RPG is no longer a standalone language. Gone are the days of learning RPG alone; you have to interface with the larger IT environment. If you read forums or mailing lists or blogs in the i community, you'll find an almost endless variety of options for exposing your RPG business logic, ranging from the latest tools, like EGL, to some of the more venerable options, such as Net.Data.

This article is the third in a series that discusses how to find all *PGMs and *SRVPGMs that have a specific *MODULE bound into them. Before reading this article, you may find it beneficial to review the two prior articles, "Module, Module, Who's Got My Module?" and "Finding Modules in a *SRVPGM." While the stated intent is to find all uses of a given module, the actual purpose of this series of articles is to introduce the concepts and proper use of two types of system APIs: List and Open List.
