yes, I had the hex dump at the end of the compile listing also. Interesting! -----Original Message----- From: James H H Lampert [mailto:jamesl@xxxxxxxxxxx] Sent: Friday, February 20, 2004 1:40 PM To: mi400@xxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: RE: [MI400] OK I give up - can't compile this MI source > THANK YOU, THANK YOU, I didn't know about the colon requirement. Yes, that was the first thing I noticed, too. The technical term is "relative branch target." Without a colon, the compiler can't digest a relative branch. (Pun intended.) Usually when I leave one out, QPRCRTPG crashes, and puts many, many pages of hex-dump at the end of the compilation listing. Once in a great while, something will compile fine with a missing relative branch target, which is kind of scary. Nothing like wasting a 20-minute compilation of a 24,000-line source member, because of a typo in one line. Personally, I'm surprised it accepted such long identifiers. I don't use any longer than about 8-10 characters. -- JHHL _______________________________________________ This is the MI Programming on the AS400 / iSeries (MI400) mailing list To post a message email: MI400@xxxxxxxxxxxx To subscribe, unsubscribe, or change list options, visit: http://lists.midrange.com/mailman/listinfo/mi400 or email: MI400-request@xxxxxxxxxxxx Before posting, please take a moment to review the archives at http://archive.midrange.com/mi400.
