Error description

  • Rational Developer for System z - RDz - v9.1.1
    Expanding PLI include files when using the PLI editor may
    result in Real time syntax check error caused by nested
    comments.
    
    If you have a comment on a %include line such as the example
    below:
    %include ABC:  /* comment */
    
    When you right click and Source > Show Expanded Source
    to expand the include comments are added around the include
    statement that causes there to be nested comments that look like
    
    this:
    /*
    %include ABC;  /*  comment  */
    */
    
    This will cause the PLI real time syntax checker to flag an
    error.
    

Local fix

  • Remove the nested comment
    

Problem summary

  • Expanding PLI include files result in Real time syntax check
    error if a comment exists in PLI include line.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The pre-processor is updated to output a correct comment mark
    whether PLI include contains a comment or not.
