Error description

  • When using the Remote Systems Lpex editor to edit RPG that
    includes a /free section there are scenarios in which the
    styling of the comment text may not be correct.
    
    For example if a free comment (//) ends with + or - and there is
    an uneven number of quotes and the next line is also a comment,
    then the second line will not be styled as a comment.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: Users who edit RPGLE source in Remote        *
    *                 Systems LPEX Editor.                         *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Freeform comments in RPGLE source are   *
    *                      not colored like comments in the        *
    *                      editor.                                 *
    ****************************************************************

    ****************************************************************
    (The Remote Systems LPEX Editor shows source lines in different
    colors to illustrate different meanings or token boundaries.)
    
    In ILE RPG source, users who create free format comments will
    find that in certain circumstances, their comment is not
    styled correctly, when the previous line meets these
    conditions:
    
    1) is a free format comment
    2) has an odd number of single quote characters
    3) has a continuation character at the end (+/-_
    
    Then, if the next line is also a free format comment, this
    second line will not be detected by the editor to be a
    comment.
