Error description

  • Rational Developer for System z - RDz - v9.5.0
    
    Increasing the line length for PLI programs from 72 to for
    example 100 characters the syntax highlighting of the PLI-
    editor is not reflected over the default 72 characters.
    Starting with character 73 of a line, the syntax highlighting of
    the PLI-editor is not implemented and instead greys out the
    applicable artifacts.
    
    Reproducible with PLI Editor after extending the columns setting
    to 100 via PL/I -> Editor preferences:
    1) Right-Mouse click in PL/I Editor
    2) Select Preferences ...3) In "PL/I" -> "Editor" Under
    "Margins" alter to eg Column: "100"
    3) Edit a PL/I source with contents after column 72...
    4) Check syntax highlighting and any text entries above the
    default 72 are greyed.
