Error description

  • When editing a PL/I program with associated includes in PL/I
    editor, "Ambiguous reference to NULL" messages are displayed
    for includes containing "NULL".
    
    Steps to reproduce :
    1) Create a remote project and add a .pli file to the remote
    project with the associated includes (containing some NULL
    statements).
    2) Make sure the property group points to the location of all
    include files
    3) Open the .pli source in the PLI editor and hover over the
    includes : you can see the warnings for NULL.
