Error description

  • IBM Rational Developer for System z - RDz - v9.5.1.1
    IBM Developer for z Systems - IDz - v14
    
    The PLI parser will flag lines that don't have errors if a
    semicolon is missing from a previous line.
    
    Sometimes this means that many lines are flagged as in error
    when only one line is actually is causing the problem because
    it is missing a semicolon.
    
    For example, in the following 2 lines you will see an error on
    line 2 instead of line1:
    
        GET.TEST_NR       = WORK_MEMBER_NUMBER
        GET.SEG_SEQ_NR    = WORK_PROP_SEG_SEQ;
    
    If the semicolon is missing from a SELECT statement then you
    may see lots of parser errors following this line:
        SELECT(TEST2)
           WHEN('TEST')
    
              DO;
              END;
           OTHERWISE
              DO;
              END;
        END;
    

Local fix

  • Check for missing semicolons and correct starting from the
    first parser error and looking above.
    

Problem summary

  • The RDz PL/I parser fails to flag lines that are missing a
    semicolon, resulting in other unrelated syntax warnings.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Modified the parser to smoothly handle missing semicolons in
    some scenarios.
    
    The problem listed in this APAR has been resolved with
    IBM Rational Developer for z Systems V9.5.1.3 Fix Pack which
    is available from the Recommended Fixes support download page:
