Error description

  • Rational Developer for System z - RDz - PLI editor does not
    handle EBCDIC '3F', UTF-8 x'1A' (SUB) in comments
    
    None of the source code following the SUB control command
    contains any PLI syntax highlights.  The source after the
    SUB is all in black.
    

Local fix

  • Deleting the SUB control character will allow the parser
    highlighting to work,
    or use the LPEX editor.
    

Problem summary

  • RDz's PL/I Parser treats the (SUB) character like an (EOF)
    character, which causes parse and display problems.
    

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix
