Error description

  • The IBM Rational Team Concert (RTC) z/OS PLI dependency scanner
    does not recognize the include syntax that contains a leading
    comma.
    The problem is a combination of an %include starting with a
    comma and the presence of ! characters (either in code or
    comments or text value).
    With the following code, TSTINC2 is not listed by the source
    code data editor:
    TSTPLI1: proc() options(main);
    %include TSTINC1;
    dcl  1 struct1        unaligned
          , %include TSTINC2
          ;;
       var1 = '!';
       Display( var1 );
    end TSTPLI1;
    =================================
    a- TSTINC2 is listed if you change the language definition to
    use the deprecated scanner.
    b- TSTINC2 is listed if you only change var1='!' into var1='a'
    with default scanner
    c- TSTINC2 is listed if you only put the comma after unaligned
    with default scanner (thus with var1='!')
    dcl  1 struct1        unaligned ,
          %include TSTINC2
          ;;
       var1 = '!';
    WORKAROUND:
    Include member (TSTINC2)  is listed correctly when you do one
    of the following:
    1)Use the deprecated scanner
    2) the comma is placed on the previous source line after
    "unaligned" with default scanner
    dcl  1 struct1        unaligned ,
          %include TSTINC2
