Less than comparison operator Issue in Visual COBOL
In Visual COBOL for eclipse we are facing the below issue
IF (Variable-1 < 0) OR
(Variable-2 < 0) OR
(Variable-3 < 0)
GO TO 500-FINALIZE.
The PIC clause and value for the 3 variables are as below.
Variable-1 (S9(005)V99)- 0000000+
Variable-2 (S9(005)V99)- 0000000+
Variable-3 (S9(005)V9(6)) - 00000000000+
The above condition is set to true but actually, it is not.
When we try SIGN-FIXUP compiler option it is working fine. Whether any other alternate solution is there for this issue?
I tested this here using Visual COBOL for Eclipse 5.0 in a native Windows project and the test results were false so I could not reproduce your reported behavior.
Can you please tell me what product version and under which operating system you are testing?
What other directives are you using?
Should these be specified as COMP or COMP-3?
If you copy this code into a test program by itself without any other additional directives does it still fail?
