The PL/I parser conforms to the language as defined by IBM and to the standards listed below. The statements EXEC SQL, EXEC CICS and EXEC DLI are handled. The parsers for embedded SQL, CICS and DLI can be attached as optional modules. The PL/I parser builds a syntax tree and a symbol table and it performs name analysis.
The system includes a PL/I preprocessor. The parser and the preprocessor are attached in a way that retains the positions of syntax constructs from the source files in the syntax tree.
