Error description

  • Rational Developer for System z - RDz - v9.5.1.5
    
    Description :
    Realtime syntax parser fails in RDz v9.5.1.5 for most of PL1
    programs and the Program Control Flow cannot be used since
    "Tooling failed to initialize due to syntax error"
    

Local fix

  • Configuring a PL/I preprocessor to expand the macros should
    leave IDz with just the plain PL/I to handle.
    

Problem summary

  • The RDz PL/I parser is unable to handle certain macro language
    features such as empty macro procedure call arguments.
    

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix
