Error description

  • The outline view for a PL/I source does not to recognize the end
    of a procedure, if the pre-processor statements before the end
    of the procedures do not have a ; (semi-colon) at the end of the
    statement.
    
    Example:
    
    AAA: proc();
        PRE_PROCESSOR_STMT1()
        PRE_PROCESSOR_STMT2()
     end AAA;
    
    BBB: proc();
        PRE_PROCESSOR_STMT3()
        PRE_PROCESSOR_STMT1()
    end BBB;
    
    The outline view will show:
    
    +-AAA
      |
      +-BBB
    
    as opposed to
    +-AAA
    +-BBB
    

Local fix

  • If a semi-colon is added at the end of the pre-processor
    statement, the outline view can display the procedure
    information correctly.
    

Problem summary

  • The preprocessor statements not ending with a semi-colon was a
    special case that needed to be handled properly.
    

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix
