Error description

  • Rational Developer for System z - RDz - v8.5
    
    When a local preprocessor statement  is added in the first row
    of a .pli file (but not related to PL/I preprocessor), the first
    entry in the outline view displays this statement, whereas only
    the second line would be expected to be displayed.
    This custom local preprocessor statement is only used
    for control purposes, so the statement itself is removed in the
    local preprocessor internally before compilation.
    The previous outline view (in RDz V8.0.3.x)  does not
    show this line, so it seems to be a regression issue.

Problem summary

    When a local preprocessor statement  is added in the first row
    of a .pli file (but not related to PL/I preprocessor), the first

    The previous outline view (in RDz V8.0.3.x)  does not

Problem conclusion

  • RDz has been enhanced to handle local preprocessor statement in
    the first row of a .pli file as described in the APAR
    description and the PL/I Outline view now displays the correct
    expected elements.
    
    The problem listed in this APAR has been resolved with
    IBM Rational Developer for System z V8.5.1.1 Fix Pack which
    is available from the Recommended Fixes support download page:
