Error description

  • The source scan for the RPG Live Outline view has a problem with
    valid RPG source, with a qualified name used in a D spec keyword
    where the name is split at the period to a continued line :
    
         D SOMEEXAMPLE...
         D                 DS                  BASED(NAMEPART1.
         D                                     NAMEPART2)
    
    The scan is failing on the trailing period on the split
    qualified name: BASED(NAMEPART1.
    This causes the Live Outline view to not be populated, and
    an error annotation marker to be placed on the line.
    

Local fix

  • To avoid this problem either combine the split line onto one
    line to avoid the error condition:
    
         D SOMEEXAMPLE...
         D                 DS             BASED(NAMEPART1.NAMEPART2)
    
    or switch to the older static outline view by unchecking
    'Update the Outline view when text is changed in the editor'
    in the Preferences under Remote Systems -> Remote Systems LPEX
    -> IBM i Parsers -> ILE RPG.
