Error description

  • Rational Developer for i - RDi - does not correctly color free
    form text when using /if and /endif compiler directives.
    For example, in the following RPGLE program the dsply is not
    always shown in red , nor is the /if defined always displayed
    in blue:
          /free
           dsply 'bla';
          /if defined(FOO)
            dsply 'blub ';
          /endif
          /end-free
    According to the RPGLE reference->chapter 2 (Compiler
    directives), these all need to start in column 7.  When I first
    enter the /if defined(FOO) and hit enter this line is displayed
    in blue, the same as the /free.
    I then add dsply 'blah"; <enter>, and it shows up in black.
    The /endif<enter>,  shows up in blue the same as /free.
    If I then close the program and reopen it, the /if, and /endif
    are now in black and the dsply is in red.
    

Local fix

  • Move code to column 8 then it is colored correctly.
