It means codetools parsed the unit, but the parser didn't come to the
position, where the cursor is. For example if there is an "end." in
front. Search for the "end."
You can find out in "Code Explorer" what the parser found.

Another possibility is that irankiai.pas is/was an include file.
Open irankiai.pas, then IDE menu / Source / View Unit information /
clear include cache.
