I always get this effect when I forget and create source physical file using simple
and then it takes significant time to recall, that it must be created with explicit CCSID(37) rather than my default 1122...
Another option is to change your user profile CCSID to 37...

PS. You were lucky you had no #include!

Subject: [C400-L] The character } is not a valid C source character


I have simple c program:
int main(void)
return 0;

14 - for compilation and error
The character } is not a valid C source character.

It is a CCSID issue.
I have on my profile and source file CCSID=273.

"trigraphs". ??< and ??> works ok.

I tried #pragma convert(273) and also compilation parameter CRTBNDC TGTCCSID(37), but it still doesn't work.
Any Idea?
