Question:

I have a C++ program the contains square brackets '[]'. After adding through the Eclipse UI, they appear as different characters. Why are these characters changed while other characters are not ?  

Answer:

By default C/C++ expects codepage 1047.  Change codepage on both the MVS emulator and Endevor.cfg to use CP1047.
