I'm trying to search for a particular string, irrespective of case, in the REXX code, its not fetching all the occurrence of the string. For eg: I'm finding for all the occurences of the string ' Call 'ABCD' ' in one COBOL program. I have two calls but one call is of the format ' CALL 'ABCD' ' and the other is like 'Call 'ABCD''. The REXX exec is fetching me only one string, that's ' Call 'ABCD' '. But my requirement is to fetch both. Is there any way to search for the string irrespective of the case other than putting a 'OR' condition to check to both lower case and Upper case.


Thanks,
Paul

No.

I'd consider changing the variable that contains the string to all of one case, either all upper or all lower.

But I'm searching in existing Cobol Programs for all these call strings to convert to another string.But searching itself is not fetching all the strings.

I think SUPERK is suggesting that you convert all lines to uppercase before searching.

You would not want to save it back in uppercase, so I suggest coping to another file to work with and to find what you want.
