  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • In RDz v9.1.1 if a PL/I program contains embedded CICS language
    statements and those statements contain reference to an array
    element, it is not parsed correctly and the editor is unable to
    handle
    variable references. For example pressing PF3 after selecting a
    variable may not show the declaration of that variable.
    
    For example:
      EXEC CICS
    
              FREEMAIN
    
              DATAPOINTER (MQDatHnt(I).DataPtr)
    
              NOHANDLE;
      END EXEC.
    
    This is a valid statement, but it causes the PL/I editor to show
    variable references incorrectly.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • RDz's CICS statement parser does not handle PL/I subscripts in
    host references correctly.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Modified CICS statement parser to handle PL/I subscripts in host
    references.
    
    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:
