Error description

  • Debugging a program with the green-screen IBM i debug UI
    (STRDBG) a variable can be assigned a value with the EVAL
    expression such as EVAL MYVAR = 'abc'.  Performing a similar
    action using the debug UI in Rational Developer for i (RDI)
    9.6.0.8 with the Monitor Expression dialog results in the
    assignment value being incorrectly transformed to upper case
    ('ABC').
