I see GC is accepting the value. Just giving a warning which is reasonable.
Don't think we need to eliminate the warning, which will happen with this patch.
Maybe we need to proceed as with numeric, but to give a warning, at least with std=ibm or osvs

Thanks for the bug report and patch. This is technically extension, but it's a very innocuous one and it's supported by Micro Focus (see VALUE Clause, General Rule 1.b). I'll commit this immediately.

I believe it's bug:

01 N PIC .999 VALUE 0.
DISPLAY 'N:', N.
END PROGRAM TEST-PIC.
address@hidden cobc -x test-pic.cbl
test-pic.cbl: 6: warning: alphanumeric value is expected
If I'm right (about it being a bug), the problem is in typck.c; and because of the "TODO" comment, I think it's something that slipped through the cracks. I think NUMERIC-EDITED could be parsed the same as NUMERIC is.
I'm using r1560. I've attached my suggested patch.
