ACS RSS save to Source Physical File remove hex 25

When saving to an IBM source Physical file (PF-SRC) DO NOT save with X'25' line endings.

It makes it impossible to use script elsewhere plus there is no need for line endings in PF-SRC.

If you need line ends in ACS RSS tool then add then for PF-SRC types.

Use Case:

Open ACS RSS session.
Type statement
Save Ctrl+S
Select to save to source file.
Select source file and save.
Go to a 5250 session and navigate to the saved member and browse the member. It should be riddled with x'25' line endings.
