If your prompt text on a PARM is exactly 30 characters (the maximum allowed), then you DON'T get any dots! Even though there is space for one dot! Why is that?

Again, noted in the SAA: If there is not enough space for at least three dots, they should be omitted.

The documentation you linked to (thanks for that) says there must be
room for two or more dots, not three. But in either case, it is not
adhered to in actual command displays. If the prompt is 29 characters
(i.e. the text ends at column 30) you get one dot, which is all there
is room for.

I appreciate your response. Now I know that neither the implementation
nor the documentation matches what I consider to be the most sensible
