Error description

  • In RDz 8.5.x and 9.1, the Remote Syntax Check does not honor
    theOR(!) option in PL/I macros.
    An RSC warning mark appears on the line that contains the
    statement.
    This works in "non macro" statements (i.e in normal PL/I
    programs).
    Example of program to reproduce :
    
    USSET18: proc () options(nodescriptor fetchable);
    
    %trace: procedure(cls, des);
       dcl cls      character;
       dcl des      character;
       answer('if (traceCls >= '!!cls!!') then do;') skip;
       answer('  useventcomm.logdescription ='!!des!!';');
    %end;
    
    trace(1,'start'!!'end');
    
    end USSET18;
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • The PL/I parser did not support operators in Macro arguments
    well.
    

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix
