Error description

  • Rational Developer for System z v9.x PL/I and LPEX Editor shows
    multiple erroneous problem markers when there is a space within
    PIC specifications
    
    E.g. DCL XX PIC '( n)n' cause the erroneous error markers. Note
    the  blank / space after the open bracket.
    
    The problem can also cause a loop, hang or long duration time
    before the problem markers appear. The number of problem markers
    can be large.
    

Local fix

  • Many problem markers disappear when the spaces are removed from
    "quote, open bracket, space(s)"
    e.g. change
    DCL XX PIC '( 9)9'
    to
    DCL XX PIC '(9)9'
    

Problem summary

  • The RDz PL/I Parser incorrectly identifies PIC specifications
    that contain space characters.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Modified the RDz PL/I Parser to accept PIC specifications that
    contain white space.
    
    The problem listed in this APAR has been resolved with
    IBM Rational Developer for System z V9.1.1.2 Fix Pack which
    is available from the Recommended Fixes support download page:
