READE and READPE Revisited

joe_pluta.jpgThose who forget history are doomed to repeat it, and in software, doomed to reinvent it.

By Joe Pluta

READE and READPE are powerful RPG opcodes whose use seems to be dwindling. Part of that may just be that people don't remember them, so I thought I'd revisit them in this article.

A recent article of mine in iApplication Designer, "V6R1 CL: The Story Continues," prompted the following note from reader David S.: "I enjoyed your article on V6R1 (6.1) CL. One of the enhancements you mentioned reminded me of a question I have had for some time... [about] CL and RPG modules. If I change and recompile a module (the module may be used in multiple programs), how do I find which programs need to be updated/re-created to include the new module? Does 6.1 CL/RPG help with this?"
