    Rational Developer for System z - Syntax-checker does not
    tolerate a missing END PACKAGE statement while compiler does.
    
    APAR Error Description
    ***************************************************************
    Rational Developer for System z - RDz - v8.0.3.3
    
    The PL/I compiler is tolerant of not including end statements.
    The PL/I real-time syntax check parser does not currently
    tolerate the missing END PACKAGE statement.

    Re-creation steps
    
    *Process LIMITS(EXTNAME(31));
      /* Testcase PACKAGE */
      TSTPKG:PACKAGE EXPORTS(TSTPROC, FLEX_GET_KEY, FLEX_SET_KEY);
    
      TSTPROC: PROC;
      END TSTPROC;
    
      FLEX_GET_KEY: PROC;
      END FLEX_GET_KEY;
    
      FLEX_SET_KEY: PROC;
      END FLEX_SET_KEY;
    
    In the above example, the last line is flagged with error
    ''ERROR TOKEN' - unexpected token(s) ignored'. Adding the
    END PACKAGE statement will remove the error.
