    01.The IDz PL/I parser expanded source map stores include files
       in a case sensitive way, but PL/I includes are case
       insenstive. This ends up causing an incorrect program
       control flow graph to be calculated.
    02.RDz's COBOL parser could not handle certain cases of
       abbreviated combined relational conditions.
    03.RDz fails with out of memory error when editing PLI program
       with a recursive include.
    04.PL/I realtime syntax check issues a warning on * as a level
       identifier in define structure statement.
    05.National strings were not being recognized as valid by the
       parser within a SQL statement.
    06.DECIMAL-POINT IS COMMA. was not being passed to copybooks
       when parsing.
    07.When the type of a declared PL/I data element matches the
       name of a part of a defined structure, the PL/I real time
       syntax checker incorrectly warns of an ambiguous reference.
    08.Real-time syntax check does not warn about data truncation
       when length of value in VALUE clause exceeds length of data
       element.
    09.PARAGRAPH COBOL word being flagged as an error because it
       thinks it is a keyword.
    10.Copy Replacing statement flagging words containing '+'
    

Problem conclusion

  • 01.Modified the PL/I parser expanded source map to store
       include files in a case insenstive way.
    02.Modified COBOL parser to support unhandled cases of
       abbreviated combined relational conditions.
    03.Fixed defect in code that checks for recursive includes in
       PL/I.
    04.Modified the PL/I parser to support * as a level identifier
       in a define structure statement.
    05.Added national strings to the list of strings that are
       acceptable in SQL.
    06.Updated the creation of the Lexer to use the parents Decimal
       Point Is Comma flag.
    07.Modified the reference resolution code to correctly
       distinguish between types and parts of types.
    08.Modified COBOL parser to warn when length of value in VALUE
       clause exceeds length of data element.
    09.Added PARAGRAPH keyword as a soft keyword.
    10.Syntax for the Copy Replacing statement is wrong
