Error description

  • When compiling a 4GL program that contains a MENU, the following
    warning message is generated on HP Itanium:
    
    % c4gl test.4gl
    "test.ec", line 152: warning #2177-D: label "_ef0mcont" was
    declared but never
              referenced
      _ef0mcont:

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * When compiling a 4gl application with MENU, an un-referenced *
    * variable was being used.                                     *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    * Please upgrade to 4GL 7.50.xC6 when available.               *
    ****************************************************************
    

Problem conclusion

  • The label should ideally be used only when CONTINUE MENU is used
    in 4GL program. As a fix, I have introduced a new variable that
    will check if CONTINUE MENU keywords is reached, and the
    variable is set to 1. This value is used to generate the label
    in the .ec file, and then reset again. I have tested this fix
    for using many CONTINUE MENUS statements in 4GL application.
    Fixed in 4GL 7.50.xC6.
