING ';' OR ','
    

Local fix

  • Manuelly insert a continuation character in column 72 .

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: CICS C translator DFHEDP1$ may not      *
    *                      correctly add a continuation character  *

    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    If the CICS C translator is used with options
    MARGINS(1,80,0),OPMARGINS(1,72,0),OPSEQUENCE(73,80)
    a C comment (beginning //) which is longer than 72 characters
    but has a blank character in column 71 or 72, will not have a
    continuation character ( \ ) added to the first part of the
    split output line.

Problem conclusion

  • The CICS C translator, DFHEDP1$, has been changed to correctly
    add a continuation character to the first part of a split output
    line when using options
    MARGINS(1,80,0),OPMARGINS(1,72,0),OPSEQUENCE(73,80).
