Error description

  • Create a pl1 program with the following source :
    
     dcl (nodePtr) pointer,
    
         1 dataNodeType based(nodePtr),
    
            3 areal char(100);
    
     dcl LinkListHeadPtr pointer;
    
     dcl 1 myLinkedList based(LinkListHeadPtr),
    
          3 next ptr,
    
          3 dataNode ptr;
    
    
    
     allocate myLinkedList;
    
     LinkListHeadPtr-?myLinkedList.next = null();
    
     allocate dataNodeType;
    
     LinkListHeadPtr-?myLinkedList.dataNode = nodePtr;
    
     free LinkListHeadPtr-?myLinkedList.dataNode-?dataNodeType;
    
     free LinkListHeadPtr-?myLinkedList;
    
    
    
    Notice that the first 'free' statement is marked with an error
    while second is not.  Both are valid and accepted by local
    syntax check and compilers.  This can be reproduced with a local
    PLI source file.

Problem summary

  • USERS AFFECTED:
    RD/z users who use RD/z to edit PL/I programs with free
    statements with complicated pointer expressions.
    ****************************************************************
    *
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    RD/z reported free statements with complicated pointer
    expressions in PL/I programs with warning annotations, even
    though the syntax was correct, when the program was edited.
    

Problem conclusion

  • RD/z correctly handles free statements with complicated pointer
    expressions in PL/I programs when they are edited.
    
    The problem listed in this APAR has been resolved with
    IBM Rational Developer for System z V8.0.3.2 Fix Pack which
    is available from the Recommended Fixes support download page:
