  • RDi and CL

    So I have a trial version of RDi installed and find it very nice for RPG programming and I'm sure there are lots of things I haven't discovered yet.

    However, I have to say I'm very disappointed that those nice features present in RPG seem to be completely absent from the CL editor. Why doesn't it list the CL variables in the outline pane? Why aren't any files declared listed there? The files in particular I find great as I can expand it to show the field names. In CL I have to either load the source or go to a 5250 session and do a DSPFFD. And CL offers no template support so if I enter SELECT for instance, it doesn't add the ENDSL after. Not to mention Ctrl-Space to show possible options for what you've entered so far and a host more absent features. It's a pity IBM haven't considered the CL part of this or is just limited in the trial version?

    Not just the trial version.

      Yeah, I don't like RDi for CL. I tend to turn off most of the features and just use it as a (more or less) plain text editor for CL programs.

      Fortunately, this isn't usually a big deal as I don't spend very much time writing CL these days. (In the 90's this would've been a bigger problem for me.)

        Can everyone who cares about such matters check out this RFE for a free RDi version here http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/rf...e&CR_ID=108558 and vote for it ...

          Thanks for the responses. For us, we use both RPG and CL so the lack of features in the CL editor are a bit of a disappointment.
          I see there's a RFE for an improved outline view in CL - ID 10973 (https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/rfe/execute?use_case=viewRfe&CR_ID=10973)

              Ah, seems the links don't work until you sign in. You need to click on the person icon at the top right and select Sign In. Once done, the links will work.
