RE: Issue with embedded lists in a command



fixed

Dan,

That is how I learned too back in the day. I don't create commands that often anymore so I usually work from something similar to what I want. The command I used had them in this order to help pull like elements together and make it easier for whoever came behind.

You're probably right. I'm working from memory on this and it has been a
long time. I looked at some of my commands and I've always put all the
parms at the top above all the labelled groups. I learned this a long, long time
ago; parser rules change over time.

Hi Dan

IIRC, you CAN put ELEM groups and QUAL groups anywhere - they are
labeled, so it doesn't matter - seems I did that for some commands at RJS, as
a kind of self-documentation.

Of course, I have been wrong a couple times this year, and it's only the 2nd
week!

Rick,

Your code is arranged incorrectly. First the CMD keyword statement, then
all the PARM keyword statements, then the tagged groups of ELEM or QUAL
or whatever referenced in your TYPE's.

Subject: Issue with embedded lists in a command

I am working on a command that I want to have a list as one of the
parameters but I also want the parameter to contain a list as one of the
elements.

I have a code value as the first parameter. For that code value there are
four pieces of information; the code itself, a start date, an end date, and
message information. The message information is itself a list made up of the
message text, configuration text, and size text. So far so good.

Where the issue comes in is when I define the code and message as lists.
There can be up to two codes and there could be up to three message lines
for each code. When I specify the code with a max value of two (MAX(2))
and the message with a max value of three (MAX(3)) the command will not
compile and I get the error shown here. Displaying second level text didn't
tell me anything I didn't already know.

CPD0258 30 More than three levels of nesting specified for keyword
ENRCODE.

I have posted the code here http://code.midrange.com/bf8f32f019.html.

I am not seeing where the three levels are. It looks to me like just two; the
ENRCODE PARM line, and the ELEM line with ENRMSG. Can someone help
me out with what I'm missing?
