Symptoms

On Applications Agile 6.2.0
Find the following two different behaviors of the function scan.

  1. When parsing a string for integers - e.g. "10.12.2015" as "%i.%i.%i", the function scans for floating point numbers. This means, the first parsed number is "10.12" so that INT01 is "10", and the second parsed number is "2015", so that INT02 is "2015"
  2. When parsing a string for integers, the result is different than it was in former versions. (e.g: cnt=scan(string,"%i",integer) will generate value 1 instead of 0)
