TechTip: New in 7.1: The %SCANRPL Built-in Function

Replacing values has gotten a whole lot easier!

steve_pitcherWritten by Steve Pitcher

The new RPG IV built-in function %SCANRPL gives you the ability to scan a string for a value and then replace all occurrences with another value. The first parameter is the string you want to search for within another string. The second parameter is the string you want to replace it with. The third parameter is the string you want to scan. Simple.
