Error description

  • In Rational Developer for i (RDi) 9.6.0.6, ILE RPG Syntax
    Checking and Program Verify menu items are shown but the
    capability is not available when running on macOS.  Menu options
     and preferences that are not available in the currnet context
    should be grayed out or not shown.
    
    For example, in  Window > Preferences > Remote Systems > LPEX
    Editor > IBM i Parsers > ILE RPG shows "Automatic syntax
    checking" is enabled, however, editing an RPG member on macOS
    would not display syntax check errors.
