    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * In RDi use of ILE RPG keywords, or operators as identifiers  *
    * confuses the outline view.                                   *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The ILE RPG language does not have reserved words, operators
    (AND, OR) and opcodes (CALLP, EVAL, etc.) and keywords (DTAARA,
    RTNPARM, etc.) can all be used as identifiers within the
    language.  The RDi editor did not understand this and the
    outline view, hyperlink/hover etc. would not work in members
    containing reserved word identifiers.
    

Problem conclusion

  • This problem is fixed in the RDi 9.5.0.3 update.
    

Temporary fix
