Is there any good way to set CCSID for named constants? I had hoped that the compiler could figure it out, but alas no. Here's a snippet of what I'd like to do.

Dcl-c constant ';' ;
If %scan(constant :variable) > 0;

The compiler doesn't like that (RNF0353: The first and second parameters of %SCAN or %SCANR are not of the same type.). I've got it working now by using hex constants, but that's kind of a pain to work with.


Instead of using hex constants, it might be less awkward/error-prone to code like this, using %CHAR to convert the constant to UTF-8.

If %scan(%char(constant:*utf8) :variable) > 0;
